According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), most American workers will likely experience low (caution) or medium exposure risk levels at their job or place of employment. Businesses and employers can help prevent and slow the spread of COVID-19 – employers should plan to respond in a flexible way to varying levels of disease transmission in the community and be prepared to refine response places as needed.
We’ve put together a downloadable response protocol for your business. Download, fill with your company name, print, and post in appropriate locations for employees to safely access.

CDC Essential Business safe practices for potential or confirmed exposures
- If NIOSH approved respirators are being used mandated for certain tasks, an OSHA compliant Respiratory Protection Program should be implemented.
- Depending on the essential activity being performed, some exposures will require additional programs to be put into place such as an Aerosol Transmissible Disease (ATD) program for health care related businesses. The CDC has detailed guidance for other industries such as hospitals, airlines, education, transit, agricultural, community and faith organizations, etc.
