Inspection Restart of Some Construction Projects

On Friday, April 24, Governor Inslee issued a Proclamation implementing a “Phase 1 Restart” of construction in our state and on Wednesday, April 29 the Governor issued additional guidance on construction. This allows a phased restart of private construction activities that are low-risk and adhere to strict new COVID-19 Job Site Requirements.  The City of Seattle has issued the following guidelines for construction projects seeking inspections.

Please visit our Inspections website for instructions on how to request an inspection.

For complaints about construction activity not following the State’s COVID-19 Job Site Requirements:

  • All items minus numbers 28 and 30 are subject to enforcement action under L&I’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH). Workplace safety and health complaints may be submitted to the L&I Call Center: (1-800-423-7233) or via e-mail to [email protected].
  • General questions about how to comply with construction safety practices can be submitted to the state’s Business Response Center.
  • All other violations related to Proclamation 20-25 can be submitted at https://bit.ly/covid-compliance.
