In a recent article published in the Wilsonville Spokesman, HBA reviewed some of the critical safety precautions that builders are using to minimize COVID-19 threats on construction sites an explained why keeping construction going is so critical to Oregon. With 100,000 people working in the building industry, it is absolutely imperative that we keep construction moving forward and work collaboratively with local and state governments to implement appropriate social distancing protocols on construction sites that minimizse risk. In recent weeks, both the federal and state governments have given the green light to construction, and HBA has been working feverishly with local building departments to share best practices with builders and contractors. You can learn more about these best practices here. Additionally, help us spread the word about construction safety by sharing pictures of your site specific safety precautions with Adrian McCarthy, HBA Director of Communications, at email@example.com and on our facebook page here.
