Since safety doesn’t happen by accident, the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) released comprehensive guidance for protecting workers from COVID-19. Focus on Construction Health: COVID-19 offers construction employers a practical blueprint, tools, and resources for combating COVID-19 on the jobsite. Not only does it contain basic information on the virus and how it can spread, the guidance details a 7-step strategy to reduce and control COVID-19 hazards and suggests implementing a Job Safety Analysis (JSA). AIHA’s guidance during COVID is of particular importance since it represents occupational health and safety professionals whose jobs are to anticipate, recognize, evaluate, and control workplace hazards.
