The World Health Organization and the United States have declared the coronavirus a public health emergency.

Join us for an informative session to help businesses be ready to deal with a potential outbreak.

This session will cover:

  • What is the coronavirus and what are the symptoms?
  • What are the best safety and health practices in the workplace?
  • What are the elements of a pandemic business continuity plan?
  • What are the truths and rumors of the coronavirus?

The Building Industry Association of Hawaii has been awarded a federal Department of Labor grant to provide education and training to address occupational safety and health hazards encountered in trenching and excavation.

Employees and employers who work in jobsites with trenches and excavations are invited to attend! As a result of OSHA’s National Emphasis Program (NEP) on Trenching & Excavation, increased enforcement presence is expected at work sites throughout the nation to reduce and eliminate hazards associated with trenching and excavation. Of particular significance to local companies, state Inspectors will initiate inspections whenever they observe an open trench or an open excavation, regardless of whether violations are readily observed. Guam and Hawaii have begun.
