Risk Assessment

Companies looking to develop a plan for a safe, phased, return to onsite work find themselves dealing with a host of new—and unfamiliar—public-health guidelines. Those working onsite expect a plan to address not only workplace safety and health, but also fear and anxiety.

The Occupational Safety and Health Act (the “OSH Act”) requires employers to provide employees with a workplace free from “recognized hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm.” In light of that obligation, AppleCare assists employers in conducting COVID-19-specific risk assessments of their physical work environments under OSHA’s Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19.

In conducting the risk assessment, AppleCare assists employers in classifying exposure risk levels of the various roles in the workplace in accordance with the OSHA Guidance and take appropriate steps to protect workers with medium, high, and very high exposure risk jobs. AppleCare can assist the employer through all the steps of creating a safe working environment.

On-Site / Near Site Testing

Testing is a centerpiece of the Opening Up America Again framework. Many employers are considering options for testing and monitoring employees for the presence of the COVID-19 virus and/or for resulting antibodies, subject to substantially increased availability of tests.

Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), disability-related inquiries or medical examinations of current employees are limited to fitness for duty inquiries and other inquiries that are “job-related and consistent with business necessity,” including to determine if an employee will pose a “direct threat” of harm due to a medical condition. Under recent Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) and CDC guidance, the COVID-19 pandemic creates a sufficient risk to permit widespread testing based on the direct threat standard.

As a result, employers may ask certain disability-related inquiries and require certain medical testing during the COVID-19 pandemic without violating the ADA. However, knowing what test to choose and how to navigate these fit for duty evaluations can be tricky. AppleCare can take the guesswork out of these areas by being the health arm for your organization.
