To reduce the impact of COVID-19 outbreak conditions on businesses, workers, customers, and the public, it is important that you create a plan for dealing with this unique situation.

Do you have a plan in place?

Yes

You are already ahead of the issue! However, planning for COVID-19 may involve updating plans to address the specific exposure risks, sources of exposure, routes of transmission, and other unique characteristics.

No

There’s no need to worry! You should prepare yourself and your workers for potentially worsening outbreak conditions. OSHA has developed some guidelines to create your plan.

To stay ahead of this pandemic, you will have to continuously plan and re-plan in order to address the challenges of COVID-19. This is important to keep your workers and their families safe.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has developed a COVID-19 Planning Guidance Booklet based on traditional infection prevention and industrial hygiene practices. It focuses on the need for employers to implement engineering, administrative, and work practice controls and personal protective equipment (PPE).

In an effort to provide guidance, we have included the 34 page, COVID-19 Planning Guidance Booklet. You should use this planning guidance to help identify risk levels in workplace settings and to determine any appropriate control measures to implement. Please click below to download.
