COVID-19 Guidance for the Construction Workforce
El Centro Hispano has created this digital media toolkit to promote safety, training and community outreach programs to address COVID-19 pandemic prevention and mitigation in the construction industry.
This bilingual guidance is based on CDC guidelines and is advisory in nature and informational in content, and is intended to assist employers, workers and their families in providing a safe and healthful workplace.
As cold weather moves in, people spend more time indoors, and as the holidays approach, let’s take steps to slow the spread of COVID-19 by wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet apart, avoiding crowds, and washing hands often. The more steps we take, the more we are protected against COVID-19. Para información en español, visita ncunidacontraelvirus.org
Stay informed. Talk to your employer, supervisor, or union representative who is responsible for responding to COVID-19 concerns. See these sources for more information on worker exposures to COVID-19.
