State of COVID-19 Response and Future World of Work Summit

Presented by SAFER, a National Safety Council Initiative

Sponsored by:

Since the pandemic began, experts at the National Safety Council and its member and partner organizations have shared guidance, tools and solutions to address COVID-19. We have also been carefully monitoring and understanding the implications of our collective efforts to keep Americans safe and healthy. 

This virtual Summit, held Dec. 9, focused on our national response to the COVID-19 pandemic, today and in the future.

The Summit was aimed at helping businesses, policymakers and leaders take stock of where we stand and where we’re headed. It explored 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. The Summit also featured candid discussions, shared compelling reflections and analysis, and offered solutions for working together to keep workplaces safer across the country.

Leading up to and during the event, NSC released new reports addressing these topics and shared insights and actionable data to help chart our course ahead. Check out the program and list of speakers here.
