COVID 19 Safety Protocols  & Guidelines Courses

As the leading voice for the building industry, BIASC has a responsibility to ensure that the safety of builders, associates, trade partners, and the community remains a top priority.

As COVID-19 has seeped into our communities, the implementation of project safety guidelines is paramount to keeping our projects moving forward in today’s environment.

BIASC’s COVID-19 Safety Protocols and Guidelines courses provide in-depth education and best practices for establishing a “Safety First” construction site. Enrollment and completion of these courses should be a top priority for project managers, project superintendents, field associates, and trade foremen.

Upon completing the course studies, and passing a final exam, participants will receive a BIASC Certification verifying that they and their projects and communities are certified by the BIASC in “Safety First” protocols. 

Additionally, the project will receive 50 stake signs to place around their respective projects that will have the builder company names and the BIASC endorsement as a “Safety First” project. Inspectors and other officials will respect that the project has taken these steps to prioritize safety as a top priority.
