The health and safety of workers is a top concern during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Everybody has the coronavirus on their minds. But no one else is thinking about the COVID-19 pandemic quite like safety and HR professionals, because, ultimately, you they have to figure out how to prevent the spread of the coronavirus among workers on job sites.
Current statistics in the US show us inching towards an average of 100k new infections every day.
What does that mean for businesses?
- Changing work environments and procedures
- Volatility in production demands and supply
- Increased pressure from off-the-job safety concerns
- Fewer resources for emergency response
Did you know that a recent insurance industry survey shows that major worker’s compensation and liability insurance organizations anticipate over $50 billion in COVID related lawsuits over the next 5-10 years against American businesses?
That could make COVID the largest legal liability threat to the US economy in over 100 years.
