If you are unable to click on the links below go to the Home Builders of Alabama Association and go under the Covid-19 tab and you will be able to print off the Essential form for your workers.  We and most everyone else is having email issues due to the volume of emails being sent.  I will also post this information on our website:  https://athensalabamahomebuilders.com/

There is a blank word templete that you should complete for your workers to keep this letter with them.

COVID-19 Resources

The following resources are provided to keep you and your business informed and protected during the COVID-19 crisis. To stay updated on developments as they occur, be sure that you’re subscribed to our HBAA email updates. If you’re not already getting them, email info@hbaa.org and ask to be added to our mail list.

Essential Worker Status

Residential construction has been deemed an essential business in Alabama and not subject to shelter in place orders. The HBAA has prepared a letter and wallet card stating that you are working on or working in support of residential construction and are therefore considered an essential worker and exempt from any shelter in place orders. You may customize the letter and put it on your company letterhead; we suggest keeping a copy of it in your vehicle in the event that you are stopped by law enforcement on your way to a job site. You may also customize, copy and (if desired) laminate the card to carry in your wallet for easy access.

Jobsite Safety

The HBAA and our local Home Builders Associations have worked diligently to ensure that construction remains an essential business in Alabama. In order to maintain this designation, you must do your part in ensuring your job sites are following all guidelines set forth by the CDC and other agencies with regard to COVID-19. That includes social distancing, limiting persons on the job site to 10 or less, providing alcohol-based hand sanitizers and/or handwashing stations, and other steps set forth in these guidelines.

We have prepared job site safety signage in English and Spanish to help your workforce do their part to limit the spread of COVID-19. Feel free to download and display it on your job site.

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has also created a page of job site safety and recordkeeping guidance for Coronavirus.
