NEENAH, WI – March 13, 2020
To help businesses of all sizes manage the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, J.J. Keller & Associates, Inc. — the nation’s leader in safety and workplace regulatory compliance — has released an informative whitepaper to help employers:
- Assess risk
- Implement preemptive measures
- Ensure compliance with OSHA standards
- Navigate employee rights in regard to viral outbreaks
“Outbreaks like these require a multi-faceted approach,” explained Terri Dougherty, a human resources editor for J.J. Keller. “An organization’s response to this crisis doesn’t just need to address business operations and employee concerns — it must also include safety considerations and steps that will stem the severity of the outbreak.”
Senior Environmental Health & Safety Editor Travis Rhoden agreed with Dougherty’s assessment.
“Your company’s response needs to take into account communicating with your employees regularly and openly. What are the related policies and procedures, safety concerns, human resources matters like FMLA and privacy, and supply and production issues for your business? This new resource touches on all of these topics and more, providing employers with the thorough thought process they need to adapt to this developing situation,” said Rhoden.
