The COVID-19 pandemic has caused numerous changes in safety regulations on jobsites throughout the country. While many projects have workers naturally spaced apart, comparable to the six-foot social distance in government proposals, other aspects of the jobsite have been of concern to workers and contractors alike.

In response to the general lack of government guidance on the subject of jobsite safety, many member companies of the AGC (Associate General Contractors of America)  is holding a stand down for safety action on Thursday, April 9, 20. On that day, hundreds of construction firms across the country will stop work and hold coronavirus-focused safety meetings as part of a nationwide safety campaign.
