COVID-19Safety and Health 

OSHA has been issuing safety alerts tailored to specific industries, to help employers protect workers from exposure to COVID-19 (coronavirus). The tips in the alerts aren’t particularly earth-shaking but nonetheless may be useful to review to ensure you’ve at least covered the basics in your safety efforts. So far, the alerts cover workers in manufacturing, retail, package delivery, and construction. OSHA anticipates adding more alerts on its COVID-19 publications page, where you may also download versions of each document in Spanish.
