ASA Responds to Executive Order on Protecting Worker Health and Safety

ASA, along with the Construction Industry Safety Coalition (CISC), wrote to OSHA regarding President Biden’s recently issued “Executive Order on Protecting Worker Health and Safety.” Per the order, the President has tasked the Agency with several actions including the issuance of clear guidance regarding protecting employees from COVID-19 in the workplace and considering whether an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) is warranted to address the pandemic.  Per the letter, we wanted to inform OSHA of CISC’s work to keep construction workers safe in these unprecedented times and to request a meeting to discuss ways that we may assist the Agency in its efforts related to developing guidance for COVID-19 prevention in construction workplaces.”
