Health & Safety Plans
May 2020: All businesses are required to prepare a COVID-19 Re-Opening Health and Safety Plan and have it available for review at the time of re-opening. In developing their plans, employers must also consider the implications of the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
Businesses that are re-opening are also required to affirm that they are in compliance with NYS Health & Safety Guidelines at the time of re-opening. For more information on how to complete this affirmation, watch ACCORD’s instructional video: A How-To Guide on Affirming your Business is in Compliance with New York State Health and Safety Guidelines, and Completing your Safety Plan for Your Business to Reopen
March 2020: New York State has designated certain businesses and activities as essential under Executive Order 202.6 with guidance for determining whether a business is essential here. Those designated as essential must still comply with other guidance and/or directives. Those exempt from the reductions include state and local governments, including municipalities, authorities and school districts; however they must still comply with other provisions.
