Home building jobsites all over the country stopped work the week of Jan. 11 to educate workers and subcontractors on proper coronavirus safety measures as hundreds of NAHB member companies and HBAs participated in the second national COVID-19 Jobsite Safety Stand Down
Even with vaccine distribution in full swing across the country, the holidays presented a troubling opportunity for the virus to spread. NAHB and its partners in the Construction Industry Safety Coalition agreed that it was time to remind home builders of the importance of continued diligence to keep members safe and stop community spread.
created and provided by the coalition, home builders, subcontractors, building suppliers, HBAs, and other associated businesses provided focused education on what workers on job sites should do to keep themselves healthy and flatten the curve for everyone.
See a few selected pictures below of builders holding their safety stand downs earlier this month. And remember: Any day is a good day to review COVID-19 and other safety procedures on the jobsite.
