Operating Safely during COVID-19

Resources for a safe workplace

With COVID cases still climbing, the Chamber hopes to provide its members with the resources they need to operate safely and prevent workplace spread.

Access to PPE

The Oklahoma Department of Commerce partnered with the Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance, Greater Oklahoma City Chamber and the Tulsa Regional Chamber to provide a directory of companies supplying Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and other supplies needed for operating according to guidelines set forth by the CDC and in the Open Up & Recover Safely Plan. View the PPE Source Directory at okcommerce.gov/ppe-source-directory/.

If your company supplies PPE and other supplies and wishes to be included in this list, complete the supplier form. The Department of Commerce also has links to official guidance PDFs for a variety of particular business types at okcommerce.gov/covid19/ours-plan/.

Workplace safety

Employers should be familiar with OSHA’s response to workplace safety and coronavirus exposure. OSHA has issued guidance to cover three of the main questions: how should employers protect their employees; do employers have to record cases of COVID-19 on their injury logs; and how will OSHA conduct enforcement related to Coronavirus?
