The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has released a poster outlining 10 steps to help reduce the risks of exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace. The steps outlined are:
Encourage workers to stay home if sick.
Encourage respiratory etiquette, including covering coughs and sneezes.
Provide a place to wash hands or alcohol-based hand rubs containing at least 60% alcohol.
Limit worksite access to only essential workers, if possible.
Establish flexible worksites and flexible work hours, if feasible.
Discourage workers from using other workers’ phones, desks, or other work tools and equipment.
Regularly clean and disinfect surfaces, equipment, and other elements of the work environment.
Use Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved cleaning chemicals with label claims against the coronavirus.
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use of all cleaning and disinfection products.
Encourage workers to report any safety and health concerns.
