When it comes to reopening your business after closing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it's important to have a plan.
As California gradually emerges from quarantine, businesses are beginning to reopen. Employers must reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 and provide a safe workplace for employees. Governor Newsom has released statewide guidance for employers to follow in order to reopen their businesses. Review the Resilience Roadmap for help with reopening your workplace safely.
Follow these guidelines to comply with reopening protocols
Step 1: Perform a detailed risk assessment of your workplace and implement a site-specific protection plan.
Step 2: Provide employee training on the COVID-19 safety protocols for your business.
Step 3: Set cleaning and disinfecting protocols and physical distancing guidelines.
Every California employer should have an Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) that contains a site-specific protection plan for preventing the spread of COVID-19. If you don’t have an IIPP or site-specific plan, you can use the State Fund IIPP Builder and State Fund Model Site-Specific Plan to create them.
