Safety Considerations for PEO and Small Business Work Environments
Updated: Oct 13, 2021
As life slowly turns back to normal, employers must decide whether to uphold changes that have been implemented in the workplace this past year or revert back to the previous ways of doing business.
James Buscarini, a blog writer for PEO Compass, recently compiled a list of ten considerations each employer should make when deciding upon how to run their business in a post-covid world.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach
Communication is not a one-way street
Proper work-life balance impacts mental health
Play by the same set of rules – that means everybody
Be mindful of each other’s responsibilities
Tap into available consultative and training resources
Put safety policies front and center
Make health and safety part of your organization’s culture
Do they understand your expectations
Get creative about getting input from office and field staff
This list and its recommendations are something each employer should consider when evaluating their business, employees, and themselves.
COVID has affected everyone in different ways; perhaps the most positive thing we can take from it is learning and showing compassion for others, especially in the workplace.
