Covid-19 Safety Plan for Vendors

The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) has launched a new tool for our contractors to upload their COVID-19 workplace Safety Plan.

Please review the below and the attached instructions.

In accordance with NYS Governor’s Executive Order 202.34 and subsequent orders, construction, repair, and real estate services may proceed provided they comply with the Interim Guidance for Activities During The COVID-19 Public Health Emergency published by New York State (NYS Interim Guidance).

Prior to reopening, all businesses in New York, regardless of industry, must develop written safety plans outlining how the workplace will prevent the spread of COVID-19. This plan must be retained on the premises of the business and must be made available to the New York State Department of Health (DOH) or local health or safety authorities in the event of an inspection. All employers are responsible for having a safety plan with affirmation posted conspicuously and available for inspection.

The DOH has provided a safety plan template, available here, or businesses may create their own plans.

The safety plans should cover:

  1. physical distancing;
  2. protective equipment;
  3. hygiene and cleaning;
  4. communication of safety measures;
  5. screening processes; and
  6. contact tracing and disinfection of contaminated areas.


All vendors providing labor/services to NYCHA are required to upload the following information in NYCHA's Oracle iSupplier Vendor Portal. Vendors providing goods/materials to NYCHA are not required to provide these forms.
