Five Steps to Create a Safer Workplace for Returning Employees


Policymakers are focusing attention on restarting the U.S. economy. In an article from Aaron McCann, Christine Liu McLaughlin, and Sara Schenck at Godfrey & Kahn S.C., the authors provide a basic roadmap to help employers navigate workplace safety.

For instance, employers should identify key authorities and formalize a schedule to regularly review applicable guidance and assess COVID-19 related risks facing each employee. “Your risk analysis will dictate the degree to which you must implement various workplace controls to mitigate COVID-19 threats,” the authors write in “Five Steps to Create a Safer Workplace for Returning Employees During COVID-19.”
