In May, we asked our readers whether they believed their companies had done enough to improve overall workplace safety in response to COVID-19.
As more people are going back to work, we wanted to review those results and see what it might mean for workers moving forward.
Opinions were split on both sides, with 59% saying appropriate precautions were in place, and 41% saying this wasn’t the case.
When asked for some specific ways companies were or were not improving overall workplace safety, comments included:
- “Letting us work from home.”
- “Not providing appropriate PPE.”
- “Required daily, weekly cleaning to be done with ZERO exceptions.”
In general, companies seem to be making good decisions when it comes to safety. However, if you don’t think your employer is following appropriate safety precautions, consider taking some safety steps of your own.
WebMD recommends the following:
- Wear a face mask.
- Stay 6 feet away from co-workers.
- Get plenty of sleep.
- Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds.
- Stay away from crowded conference rooms.
Stay safe out there!
