    The National Safety Council (NSC) today announced the roll-out of SAFER: Safe Actions for Employee Returns, a comprehensive, multi-faceted effort to guide employers through the process of safely resuming traditional work and operations now and in a post-pandemic environment.

    WorkCare is represented on the task force along with other health care professionals, Fortune 500 companies (including some WorkCare client companies), leading safety and trades organizations, and other subject matter experts. The task force will issue recommendations and develop guidance for employers, including small- and mid-size companies.

    According to the NSC, SAFER will:

    • Identify complexities with re-engaging the workforce, including contractors, by partnering with human resources, legal, labor, health care and workers’ compensation providers.
    • Develop general and sector-specific playbooks for America’s businesses to help them align worker safety with business objectives.

    “The manner in which employers bring people back to work will define our national response to the pandemic,” said Lorraine M. Martin, president and CEO of the NSC. “With SAFER, we are confident we’re bringing the best minds together to ensure Americans have the safest transition back to work so we can truly flatten the curve and enable people to live their fullest lives.”
