Although the shelter in place order continues, you may be thinking ahead to when you can reopen your business. There are many preparations you must take before bringing employees back to the workplace and opening your doors to the public—including having a COVID-19 Prevention Program for your business. All employers are responsible for taking action to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 and providing a safe workplace for their employees. Governor Newsom released statewide guidance for employers to follow in order to reopen their businesses, including a playbook for all industries, and additional resources for some business sectors. Review the Resilience Roadmap for help with reopening your workplace safely. 

Follow these guidelines to comply with reopening protocols

Step 1: Perform a detailed risk assessment of your workplace.

Step 2: Create and implement a site-specific protection plan.

Step 3: Put controls in place and train your employees.
