Just three weeks ago, doctors diagnosed the first case of coronavirus COVID-19 in the US. Unfortunately, since then, the virus has continued to spread. Despite the fact that the government is taking serious measures to contain and reduce the scale of destruction, each of us can smooth the growth curve of the incidence rate. Learn more how to achieve this in construction industry.
Where to start prevention
According to OSHA, “measures for protecting workers from exposure to, and infection with, the novel coronavirus, COVID-19 depend on the type of work being performed and exposure risk, including potential for interaction with infectious people and contamination of the work environment.” The risk of transmission for those employed outside the healthcare sector is low. However, here is a general guidance for all U.S. workers and employers from OSHA:
“- Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. When soap and running water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand rub with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands that are visibly soiled.
– Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
– Avoid close contact with people who are sick.”
The way to reduce face to face interactions
One of the major prevention way is reduction of face to face interactions. Construction industry constantly deals with data and conduct daily reporting. And there is a solution to avoid delivering reports to the office. Mobile apps and mobile forms have been providing enormous advantages to construction industry for a long time.
