In a decision supported by the Construction Industry Safety Coalition, and the industry at large, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration applied its COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard only to the health care industry. CISC, of which ABC is a member, released a statement saying it was “pleased that the Biden administration and OSHA listened to the concerns and recommendations of the construction industry in formulating a COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard. OSHA made the right decision to issue an ETS to cover tasks associated with high-exposure risk levels and not construction operations, which are generally low risk.”

CISC was formed to provide data and information to OSHA on regulatory, interpretive and policy initiatives. As such, workplace safety and health are top priorities for the agency and its 30 trade associations. For more information, visit buildingsafely.org
