OSHA guidelines for safe workplaces

By Joseph P. Kelly

If your company is still open and operating as an “essential business” under a stay-at-home order, it’s critical that you follow all the social distancing practices set forth in such stay-at-home order and otherwise provided by the CDC.

However, those orders tend to be somewhat general. To that end, OSHA has issued a detailed guidance for those employers still open – “Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19”.

For essential businesses with traveling employees, note that the OSHA guidelines contain some specific advisories regarding such travel.

Bottom line for essential businesses — do ALL that you can to keep your workplace safe!
