A new video from the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) provides guidance for stopping the spread of infectious diseases in work zones. It is based on recommendations from the CDC, US OSHA, and industry sources.
Tips include screening employees as they enter the job site, taking turns viewing documents, removing coffee pots and microwaves, and restricting access to confined spaces. Employees should change clothes before and after work and keep the two sets separated.
For sanitation, employers are advised to provide hand-washing stations when possible, separated from porta-potties and break areas. All shared surfaces—such as steering wheels, knobs, and levers—must be properly sanitized after each use.
