NAHB has developed detailed blueprints — in English and Spanish — for builders and trade contractors to conduct their COVID-19 safety stand-downs.

Since Washington’s COVID-19 job site safety requirements already call for weekly safety trainings, we encourage you to send us photos of your next training so we can show our support for this national effort on social media!  Send your photos to
