Protecting people

With virtually the entire country practicing social distancing, most employees who can work from have been doing so. Working from home presents its own challenges, among which is ergonomics.

Another concern for employers is the impact the pandemic might have on drug supply chains, but there are steps employers can take to help ensure employees have access to critical medications.

Throughout the crisis, maintaining communications with employees can help them through this challenging time and demonstrate that leadership cares about their wellbeing.

Managing risk

In terms of risk, the first question many are asking is, “Will my insurance cover losses associated with COVID-19?” Coverage depends on several factors, primarily the type of coverage, the nature of the loss and the policy itself.

But managing risk goes far beyond insurance. For example, how to handle employees who were overseas who would like to return home. When to encourage colleagues to go back into the office. And how to help protect essential employees who must work during the crisis.
