First and foremost, returning to the workplace safely means developing a plan to protect employees and customers from new COVID-19 outbreaks. But as a small business owner, your return-to-work policies should also be designed to comply with new laws and guidelines, manage resources that may be in short supply, and build team morale. Failure to do so can mean a difficult and disruptive reopening. Or worse, an unsafe one.
So, where do you start? This checklist for employers can help you and your team successfully transition back to a work environment that’s safe — and successful.
Once it’s possible to reopen, employers face the challenge of keeping your employees — and even your customers — safe in your workplace. By preparing carefully and following guidance from the CDC, OSHA, and your state, your team can transition back into work life after COVID-19.
