Post-COVID

Are you ready for Post-COVID? Better questions, will there ever be a "Post COVID"? We certainly hope so and expect that to be the case. Getting back to "normal" or the "new normal" has already started in many states.

We know that relaxing restrictions will likely cause a resurgence in COVID-19 cases, but we can't stay shut down forever. So, if you haven't already, you should develop a plan to reopen your business.

The U.S. Federal Government has guidelines detailing a 3-phased approach to relaxing restrictions. Check it out! View guidelines 



If you're looking for a quick and easy way to document COVID self-assessments, look no further!

Our Scan App allows you or your employees to easily document COVID assessments and record the results in a completely paperless format.  Check it out


  
Checklist Updates

Several updates have been made to our checklists over the past few weeks with more coming in July. Here's a summary:

Added Heat Illness Prevention category to our EM 385 checklist

Added Pile Driving to Construction 1926 Checklist

Updated DOT checklist to include Electronic Logging Devices

Adding new category called Working Over Water to all of our construction checklists

We're planning to release two new checklists in July, one for ISO 45001 Audits and another for MSHA Underground Mines.

 Sun Protection

There are an estimated 9,500 Americans diagnosed with skin cancer each day. It’s hard to understand why more employers aren’t taking steps to minimize this preventable exposure.



The use of protective clothing and sunscreen, and seeking shade during peak sun hours should be our focus as we head into the summer months… Let’s give this health exposure the attention it deserves!

Check out the American Academy of Dermatology Survey for more information.


Heat Illness Prevention

With the summer months upon us, this is a good time to remind your inspectors to use our Heat Illness Prevention category when doing their inspections.

 

The checklist is modeled after the California OSHA Title 8 Code of Federal Regulations and is very comprehensive. Some of the inspection questions include:

+ Air temperature monitored?
+ Drinking water provided?
+ Shade provided?
+ Rest breaks encouraged?
+ Heat illness training provided?
+ Appropriate clothing worn?
