The following are a collection of statements gathered from CDC and OSHA concerning best practices. Although OSHA has not defined a list specific for manufacturing as of yet, these statements were selected from what OSHA has indicated for similar industries.
- Implement basic infection prevention measures.
- Ensure proper facility cleaning.
- Practice self-distancing.
- Consider implementing staggered shifts.
- Make disinfecting wipes, soap, and hand sanitizer readily available throughout manufacturing facilities.
- CDC and OSHA recommend using a combination of standard precautions, contact precautions, airborne precautions, and eye protection (e.g., goggles or face shields) to protect workers with exposure to the virus.
- Use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) include: gloves, goggles, face shields, face masks, and respiratory protection, when appropriate. During an outbreak of an infectious disease, such as COVID-19, recommendations for PPE specific to occupations or job tasks may change depending on geographic location, updated risk assessments for workers, and information on PPE effectiveness in preventing the spread of COVID-19. Employers should check the OSHA and CDC websites regularly for updates.
