Returning to work amidst COVID-19

| Featured News, OSHA, USF Safety Florida

As we move closer to the reopening of our economy, it is important that employers consider implementing processes to mitigate the effects of potential future health hazards in their workplaces in addition to CDC guidelines such as social distancing, updated PPE requirements, temperature checking and COVID-19 testing.

Maintaining a safe work environment for employees to return to not only is good for business, but also an obligation. The OSHA general duty clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act, requires that each employer furnish a workplace that is free from recognized hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm to its employees. As an employer, this makes staying informed essential, as guidance may change based upon evolving outbreak situations.
