COVID 19 UPDATE:
Construction has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to safety, and the AGC partners involved with Educator Externship are national leaders in safety protocols. At this time we are moving ahead with the program, with flexibility in mind as we get closer to the July 13 program start date. As the schedule indicates, parts of the program are virtual and others will be face to face, as the local restrictions allow. We are working very closely with our participating companies to insure that the six foot distancing is feasible, that handwashing stations are available, and that any food provided is individually wrapped (ie: box lunches rather than buffet; bottled water or sanitized filling stations, etc.) We are abiding by the restrictions on how many participants can gather at one time, but each county and state is different. We have A/B groupings planned if needed, and our participating companies will also be mindful of meeting size as they commit their time and space. At this time, in most areas, facemasks are not required, but suggested. We will provide our usual PPE – hardhats, safety vests, and glasses.
We are mindful of the concerns, and are doing as much as possible to mitigate them, but ultimately each individual is responsible for their own actions and precautions. If an individual is in a high risk category, or is uncomfortable with the protocols we have in place, they should consider their own safety before registering.
