As many businesses are evaluating re-opening their business or opening their business back up to the public, that doesn’t necessarily mean COVID-19 is no longer a threat to your operations. What’s more, some businesses may have greater COVID-19 exposures than others, underscoring the importance of performing a thorough risk assessment before reopening. Prior to conducting a risk assessment, it’s important to review guidance from OSHA, state and local agencies, industry associations as well as your local health department.
Our sample Return to Work Action Plan serves as an example plan for businesses to use as a template when preparing their own plans for reopening their business following the coronavirus pandemic. It does not account for state, local or industry-specific guidance related to COVID-19, but follows the guidance laid out by the CDC and OSHA that is designed to keep employers, employees and customers safe.
Note: This plan will need to be customized prior to use.
This presentation covers return to work considerations and includes additional resource recommendations. Covering the issues and action steps business leaders may wish to consider, while navigating through this new COVID-19 environment.
