HBA Partners with the U.S. Hispanic Contractors Association (USHCA) for Safety PSA

Much of the workforce in the construction industry is made up of contractors and trade workers.  Outreach and education to these individuals is critical to ensuring that construction can continue safely. Many of these workers are not members of the HBA, so the HBA has partnered with the U.S. Hispanic Contractors Association to connect with contractors and trade workers. Read More

The HBA’s Issue Fund issued $2,500 in matching funds challenge to Members in support of the USHCA’s outreach efforts to their members.  The HBA was proud to contribute $3,600 to the effort.

The USHCA filmed a PSA, available in English and Spanish, urging workers to adhere to safety protocols, including:

  • Frequent hand washing
  • Maintaining social distancing
  • Waring face coverings
  • Checking temperature before arriving for work
  • No hand shaking
  • No sharing water coolers

The video featured HBA Past President Luis Jauregui, who filmed the Spanish version of the PSA.  It aired on several television networks and was shared widely by industry associations and elected officials.
