Our last article addressed safety audits and emphasized the importance of a safety audit in light of COVID-19. The Occupational Health and Safety Act (OSHA) requires employers to provide a safe and healthy workplace free of recognized hazards, and in line with OSHA standards.
Employers of essential workers have been evolving in their workplace safety practices as COVID-19 has continued to assault the world, while traditional, non-essential employers are doing their best to navigate the best practices for getting employees back to a safe workplace. The amount of available resources can be overwhelming for employers to sift through, and even when things are in place, the guidelines and rules are continually changing.
