As we all work through the COVID-19 crisis, OECS is in a unique position to help.  We are aware of the acute impact it has had on your business, your employees and their families.

In response, we’ve created the COVID-19 Help and Resource Center with up-to-date guidance and free tools to help your business operate in the current environment.  These resources will be continuously monitored given changing circumstances and directives coming out daily and sometimes hourly.  

Given guidance by OSHA and the CDC to prevent workplace exposure to COVID-19, manufacturers and construction companies, as well as many other businesses, will need to create and implement a safety preparedness plan to protect employees through the crisis.  

Whether you’re open or looking to re-open safely, this plan will help you mitigate risks in the workplace and prevent the virus from becoming an occupational hazard.  

To help create clarity around what is required, OECS has created a COVID-19 Safety Preparedness Plan which includes 4 key components:

  • Informative COVID-19 Presentation
  • Infectious Disease Preparedness and Response Plan with Checklist
  • Updated OECS COVID-19 Toolbox Talk with Training Roster
  • OECS COVID-19 Safety Associate Policy for Facility or Job Site Entry

While we are guiding our clients through this process, we are also extending a special offer to anyone who needs help completing their Safety Preparedness Plan.  

Please reach out (763-417-9599) to schedule a conversation about how to utilize these critical tools.  By using Zoom or other forms of virtual meeting technology, we have the ability to help during this crisis and are willing to offer 2 hours of professional safety assistance free of charge.

Just a reminder, as you work through creating and implementing your Safety Preparedness Plan, it’s essential to stay focused on your standard workplace safety policies and procedures.  A loss of focus could result in an avoidable injury at the worst possible time.

Stay focused on safety and let us know how we can help!
