While COVID-19 has turned everyone’s focus toward safety and health generally, it has forced US employers specifically to focus on the safety and health of their employees during an unprecedented time. Employers in the US have common law and statutory duties to ensure safe workplaces, but the COVID-19 pandemic has greatly disrupted many of the traditional means that employers have relied on for doing so, as well as greatly accelerated timeframes to adapt and adjust accordingly. The pandemic has also shone a glaring spotlight on a variety of workplace safety issues, including engineering, administrative and safety practice controls, personal protective equipment, respiratory protection, training, employee relations, hazard communication, recordkeeping, workers’ rights, and up-to-date policies and procedures.
Please join Peter Gould, Matthew Cooper, Cole Wist and Dr. Emily Haas of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) for a webinar on Tuesday, April 21 between 1 and 2 p.m. EDT – register here – as they discuss and provide guidance regarding what employers can and should be doing now to ensure employee safety and health remain in compliance with safety and health laws and requirements.Register for Free
