SAFER Guides Employers
SAFER 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.
In May 2020, NSC urged the Department of Labor to adopt the SAFER Framework as part of its Opening America’s Workplaces Again national online dialogue. In May 2021, NSC updated its SAFER Framework with the latest guidelines, including ventilation and filtration guidance, long-term implications of remote work and flexible schedules and vaccine policies.

Employers still play a vital role in promoting tried and true best practices to keep workers safe. This fact sheet includes a list of employer recommendations to follow.
