With nearly two-thirds of Manhattan office employees expected to return to the workplace by the end of September, the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY), SEIU 32BJ, the Realty Advisory Board on Labor Relations, Inc. (RAB), Local 94 International Union of Operating Engineers, and the Building Owners and Managers Association of Greater New York (BOMA) today issued new comprehensive guidelines to support the safe and healthy return of employees, residents and building service workers to office and residential buildings throughout New York City.

A summary of the guidelines can be found here.

As with previous building safety protocols released by this coalition of industry leaders over the past year, these guidelines will help building owners, managers and workers maintain appropriate health and safety protocols as the City’s economic recovery process moves forward.

The new guidelines are based on the latest recommendations of governmental and public health authorities, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the New York State and City Departments of Health.
