The Fair Labor Association created guidance to help factories mitigate the risks associated with COVID-19 and ensure the safety of workers. The document offers guidelines on how to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus in factories and dormitories through rigorous infectious disease management and the preparations required ahead of the reoccupation of buildings and production facilities after lockdown. The resource combines information gathered from reliable national and international agencies working on public health and occupational health and safety practices supplemented by the knowledge and experience of the FLA staff based on factory assessments around the world.
January 2021 Update: A compilation of frequently asked questions from companies and suppliers is now available. The new document provides general guidance based on information from reliable national and international agencies working on public health and occupational health and safety practices. The FAQ is designed to be a "living" resource with new answers added over time. Submit your questions about COVID-19 and workplace safety via email.
