COVID-19: OSHA Safety Tips for Social Distancing

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has published an alert with safety tips for social distancing at work.

Safety measures that employers can implement include:


  • Isolate any worker who begins to exhibit symptoms until they can either go home or leave to seek medical care;

  • Establish flexible worksites (e.g., telecommuting) and flexible work hours (e.g., staggered shifts), if feasible;

  • Stagger breaks and re-arrange seating in common break areas to maintain physical distance between workers

  • In workplaces where customers are present, mark six-foot distances with floor tape in areas where lines form, use drive-through windows or curbside pickup, and limit the number of customers allowed at one time;

  • Move or reposition workstations to create more distance, and install plexiglass partitions; and

  • Encourage workers to bring any safety and health concerns to the employer’s attention.
