OSHA Releases Poster for Reducing Risk of Coronavirus Exposure in the Workplace
On April 6, 2020, the U.S. Department of Labor published a new OSHA poster aimed at reducing workplace exposure to the coronavirus. The poster lists steps all workplaces can take to reduce the risk of exposure to coronavirus.
The poster highlights 10 infection prevention measures every employer can implement to protect workers’ safety and health during the coronavirus pandemic. Safety measures include encouraging sick workers to stay home; establishing flexible worksites and staggered work shifts; discouraging workers from using other workers’ phones, desks and other work equipment; and using Environmental Protection Agency-approved cleaning chemicals with label claims against the coronavirus.
More information and the poste is available on the OSHA website at https://www.osha.gov/news/newsreleases/national/04062020 .
