US Department of Labor OSHA Poster to Help Reduce Workplace Exposure to COVID-19

Per the US Department of Labor, all workplaces with essential workers can follow these 10 steps to help protect employees:

    1.   Encourage workers to stay home if sick
    2.   Encourage respiratory etiquette, including covering coughs and sneezes
    3.   Provide a place to wash hands or alcohol-based hand sanitizers containing at least 60% alcohol
    4.   Limit worksite access to only essential workers, if possible
    5.   Establish flexible worksites (e.g., telecommuting) and flexible work hours (e.g., staggered shifts), if feasible
    6.   Discourage workers from using other workers’ phones, desks, or other work tools and equipment
    7.   Regularly clean and disinfect surfaces, equipment, and other elements of the work environment
    8.   Use Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved cleaning chemicals with label claims against the coronavirus
    9.   Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use of all cleaning and disinfection products
    10.   Encourage workers to report any safety and health concerns
