As business owners consider reopening offices as the COVID-19 infection rate decreases, new questions about how to reduce risk in their reopening plans have surfaced.
DII recommends this portal for that provides solid information nationwide. https://www.nsc.org/saferOf particular interest in the context of vaccinations is the employer guidance with case studies from organizations such as McDonalds, United Airlines, Instacart and more. https://www.nsc.org/workplace/safety-topics/vaccines/employer-guidance This portal includes COVID-19 reopening resources for all industries and from a variety of states to help provide comprehensive reopening overview. Educational webinars and workplace safety posters are also available for free download.
One of the sections we found interesting was the employee survey section – premade surveys that can be used to communicate with your employees in three stages:
- Pandemic mode,
- Recovery mode, and
- “New Normal” mode.
These surveys are available at no cost to NSC members, and less than $50 for non-members. https://www.nsc.org/workplace/safety-topics/safer/employee-surveys
We will continue to provide resources to help reopen workplaces safely and reduce risk to both employees and employers alike. DII is your partner in COVID-19 recovery and we are actively researching best practices that we will share here in this blog.
