Dear Contractors,

To keep contractors up to date on important issues related to COVID-19, the CCB will be sending regular emails with resources, updates, information about agency services and essential news for the contractor community. We'll try to keep these communications brief and to the point.

On Monday March 23, 2020, Oregon Governor Kate Brown issued Executive Order 20-12. The order did not include construction among the business or industries required to close. However, the order does require all business that remain in operation to employ social distancing guidelines and to designate an employee or officer to establish implement and enforce social distancing policies consistent with guidance from the Oregon Health Authority.

Contractors that continue to operate are encouraged to work closely with their safety specialists and as appropriate with legal counsel to ensure they operate in compliance with these requirements.

 

Construction Worksite Safety

As construction projects continue, CCB encourages contractors to incorporate COVID-19 safety planning and worksite-specific safety practices into their projects. Contractors should continually evaluate specific risks associated with a particular job site in light of the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Oregon Health Authority and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Construction Industry Resources

Additional links to construction industry practices and guidelines follow. These links are provided as informational resources and are not individually vetted by CCB. Any guidelines must be read in the context of official guidance as well as the specific circumstances of your job site:

AGC Oregon: COVID-19 Safety and Health

OHBA: COVID-19 Job Site Practices

IBEW: COVID-19 Prevention Guidelines for Construction Trades

NECA: Managing COVID-19 In the Workplace


Governor Requests Help from Contractor Community

Oregon's medical facilities may soon need essential medical supplies in vast quantities to fight the COVID-19 virus. The governor has requested that private sector (including contractors) donate equipment such as latex-free gloves, procedural masks, surgical masks, N95 respirators and N95 filters. For more information about where you can take your donations, view the article on My Oregon News.
