Our occupational health team is offering a new service to help employers respond to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Like many employers, WorkSTEPS has implemented a “work from home” policy in the interest of the health and safety of our staff, and in an abundance of caution in trying to “flatten the curve” of the spread of COVID-19.
Our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Ben Hoffman MD MPH, an epidemiologist who has spent his decades-long career as Medical Director and occupational health consultant for many multinational corporations, is providing semiweekly updates on how the Coronavirus is impacting employers and occupational health generally. You can view and sign up to receive those updates HERE.
As an employer in an “essential critical infrastructure” industry or sector, we know that many of your employees do not have the option or ability to work from home. You provide an essential service helping to keep our nation and our local communities operational during these uncertain times. For that, we thank you sincerely. In conversation with many of our employer clients to learn about challenges they face with COVID-19, we have learned that many are looking for resources and informed medical recommendations on how to appropriately respond to employees who test positive for the virus, demonstrate symptoms of the virus, or have been exposed to the virus.
In response to employer needs, Dr. Ben Hoffman and the WorkSTEPS occupational health team have created a hotline staffed by its physicians and nurses to provide expert medical recommendations on how to appropriately respond to employees impacted by the Coronavirus, and to offer employers consultation on occupational health issues related to COVID-19 in general.
Are you interested in accessing the hotline? Contact Jake Hoffman, Director of Sales & Marketing at 512-887-5441 or email@example.com to learn more, receive pricing, and register.
