COVID-19

 

Stronger Together

The following suggestions are compiled from anecdotal sources and are presented here to provide hints at how an EIFS applicator can accommodate an improved worksite while the COVID-19 pandemic presents its challenges.

Suggestions for Operating EIFS Jobsites

The COVID-19 pandemic has altered the workplace and the way we go about our daily lives. Through advocacy and providing useful information, EIMA continues to be available to the entire industry during these challenging times.

Advocating for the industry continues to be a core function of EIMA. On March 27, EIMA called on Governors Hogan (Maryland) and Cuomo (NY) to favor the construction industry as essential businesses. This effort is shared by several other building and construction associations. Read the letter here: EIMA Makes Push for Construction Industry.

EIMA has also worked with the Associated Builders and Contractors of Pennsylvania to push for the passage and adoption of SB 613: Support SB 613 and EIMA Calls on Gov. Wolf to Sign SB613 (Update: Gov. Wolf is reopening construction on May 1)

EIMA conducted a survey of the EIFS industry to determine how COVID-19 was affecting their individual businesses. The results were collected between March 26 and March 31, and can be viewed here: Survey: The Impact of COVID-19 on the EIFS Industry

Congress passed the CARES Act, which included assistance for small businesses. The Paycheck Protection Program provides forgivable loans for small businesses during these challenging times, which can cover up to 8 weeks of payroll costs, mortgages, rent, utilities, and more. As of Friday, April 3, individuals began applying for this assistance.

Worker safety has long been a priority for the construction community. During these challenging times, the need for the safety around all individuals on and around a jobsite is only more critical. As the Associated General Contractors references, few industries are better at handling the evolving safety regulations than the construction industry. AGC Working Safe
