Creating a Return to Work Action Plan

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has interrupted many businesses across the country. While it is unclear how long COVID-19 will continue to affect organizations, many employers are looking to the future for when employees begin returning to work.

A return to normalcy won’t be like flipping a switch, but rather a gradual and consistent effort. In preparation for reopening your business and asking employees to come back to work, it’s imperative that your company thoughtfully constructs a work action plan for its employees to keep everyone healthy and safe.

We at Horst Insurance want to help equip businesses to safely reopen by providing a guide for creating a return to work action plan. This guide follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and OSHA guidelines designed to keep employers, employees, and customers safe.
