The National Association of Minority Contractors Dallas - Fort Worth Chapter is closely monitoring the ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. As the situation continues to change rapidly, our top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our community. As construction or related industries are being considered as an essential business and can operate, we encourage workplaces to follow OSHA Guidance and educate your employees to keep our community safe.

"The Families First Coronavirus Response Act Poster.” This poster provides information regarding employee rights concerning Paid Sick Leave and Expanded Family and Medical Leave Under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. The poster takes effect April 1, 2020 and goes through December 31, 2020.
This information has been developed by an OSHA Compliance Assistance Specialist and is intended to assist employers, workers, and others as they strive to improve workplace health and safety. While we attempt to thoroughly address specific topics [or hazards], it is not possible to include discussion of everything necessary to ensure a healthy and safe working environment in a presentation of this nature. Thus, this information must be understood as a tool for addressing workplace hazards, rather than an exhaustive statement of an employer’s legal obligations, which are defined by statute, regulations, and standards. Likewise, to the extent that this information references practices or procedures that may enhance health or safety, but which are not required by a statute, regulation, or standard, it cannot, and does not, create additional legal obligations. Finally, over time, OSHA may modify rules and interpretations in light of new technology, information, or circumstances; to keep apprised of such developments, or to review information on a wide range of occupational safety and health topics, you can visit OSHA’s website at www.osha.gov.
In order to ensure we maintain good communications and distribute OSHA related information as it becomes available, the Fort Worth and Dallas Area Offices will distribute the attached to our local Alliance partners as appropriate or as new information becomes available
