Workplace Safety Toolkit

As more people return to their traditional workplace environments after the surge of the COVID-19 pandemic, OU Health is offering guidance and a Back-to-Work Toolkit to assist businesses as their employees enter a “new normal.” OU Health's Back-to-Work Toolkit contains a variety of evidence-based resources to keep employees as safe as possible from infection with the virus.

General Workplace Recommendations

  • Practice physical distancing, including limiting the number of people in elevators.
  • Wear face masks at all times unless seated with appropriate physical distance from others.
  • Wash hands frequently and thoroughly, or use hand sanitizer.
  • Clean and sanitize surfaces regularly, including door handles, light switches and other high-touch surfaces.
  • Stay home and call a medical professional if you’re sick.
  • For shared spaces, such as break rooms and conference rooms, advice includes:

    • Wear masks while in shared spaces.
    • Consider staggering employee shifts to reduce the number of people sharing common areas.
    • Create a central location for food or other vendor deliveries.
    • Keep plenty of hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes and other cleaning products on hand.

Meeting Safely

  • Hold virtual meetings if possible.
  • Meetings should have 10 or fewer people physically present.
  • Make sure the room is well-ventilated.
  • Remind employees to avoid shaking hands.
  • For in-person meetings, keep a record of the names and contact information of all participants for at least one month. If a participant becomes ill with COVID-19, this will help public health authorities trace people who may have been exposed.
