NSC Guidelines to Reopen Businesses
The National Safety Council is partnering with dozens of organizations to work on safety mitigation strategies for the reopening of large and small businesses. The 501 non-profit public service organization created a program called SAFER: Safe Actions for Employee Returns. The program will work on a “multifaceted effort to help employers create safe workplaces in a post-coronavirus world.” It will create and publish guidelines for employers of all sizes and some industry-specific sectors. Task force members are as diverse as Dow, McDonald’s, NASA, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The National Safety Council was chartered by Congress in 1913 and is a good resource for workplace safety material - nsc.org.
