Getting Back to Work: Important Concerns for the AEC Community
This program will address three important topics that AGC Members should understand when deciding whether and how to return to the office and the project site including:
- The broader resiliency issues during shut-downs.
- The critical plan in returning business to scale as quickly as possible.
- The shift in the regulatory and competitive environment.
Moderated by former AGC MA Board Member Joseph A. Barra, Esq., our three panelists will discuss the practical considerations of moving forward in a COVID-19 environment as they pertain to Labor and Employment, Industrial Hygiene and Risk Management.
