Unsafe workplace claims based on COVID-19 related risks and exposures are on the rise as businesses reopen. These claims, which are based on a business’s failure to comply with health and safety standards or COVID-19 safety orders issued by local and state governments, can take many forms, including complaints to health and safety authorities and lawsuits seeking injunctions and damages for personal injury and wrongful death from employees, their families, and third parties who claim to have been exposed to COVID-19 on the business premises. In this week’s OSHA Hour, the speakers will address the various claims that businesses are facing in today’s environment based on workplace safety and provide best practices and strategies to prevent and defend these claims.
