The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has impacted businesses across a variety of industries, forcing them to rethink their daily operations to ensure the safety of their employees and the general public. This is no different for retail operations, where multiple workers may come into contact with innumerable customers visiting the store throughout the workday. In these instances, just one misstep can lead to the quick spread of COVID-19, jeopardizing the well-being of workers.
As more and more businesses begin to open over the coming weeks and months, we must put the health and safety of our clients, customers, and staff first. With this considered, we have created an action plan for Retail businesses responding to COVID-19. This plan, which is based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidance, highlights the responsibilities of managers and employees and outlines many of the steps that Retail businesses should take to address COVID-19.
