OSHA publishes guidance for employers on how to establish a safe workplace in the coronavirus pandemic

As essential industries struggle to stay open and as more and more companies look to reopen, OSHA has published a “Guidance for Preparing Workplaces for Coronavirus.” The guidance provides specific recommendations for workplace structuring, cleaning, protective equipment, etc., broken down for different kinds of jobs, based on their risk of exposure to coronavirus. Employers will want to review the guidance with their safety professionals. 

Employers are reminded to check any state and local requirements as well for their workplaces. For example, Cal-OSHA has published its own requirements. Colorado has published a page containing its extensive suggestions; Pinnacol has offered its own suggestions here.
