NAHB encourages members and all other residential construction companies to halt work for at least 10 minutes the week of Jan. 11-15, 2021, for a COVID-19 Jobsite Safety Stand Down to remind workers what they should do to keep themselves safe from coronavirus and to help reduce its spread.
Three Steps to Hold Your Own Stand Down
- Prepare. Compile the information you will need for the stand down. NAHB has developed detailed blueprints — in English and Spanish — for builders and trade contractors to conduct their COVID-19 safety stand downs.
- Cover the basics. As COVID-19 cases surge, stress the importance of preventing the virus spread by encouraging workers to following basic infection prevention measures.
- Hold your stand down. Present the information to the workers, keeping it short and simple. The safety information can be distributed digitally (through email and/or text).
