The NJSBDC is kicking off its NJSBDC Cares Webinar Series with “Return to Work: Health & Safety Issues” presented by Mitchel Rosen, Ph.D. of Rutgers School of Public Health, Center for Public Workforce Development (CPHWD).
“Return to Work: Health & Safety Issues” is part one of a two-part series, which will focus on how small businesses can protect their workplaces, employees, and customers against potential health and safety threats, including the prevention of the transmission of COVID-19 and other communicable diseases. The main part of the training will address key issues that small businesses must address before opening their business. Small businesses should develop a COVID-19 Return to Work plan that addresses a range of issues. These include:
– COVID-19 Exposure Control Plan – Measures to Maintain Social Distancing – Engineering Controls – Work Practices – Enhanced Cleaning and Disinfection – Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Respiratory Protection – Sick Leave, Symptom Screening, and Employee Health – Exposures and Case Reporting – Measures to Protect Employee Mental Health and Physical Well-Being
