Considering COVID-19, Austin Mandates Safety Measure for Construction Workers27 Apr Jeff Embree
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the American Institute of Architects posted guidelines that the city of Austin is mandating for architects and builders to ensure the safety of workers and the continuation of building projects that are currently in progress.
The precautions are as follows:
Requirement for workers to wear face masks
Maintaining a 6-foot distance from each other
Staggered shifts for sites with more than 10 workers
Daily COVID-19 briefings to reiterate safety requirements
Hand-washing stations and restroom facilities placed at least six feet apart
No-touch trash cans and single-use, disposable paper towels provided
COVID-19 Safety Monitor personnel
