In addition to providing businesses with guidance, tools and solutions to respond to the pandemic, NSC has been actively monitoring the collective efforts to keep Americans safe and healthy.
To share the broader implications of our national response to the COVID-19 pandemic, NSC will host the State of COVID-19 Response and Future World of Work Summit, presented by SAFER on Dec. 9. Aimed at helping businesses, policymakers and leaders, the Summit will explore topics including the efficacy of states’ shelter-in-place orders, how employers addressed this century’s biggest threat to workplace safety and the future world of work beyond the crisis.
