New OSHA Guidance on Social Distancing

New OSHA alert: COVID-19 Guidance on Social Distancing at Work. Some tips for maintaining proper social distancing:
  • Encourage workers to stay home if they are sick. 
  • Isolate any worker who begins to exhibit symptoms until they can either go home or leave to seek medical care. 
  • Establish flexible worksites (e.g., telecommuting) and flexible work hours (e.g., staggered shifts), if feasible. 
  • In workplaces where customers are present, mark six-foot distances with floor tape in areas where lines form, use drive-through windows or curbside pickup, and limit the number of customers allowed at one time.
  • Stagger breaks and rearrange seating in common break areas to maintain physical distance between workers. 
  • Move or reposition workstations to create more distance, and install plexiglass partitions. 
  • Encourage workers to bring any safety and health concerns to the employers’ attention.
