Businesses in retail, construction, manufacturing and package delivery should review recently issued industry-specific guidance from Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) as shelter-at-home orders expire and employees return to work. Following these recommendations from OSHA will help employers contain the COVID-19 pandemic while continuing to operate.
This webinar will focus on the workplace safety implications of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), including: voluntary and mandatory respirator use; illness recording/reporting issues; how to respond to employee or Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) complaints; the legal obligation (if any) to comply with guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); and health and safety issues that may arise when employees are working from home. The webinar will also address OSHA’s recently issued “Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19,” which defines risk categories and provides recommendations on controls and how to protect employees from COVID-19.
