Health Safety And Environmental Services
Protecting Workers. While there is no specific Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standard covering COVID-19, some OSHA requirements may apply to prevent occupational exposure to COVID-19. Measures for protecting workers from exposure to, and infection with, the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, depend on the type of work being performed and the exposure risk, including potential for interaction with infectious people and contamination of the work environment. Our team can help you assess the exposure and compliance with the relevant OSHA standards.
OSHA Recordkeeping Oversight. While OSHA Standard CFR 1904.5(b)(2)(viii) exempts recoding of the common cold and flu, it does not exempt COVID-19. Chubb Global Risk Advisors is tracking all alleged COVID-19 claims and carefully evaluating each claim on its merits. Claims where the infection is deemed to be work-related, as well as any work-related COVID-19 death or hospitalization must be reported to OSHA or an applicable state agency. Our experts can evaluate OSHA Logs and assess entries, work with adjusters / risk management team to resolve issues, calculate the specific lost time and restricted duty days, and update your OSHA Log as claims progress.
Environmental Decontamination. Environmental Decontamination Employers should evaluate whether work areas occupied by people suspected or known to have contracted the virus may have been contaminated, and thus should be decontaminated. Our team can assist with managing both the assessment and decontamination work, including helping to ensure worker safety during this process.
Business Continuity Planning/Mitigating the Impact of Business Interruption. Concern about the impact of COVID-19 on the global economy and supply chains is leading some companies to re-evaluate their business continuity plans. CGRA’s team of business continuity specialists is available to help you assess your organization’s exposures and ability to mitigate the impact of a disruptive event through business continuity planning. Our services include plan design, plan testing, and plan evaluation.
