A CHECKLIST FOR EMPLOYERS ON POLICIES FOR RETURNING TO WORK
As businesses are reopening statewide, employee safety is top of mind for everyone. It’s crucial for businesses to have appropriate practices in place to help prevent employees from contracting COVID-19 at the workplace. Both OSHA and the CDC have provided guidance on how to approach returning to work but we know that putting guidelines into practice can be a challenge.
Whether you have already re-opened your facility or if you are working on a plan for your employees to return, you should consider the items on this checklist. If you need help drafting, reviewing or implementing your policies, please contact Neil Brunetz.
☐ Who is going to come into the office and when?
☐ How do you protect your employees before they enter the office?
☐ How do you screen/monitor for potential exposure and symptoms of COVID-19?
☐ How do you protect your employees in your office space?
☐ How do you deal with outside vendors and deliveries?
☐ How do you handle lunch, breaks, and restrooms?
☐ How do you handle someone who exhibits symptoms in your office?
☐ What information are you keeping about potential exposure to COVID-19?
