Support Worker Safety with the Restart Risk Model™

As restrictions continue to lift and the expectation for swift COVID-19 testing and vaccinations rise, how can we provide our communities peace of mind as they transition to the new normal? The Restart Risk Model™ builds on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), offering a way for organizations to systematically evaluate the risk of disease transmission to their sites, operations and work areas. This risk-based framework will help organizations develop a plan to restart operations with enhanced working practices that address the new normal business environment after the pandemic.


Applying the Restart Risk Model 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 or operation. 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.
