Rosemont, Ill.During the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the National Roofing Contractors Association is offering online resources to assist roofing contractors.
NRCA recognizes this is a time of uncertainty and wants to provide information and resources addressing various issues roofing contractors may be facing as they manage their businesses.
NRCA has added a new section to its website, www.nrca.net, to keep roofing contractors informed of important information in a timely manner. Resources include best practices for COVID-19 prevention; links to authoritative information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization, and Occupational Safety and Health Administration; and legal resources, including key contract provisions, insurance resources, federal financial assistance, and employers’ and employees’ rights. Links to a recently developed NRCA toolbox talk, “Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Awareness,” and NRCA recommendations for managing COVID-19 also are available at www.nrca.net/covid-19-resources-for-roofing-contractors. Please refer to the website frequently to receive the latest information.
In addition, NRCA will send a survey to contractor members next week to gather specific feedback about how the crisis is affecting them. Please complete and return the survey so NRCA may better assist the industry.
Since 1886, the National Roofing Contractors Association has been the home for generations of entrepreneurial craftsmen and enterprises who shelter and protect America's families and businesses and each other. Our vision is the recognition of our members as professionals and to unite the industry to that purpose. NRCA is one of the construction industry's most respected trade associations and the voice of roofing professionals and leading authority in the roofing industry for information, education, technology and advocacy.
