As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to grip the country — even as vaccines come online and begin distribution — it’s important that companies of all sizes and in all industries stay prepared to protect their workers.

Because COVID-19 will still be with us for some time, it’s important that employers review OSHA’s existing standards, which cover pandemic-related safety risks. Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act’s general duty clause, all employers must provide a work environment that is “free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm.” OSHA has also released COVID-19-specific guidelines for limiting workers’ exposure to the coronavirus. If employers discover a hazard, they need to provide appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) in addition to standard safety gear, train employees on how to use it, and ensure that employees actually do use it.
Whether your facility is a manufacturing, assembly, distribution, services, or retail operation, having the necessary safety gear will be a critical part of your reopening strategy in order to provide employee and customer safety as well as support maximum productivity. From PPE to facility signage and marking products, we’re ready to help your business get back to work.
