As COVID-19-related lawsuits and penalties continue to affect employers across the country, employers are searching for effective strategies to manage legal risk and improve employee health, without compromising the health of the business. Absent interference by the Department of Labor or another auditing agency, employers’ voluntary self-audits of their safety and health practices and policies provide important risk management protections. There is, however, “no free lunch.” Strategic planning must guide the audit process to avoid creating additional legal (and reputational) liability.
From this program, attendees may expect the following practical and immediately applicable learning outcomes:
• Strategies for conducting voluntary workplace health and safety audits related to COVID-19 policies and practices.
• Strategies to maximize the value of an audit and avoid opening liability doors.
• Best practices for minimizing liability related to COVID-19.
