AGC Safety Stand Down Provides Contractors an Opportunity to Address Coronavirus Health and Safety Practices
On April 9, 2020, more than 500 contractors and 31,000 employees participated in a Safety Stand Down supported by the AGC of America. The purpose of the Safety Stand Down was to provide these employers the opportunity to focus upon the coronavirus related health and safety measures in work places and on jobsites. As Brain Turmail, a spokesman for the AGC of America put it “You need to appreciate that your ability to continue operating construction projects is dependent upon ensuring that you are protecting your workers and, through that, protecting the public from the spread of the coronavirus. There’s no margin for error here.”
Stay safe and healthy out there.
