As businesses begin to open up in Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, assuring employee safety and maintaining workplace compliance is imperative. As of May 1, 2020, (May 18, 2020 in New Jersey) all businesses in the construction industry are allowed to operate, but must operate in a way that prevents the spread of COVID-19, and ensures the safety of employers, employees and the public.
One of the most important aspects of being able to assure jobsite safety is to have a pre-entry screening capability and protocol in place, and on site. Current construction industry guidelines are requiring employers adhere to the existing Department of Health and CDC guidelines, but are also requiring additional measures such as on-site screening as well as identifying a “Pandemic Safety Officer” for each project or jobsite. This individuals’ primary responsibility would be to communicate and enforce social distancing and mask wearing, as well as the other industry guidelines.
While establishing these screening protocols is vital to reopening your business, it’s not your core focus, and you may not have the resources or staff to set up your own program. Compliance Consultants Inc. (CCI) has developed a 3-tiered pre-entry screening program that can provide the level of safety and compliance that will allow you to be flexible with specific jobsite needs, as well as ensure that your employees have a level of reassurance as they re-enter the workplace.
From providing an on-site screening station, to staffing a full-time daily monitor, and even facilitating all the responsibilities of the Pandemic Safety Officer, CCI can equip your site with the proper level of pre-entry screening and assure maintenance of construction industry COVID-19 recommendations. Trained medical professionals can assure that your jobsite is compliant, and that staff and employees are receiving an appropriate level of screening, monitoring and even broader guideline communication.
