Naturally, you’re nervous and excited because your State is moving rapidly to open up for business and relax COVID-19 lockdown restrictions … and you’re probably full of questions about how to safely and effectively handle Getting Back to Work.


If thoughts like these are running through your head, you’re not alone:

  • How can I ensure the health and safety of employees of my employees and make them feel confident about returning to work?
  • What safeguards do we need to consider before people entering the facilities, drive vehicles, or use equipment?
  • How can I track relevant and timely health information?
  • How do I stay compliant with federal, state, and local orders?
  • How do I track cleaning procedures, PPE, or other resources needed for a safe work environment?
  • If there has been an incident or new infection how do I track and notify employees and other relevant parties?
  • How can support employees in all work environments who could be continuing to work from home, or returning to the office?
  • How do I manage schedules, cubicles, or office space?
  • How do I track shifts to ensure we aren’t crowding elevators or other common work areas?
  • What is my plan for my team or business for returning to work?
