Returning to Work Guidelines: The New Normal

January 20th, 2021

Occupational Safety and Health Authority and Agency OSHA

The Occupational Safety & Health Act 2006 (OSHA) was followed closely by the Ministry of Health for the phased return to work post lockdown. OSHA’s position was clear “Safety & Health must come first when considering recommencing work in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak.” Their call was for employers to ensure the 4 P’s: People, Plant, Premises, Processes. “These parameters can tell us where to intervene to protect people and can help us to understand the effectiveness of these factors and improve their design.”

As such, a comprehensive document ‘Returning to Work Guidelines: The New Normal’ has been issued, covering all areas and concerns. With working from home a major part of the new working landscape, OSHA has also updated its guidance document relevant to that arrangement.

As always, OSHA’s guidelines incorporate global standards for these matters, while also following the advice issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Ministry of Health.
