News & Press: COVID-19 Updates

COVID-19 Updates - 5.14.20

Thursday, May 14, 2020  
Message from Executive Board:
 
Today, the Governor released a mandatory best practices list for reopening construction in NYS. NYC has not yet reopened for all construction. We recommend that all members read the document below and plan to be in compliance when we hopefully open up on June 07, 2020. This publication has both mandatory and recommended practices for construction work.
 
The Executive Board has started a Safety Committee to research what is required by OSHA and the US CDC as far as proper safety compliance. They will review this and provide comments as soon as possible. It is important to note that the MPC will not provide any specific recommendations or advice for such things as job site safety. We will provide you with information from official sources and, in some cases, opinions from subject matter experts. This aspect of “opening up” will require planning and some work on your part.
 
We would like to hear from all of our members as to how they are arranging for compliance and any other ideas that they have. We have created a new email address safety@nycmpc.org to compile all of your valuable suggestions.
 
We would also like to hear your comments, questions, and concerns about items we send you such as this Construction Guidelines for Employers and Employees.
