10 Reopening Actions to Protect Your Employees

By Ted Knutson

The recommendations are based on best practices established by the Safe Actions for Employee Returns (SAFER) Task Force, created by the Council in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

SAFER is a group composed of representatives from over 50 Fortune 500 companies, nonprofits, legal experts, public health professionals, medical professionals and government agency representatives.

The members range from Amazon to Dow to the American Red Cross to the National Governors Association.

“Protecting our workers means coalescing around sets of safety principles and ensuring those principles guide our decisions,” says National Safety Council President and CEO Lorraine Martin.

Every employer needs to take 10 actions to reopen safely, per the National Safety Council.
