On Monday, November 23, 2020, GBCA held a COVID-19 Safety Drill, an event for the Philadelphia region’s construction industry to stop and be reminded of the importance and value of COVID-19 safety protocols. Watch the COVID-19 Safety Drill below:


The event featured the following speakers:

  • John J. Dougherty, The Building Trades Council of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania & the Vicinity
  • Hoyt Emmons, Med-Tex Services, Inc.
  • Angela Hendrix, GBCA.

Following COVID-19 safety protocols helps remind our elected leaders that the construction industry is operating safely and should remain open during COVID-19 response.

As COVID-19 cases in the region rise, and with the holiday season underway, GBCA urges everyone in Philadelphia’s construction industry to follow COVID-19 safety protocols, particularly those set up by Pennsylvania’s Department of Health, respective County regulations, and the City of Philadelphia’s Department of Licenses and Inspections orders.
