BAM members Howie Zetah, Kurt Welker, John McGuine and Mike Gohman met with Commissioner Leppink for an hour and discussed their concerns about the required Preparedness Plans. One of the points they requested was additional time to put together their COVID-19 Preparedness Plans. They were an effective voice for the industry!
Two more construction webinars added, enforcement date extended until after July 10
To assist construction businesses in finalizing their COVID-19 Preparedness Plans, the Department of Labor and Industry (DLI) has scheduled two additional webinars on July 7 and 8 to answer business’s questions so they can be confident the plans they have developed address the risks of COVID-19 transmission at their worksites.
Based on feedback received from the construction industry, the COVID-19 Preparedness Plan Requirements Guidance — Construction document was revised and was re-posted on the Stay Safe MN website June 25.
Enforcement date extended
DLI will not take enforcement action until after July 10 against construction businesses for failure to complete a written COVID-19 Preparedness Plan.
