Many employers, if they are even aware of the requirement, are confused about how to draft, maintain and implement a plan in accordance with the Executive Order and the OSHA guidance.
Thankfully, the Workplace Law attorneys at Bodman have stepped in to help Chamber members prepare.
The Bodman team has provided four different templates for your use:
LOWER RISK EMPLOYER’S COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan
MEDIUM RISK EMPLOYER’S COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan
HIGH RISK EMPLOYER’S COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan
VERY HIGH RISK EMPLOYER’S] COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan
The templates should be tailored to the employer’s particular risk level, maintained and implemented. These templates are for information purposes only.
