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.
