What we'll go over:

People should be the first area of concern to address. Construction projects and construction offices are very dynamic environments with people that come in and out. The way this virus spreads makes it particularly challenging in these types of settings.

We first want to make sure we protect our staff and their families from exposure to this virus, we also want to make sure we address the risk of transmission to and from business partners.

Another critical risk to consider with this novel virus is the risk to your business, there are many causes for potential disruptions to keep in mind.

A wake up call.

Who would have thought 6 months ago that human contact would be a risk we would need to manage?

Construction is fraught with risks and the notion of managing these risks isn’t foreign to any construction professional. This one is different though. The Coronavirus hits society at its core by creating this social distancing shift.

No more high fives, handshakes or hugs. There is much speculation about the right steps that should have been taken or what to do moving forward and as construction professionals, we need to look ahead. It is not the time to worry, rather the time to act.

A recent podcast I listened to from Jason Jennings talked about worry as being like paying interest on a debt you don’t owe. I thought this was a very accurate statement and looking at what has happened over the past few weeks it is clear that keeping a cool head has to be a top priority. Indeed, thinking through all the different issues and risks associated with this virus could feel overwhelming.

Where does the risk exist?

If you are spending too much time listening to the various news cycle it could feel like getting out of bed or stepping out of your home is irresponsible. The fact of the matter is that we have always lived with an element of risk before the quarantine started I drove about 30 miles a day on I-4 through downtown Orlando, now that’s risky!

So what’s different here? Simply put it is the unknown, the what-ifs…

It seems that anywhere you go and anything you do can create exposure. Basically speaking the risk associated with this Coronavirus is everywhere so focus on what you can control and break it into controllable categories.

Focusing on what you can control.

As you assess these different activities and locations to consider you need to implement procedures. Why do you need to do this?

Because there is a liability to consider, the risk of transmission of COVID19 to and from others should not be taken lightly. There is little doubt that many attorneys are ready to jump on this opportunity…

Right now we all have a choice to make, are we going to complain about the things we can control or take the steps to protect our employees, their families, our business partners as well as our business. There is reason to believe that we can all find value in this challenge, it is up to us to capture the lessons we can and turn them into assets for the future.

Here is an example of a lesson I have learned: It is possible for me to work from home and be productive, I would even argue that I am being more productive in many ways.

It is also possible for my team to work from home and be productive since RedTeam is 100% cloud-based I intend to used this validation as a way to offer more flexibility to my team which will help us continue to retain and recruit top talent. So what about you? What will you do with this new-found knowledge?
