When the time comes that our community is able to re-open in accordance with New York State regulations, there will be a number of health and safety precautions that will be necessary for all employers, including nonprofit organizations, in the face of the COVID-19 crisis.
We are pleased to share the attached template for nonprofit employers to plan for bringing employees back to the workplace. Our trusted partner, Lisa Olszak Zumstein of Olszak Consulting, has developed this template that can be adapted by organizations for use in their workplace at no cost for use or adaptation.
The template includes safety guidance for return to work, a daily checklist for employees, designating key personnel, and printable materials from the New York Department of Health.
Please be advised that this should be considered a starting point for your organization and it should be adapted with the specific needs and concerns of your organization.
We also encourage you to consult the Centers for Disease Control, the New York Department of Health and Human Services (or your state department of health and human services), the Erie County Department of Health, and OSHA for updates to COVID-19 information and safety practices.
