The COVID-19 pandemic has completely changed the way we view safety and health in the workplace. Especially the protocols that businesses have in place. Whether it's following social distancing measures, providing personal protective equipment (PPE), or conducting more rigorous cleaning and sanitization, businesses have made safety investments as a result.

To understand employees' and business leaders' concerns regarding COVID-19 safety protocols in the workplace at healthcare, manufacturing, retail, and transportation/warehousing businesses, Stericycle conducted a survey of 1,000 U.S. employees who currently work on-site as well as 450 U.S. business leaders at companies with more than 100 employees.

The Workplace Safety Survey highlights the perceptions that employees and business leaders have on COVID-19 safety investments and protocols, corporate responsibility, and concerns about employee safety. The following top five themes come to mind.

  1. COVID-19 Workplace Safety Investments
  2. COVID-19 Protocols and Training
  3. COVID-19 Compliance and Enforcement
  4. COVID-19 PPE Disposal at Work
  5. Flu and COVID-19 Prevention Efforts
