Industry Coalition Draws Up Guidelines for Safe Return to Offices

The Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY), 32BJ SEIU, Realty Advisory Board on Labor Relations, Inc., (RAB), Local 94 International Union of Operating Engineers, AFL-CIO, and the Building Owners & Managers Association of Greater New York (BOMA-NY) issued guidelines to facilitate the safe and healthy reentry into commercial office buildings.

These guidelines follow New York State’s issuance of commercial building safety practices and will help owners, managers and building workers comply with state guidance, the coalition said.

The coalition created the comprehensive Best Practices for Reentering Commercial Buildings in Phase Two of New York Forward to help ensure protection of office tenants, building service workers, visitors and the general public as the New York City economy begins to restart economic activity. The guidelines are intended to equip building owners and property managers with concrete strategies based on the recommendations of governmental and public health authorities.
