The Construction Task Force first defined Charge 1 and issued a report to the Commission. After that report, known as short term initiatives, the Task Force on Construction focused on long term initiative and divided into two categories: Workforce / Crafts Training Resilience and Construction Resilience.
As a sub-committee of the Construction Task Force sector, the Construction Resilience Committee has broken down initiatives as follows: Private Sector Initiatives, Public Sector Initiatives, Liability, Healthy Communities Initiatives, and Safety in the Construction Workplace.
The results of the above-referenced report will be published and sent to the Commission as recommendations from the Task Force on Construction on June 14, 2020.
