Ensuring safety at the workplace isn’t easy even during the best of times. With the pandemic, a new set of challenges is thrown into the picture. Construction firms reopening sites in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic need to take additional precautions to prevent and curb the spread of Covid-19.

Some companies have come up with visual aids, such as helmets and harnesses in different colours for the various work zones to enforce the new safety requirements.
