At the center of SAFER is a task force – comprised of large and small Fortune 500 companies, nonprofits, legal experts, public health professionals, medical professionals and government agency representatives – that makes recommendations based on best practices and proven workplace safety strategies. The task force delivers resources, such as guidebooks and checklists, to equip employers with the tools they need to protect workers during this time of uncertainty.
