OSHA Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19
April 28, 2020


With so many discussions about getting people back to work in the recent days, California  and many other states are beginning to map out plans to ease restrictions and allow some businesses to reopen.

To help employers prepare their workers to return to the workplace, OSHA has provided some valuable information on identifying measures that employers can take to reduce worker exposure to COVID-19 and help reduce its spread:

  1. Ten Steps Workplaces Can Take to Reduce Risk of Exposure to Coronavirus: PDF
  2. Prevent Worker Exposure to CoronavirusPDF

Note:   EEOC website  states: “Employers should remember that guidance from public health authorities is likely to change as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves. Therefore, employers should continue to follow the most current information on maintaining workplace safety.”

You may also find the OSHA 35-page Guide in greater details available to download from their site:
