For the safety of our employees, clients, and partners, BCCI has developed industry-leading jobsite protocols in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. These comprehensive protocols, which were authored in partnership with environmental health and safety (EHS) consultant EnviroNova, follow the most current guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control, Cal/OSHA, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the World Health Organization and comply with federal, state, and local public health orders.
The purpose of these operating guidelines is to ensure confidence in the safety of our work environments and provide a course of action for BCCI to continue construction work. In our continued commitment to preventing workplace exposures to COVID-19, our jobsite protocols include the following:
- Understanding How COVID-19 is Spread and Symptoms of Illness
- Actions for Protecting Employees and Required PPE
- Steps to Prevent Infection
- On-site Safety Inspections
- Daily Procedures and Disinfection
- Response Procedures for an Infected Jobsite
Before entering any BCCI job site, all employees, subcontractors, and consultants must review BCCI’s COVID-19 Response Training Deck and sign a confirmation that they have read, understand, and will comply with the safety guidelines and protocols. Workers will NOT be permitted on-site until this training is complete, and the acknowledgment is signed.
Note: Due to the evolving nature of the current novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, BCCI’s COVID-19 Jobsite Protocols and procedures are subject to changing conditions and safety requirements. If recommendations and guidelines from authorities are duplicative, different, inconsistent or in conflict, the more restrictive and stringent procedure will be followed at the jobsite. These protocols will be updated with best practices as conditions, guidelines, and recommendations change. BCCI’s Safety Team will distribute updates and revisions to this plan as soon as practical.
