Phase 1 | Back to Work Requirements
Here are the requirements recommended by the construction working group that were approved by Gov. Inslee today allowing residential construction to go back to work.
Phase 1 construction only authorizes activities on existing construction projects that can be performed while maintaining the six-foot social distancing requirements and comply with the other Phase 1 Jobsite Safety Requirements. (*Activities that require work performed less than six-feet apart is not allowed under Phase 1, but will be authorized later under additional Phase 2 job site safety requirements.)
Please note, failure to comply with the Phase 1 Jobsite Safety Requirements could result in a job site being shut down, potential legal liability, safety fines, or loss of license.
Phase 1 | Jobsite Safety Plan
The first requirement is that a COVID-19 Jobsite Safety Plan, signed by the contractor, must be developed for every job site. This plan must also be produced at the request of any employee or regulator. You can find a complete Jobsite Safety Plan template for you to customize for each of your job sites below:
Phase 1 | Required Jobsite Postings
Under the Phase 1 Jobsite Safety Requirements, you are required to post on each jobsite, publicly viewable at all times, the following documents. Each Word doc below provides a template that should be customized to your specific jobsite.
- Notice to Workers, Subcontractors, Government Officials of Work to be performed on the jobsite
- Center for Disease Control Cleaning and Disinfection Guide
