We have had a lot of calls about the Model Plan. CLICK HERE FOR THE MODEL PLAN developed by the Safety Committee COVID-19 Task Force; and other COVID-19 information. Note: The Model Plan can and should be customized to fit your business type and model.


As most are aware Governor Evers issued an Executive Order yesterday and companies performing construction work are exempted as "essential" businesses.

A short time ago we learned that the State is requiring "essential" businesses to have a written " COVID-19 Response Plan ." Click here for the basic information which should be included in any Plan.

By implementing a COVID-19 Response Plan, an “essential” company pledges to dedicate resources immediately to identify and mitigate situations in the workplace which may introduce, expose or spread COVID-19.

Each company’s written plan, unique to the operations under its control, will document the identification and mitigation measures taken, including all engineering controls, administrative controls and safe work practices, and will update that plan on a regular basis for the duration of the COVID-19 Situation.

The COVID-19 Response Plan must include:

  • Ban in-person meetings (internal or external) and employee convenings (formal or informal) of any size. Employee communication handled virtually wherever possible.
  • Regular body temperature scans performed and logged for all on-site employees(contingent on availability of scanning devices, which are in short supply due to acute global demand).
  • Immediate workflow audit that removes instances of employees being within 6’ of each other.
  • Reduction of on-site work hours to minimum needed to sustain operations.
  • Staggered shifts and work hours to minimize on-site human presence at a given time.
  • Staggered use of all shared spaces, including bathrooms, breakrooms and lunchrooms.
  • Staggered facility entry and exit procedures.
  • Mandatory work at home for all employees except the absolute minimum required for baseline production and logistics functions.
  • Sanitary processes implemented throughout facility (soap, hand sanitizer, single-use gloves, doors propped open, hands-free capabilities, no shared food).
  • Blue tape marking of surfaces that receive frequent human contact; disinfection of these surfaces multiple times daily.
  • International travel ban –business and personal.
  • Domestic business travel bans except for critical operations (with senior management approval). Domestic personal travel requires employee to self-quarantine for 14 days and be symptom-free before returning to work.
  • Any employee returning from a Level 2 or 3 CDC travel country must self-quarantine for 14 days and be symptom-free before returning to work.
  • No deliveries except those that support production activities or emergency building maintenance.
  • No visitors (including suppliers and customers) except those approved by senior management.
  • Employees must immediately report symptoms associated with COVID-19 exposure.
  • Employees must report contact with any person who tests positive for COVID-19; employee must subsequently self-quarantine for 14 days and be symptom-free before returning to work.
  • Essential manufacturing personnel should be evaluated in the testing queue, especially in circumstances in which employers would request workers to be sequestered on site, certified clean and then shelter in the workplace. 
In response to the overwhelming number of questions with regard to employer responsibilities related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the AGC Safety Committee has provided members with some guidance related to recommended practices and documents.
