COVID-19 Risk Assessment and Model for Worker Safety
Transitioning to the New Normal - Safely and Quickly
Applying this framework, we will analyze sites to understand which work areas and activities present the greatest risk to workforce safety based on several network and transmission risk factors. We have simplified this by developing industry-specific templates that can be customized to any business. The analysis begins with sitewide risk factors, then builds a site-specific profile that identifies unique work areas. Risk factors for each area are scored against area-specific benchmarks and recommended ranges.
Refer to FEMA's Questions to Consider When Reconstituting Operations to understand how our model can help you address the challenge of resuming operations while protecting the well-being and safety of employees and communities.
Through this process, we can systematically analyze which sites and areas present the highest risk for transmission and from which transmission modes, resulting in a prioritized list of recommended controls to implement in high risk areas. We will also identify the policies, procedures, and training required to ensure the new controls are implemented effectively in addition to metrics to monitor the situation and adapt as necessary.
The Restart Risk Model™ is a practical and systematic process to develop and manage a plan to safely bring workers back to sites and facilities:
- Based on guidance from CDC, OSHA, WHO and EU
- Applies engineering principles to risk management
- Includes dashboard with KPIs to manage, monitor and adapt to emerging conditions and guidance
