Protecting the Essential Worker From COVID-19
The majority of states in the U.S. have ordered “Non-Essential” businesses to close in order to prevent further spread of the COVID-19 virus.
While that means many workers are being forced to stay at home, it also means that essential workers will be going into work amid serious health and safety risks. Read on to learn about who qualifies as an essential worker and what steps employers can take to keep them protected during this time.
Employer Responsibility For Coronavirus
OSHA offers guidance for employers to prepare workplaces for an influenza (flu) pandemic. While COVID-19 is not a flu, it is flu-like, as it causes an infectious respiratory illness.
OSHA guidance, if followed, will help to protect employees’ health as well as limit impacts on society and the economy.
Is Coronavirus a Recordable Illness?
COVID-19 news, questions, and confusion — caused by the ongoing pandemic of the novel coronavirus — are spreading almost as rapidly as the virus itself.
Many employers wonder whether or not they need to report cases of COVID-19 as recordable illnesses.
OSHA recently issued guidance to answer that question.
