Seyfarth Synopsis: OSHA just released a new poster for employers that lists things that can be done to minimize workers’ risk of exposure to the coronavirus.

In its news release the Agency notes that “the poster highlights 10 infection prevention measures every employer can implement to protect workers’ safety and health during the coronavirus pandemic.”

The poster covers topics for safety measures that include encouraging sick workers to stay home, establishing flexible worksites and staggered work shifts, and discouraging workers from using other workers’ phones, desks and other work equipment.
