Safe Actions for Employee Returns (SAFER)

SAFER Guides Employers as U.S. Returns to Work

SAFER: Safe Actions for Employee Returns is a multifaceted, comprehensive effort aimed at helping employers prioritize safety as they return employees to traditional work environments and schedules in a post-quarantine world.

At the center of SAFER is a task force – comprised of large and small Fortune 500 companies, nonprofits, legal experts, public health professionals, medical professionals and government agency representatives – that makes recommendations based on best practices and proven workplace safety strategies.

NSC urged the Department of Labor to adopt the SAFER framework as part of its Opening America’s Workplaces Again national online dialogue. Anyone interested in assisting in this effort can email [email protected].

The following SAFER resources will equip employers with tools to protect workers during this time of uncertainty.
