Our collective industry of consultants who provide professional services to the state of Missouri and the Department of Transportation must all practice the recommended CDC best practices on job sites to stay safe. Infrastructure improvements have been determined as essential work, however we must practice the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) best practices of social distancing or jeopardize the ability to remain working.
Contractors performing work for MoDOT have been asked, through a Job Special Provision COVID-19 Safety, to adjust their safety plans to accommodate the CDC guidelines and submit these revised safety plans as part of any awarded contracts. More information about this Job Special Provision can be found in MoDOT’s Online Plans Room https://www.modot.org/modot-online-plans-room - JSP Change – ALL CALLS.
MoDOT requests our consultants review their safety practices for their company and adjust those practices, if needed, to accommodate CDC guidelines on social distancing while working to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Having a plan is the first step. Please ensure your plan is communicated and implemented into your daily operations.
Thank you for your commitment to providing a safe transportation system during this difficult time.
