ICC Letter to Governor Whitmer

We requested information to help Inspectors stay protected against Covid 19. "Probably the most useful info MIOSHA can provide is their webpage with an online training program. Even if the online training program isn’t what you are looking for, there is a lot of reference material with links to it on that same webpage".

Here’s a link: :https://www.michigan.gov/leo/0,5863,7-336-78421_11407_30453-89915--,00.html

Stay safe! Jim,Senior Construction Safety Consultant Education and Training Division, MIOSHA

 

The following is the information that the Bureau of Construction Codes has been provided from the Governor's Office regarding construction.

Q: Is construction allowed under the executive order?

A: Some limited forms of construction are permissible, including construction to maintain and improve essential public works like roads, bridges, the telecommunications infrastructure, and public health infrastructure. Construction workers may also undertake such projects as necessary to maintain and improve the safety, sanitation, and essential operations of residences. In addition, businesses may designate construction firms to provide necessary support to the work of the businesses' critical infrastructure workers. All construction work that is carried out while the order is in effect must be done in accordance with the mitigation measures required under section 5(c) of the order.

5. Businesses and operations that employ critical infrastructure workers may continue in-person operations, subject to the following conditions:

(c) Businesses and operations maintaining in-person activities must adopt social distancing practices and other mitigation measures to protect workers and patrons. Those practices and measures include, but are not limited to: (1) Restricting the number of workers present on premises to no more than is strictly necessary to perform the business’s or operation’s critical infrastructure functions. (2) Promoting remote work to the fullest extent possible. (3) Keeping workers and patrons who are on premises at least six feet from one another to the maximum extent possible, including for customers who are standing in line. (4) Increasing standards of facility cleaning and disinfection to limit worker and patron exposure to COVID-19, as well as adopting protocols to clean and disinfect in the event of a positive COVID-19 case in the workplace. (5) Adopting policies to prevent workers from entering the premises if they display respiratory symptoms or have had contact with a person who is known or suspected to have COVID-19. (6) Any other social distancing practices and mitigation measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control.

Please review the attached Executive Order 2020-21 for further information.

Governor Whitmer was clear, New Homes are not considered essential.https://youtu.be/rX3FVsajlsk?t=1284
