COVID-19 Construction Site Safety Plan & Daily Log

The City of Aspen has finalized a standardized COVID-19 Site Safety Plan and submittal process, links to both are below. The standardized plan is extensive and demonstrates compliance with Pitkin County Health Orders. For all construction, the general contractor must fill out and submit the site safety document. The link below provides a fillable form for you to complete and submit. The contractor needs to be sure to complete all areas and insert site specific details to the standardized plan. All fields must be completed in order to be considered for approval. Different site safety plans will not be considered, so please complete and tailor the standardized plan to your project. Further instructions on how to submit the plan are below. If you have an active permit/construction site, please utilize the link for active permits. If you are in the process of applying for and/or have a permit under review, please utilize the link for permit review.

Subcontractors: Subcontractors on a project do NOT need to submit a plan, they will work under the plan submitted by the general contractor. 

Right-of-Way Permits: Contractors with right-of-way (ROW) permits NOT associated with a building permit are required to submit a safety plan as part of the permit submittal. If the ROW permit is associated with a building permit, they will work under the plan submitted by the general contractor. 

Non-permitted work: If your project does not require any permit, you are NOT required to submit a COVID Site Safety Plan. You are required to adhere to the Pitkin County Health Order requirements that can be found here. The contractor is required to have a Company Safety Plan on site during the work.

Please review the City of Aspen site safety plan requirements hereThese requirements need to be met in the creation of a Site Safety Plan and be implemented on-site during construction on a daily basis. A quick presentation on the basic job site requirements during COVID construction can be found here. This presentation will help general contractors put together site safety plans and ensure general contractors are knowledgeable to enforce field compliance on their projects.
