The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued a new poster addressing steps all workplaces can take to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19. “The poster highlights 10 infection prevention measures every employer can implement to protect workers’ safety and health during the coronavirus pandemic.” These measures include encouraging sick workers to stay home; establishing flexible worksites and staggered work shifts; discouraging workers from using other workers’ phones, desks and other work equipment; and using Environmental Protection Agency-approved cleaning chemicals.
