Task Force Launched to Help With Safe Return to Work Post-pandemic

The group's program is called ‌"Safe Actions for Employee Returns"

With chatter of a potential reopening of many businesses in the coming days—for example, Georgia began to allow some businesses to reopen Friday—businesses need strategies to understand how to revive their workplaces while keeping employees safe.

Fortunately, the National Safety Council is ready to help. Recently, the group announced a program called SAFER: Safe Actions for Employee Returns, which is bringing together a task force that will help identify issues that arise in bringing employees back to the workforce, along with strategies for individual sectors to focus on safety after returning to work. The task force includes a number of associations and large companies, including the American Trucking Associations (ATA), the American Chemistry Council (ACC), the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA), NASA, Walgreens and McDonald’s.

This careful approach matters, said NSC President and CEO Lorraine M. Martin, because it could help prevent unnecessary illness from COVID-19.
