Work from Home/Return to Work Employee Life Safety

July 21, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Work From Home (WFH): Real smart during a potentially-lethal pandemic. But, you, as the employer, are still solely responsible for employee safety working from home. Almost no employer has addressed their WFH safety issues for employees. This leaves senior management and directors wide-open to legal exposure for employee injury and death working from home.

Return to Work (RTW): All 50 State Fire Codes and OSHA regulations require every employer who has reconfigured their workplace to train all employees re: your Emergency Action Plan. “Reconfigure” is defined in very small terms. Most employers tasked with creating and maintaining emergency plans are confused or overwhelmed regarding those standards—especially in a post-virus world.

Learn what laws, regulations and standards apply to your emergency planning, training and exercises re: RTW. 2,600 lawsuits have already been lodged against employers. Learn what a lawsuit will do to you if you don’t create a plan to standardize. Learn the common mistakes organizations make in creating their plans today. Is your plan compliant?

This webinar is sponsored by the ASIS Fire and Life Safety Community.
