Phase 1 & 2

Construction Restart Safety Requirements

This guidance, including sample documents, are provided here to help you comply with the Phase 1 & 2 safety requirements and return to work as quickly as possible.

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 jobsite safety requirements.


Failure to comply with the Phase 1 & 2 Jobsite Safety Requirements could result in a jobsite being shut down, potential legal liability, safety fines, or loss of license.
