Safety is paramount for organizations, especially in the construction industry. Safety starts with the organization, but needs to be implemented by it's employees. This is why a commitment to safety is required on both sides if there is to be any success.
An eSafetyLine subscription is a great way to start a safety initiative if you don't have one already, and if you do, it's a great tool to expand safety as well!
Safety is a "proactive" responsibility, not reactive. You don't want to consider it after an incident!

NYS Hero Act Info
NY Health and Essential Rights Act (HERO Act) Signed by Gov. Cuomo May 5, 2021 amends the New York Labor Law (NYLL) in relation to preventing occupational exposure to an airborne infectious disease.
Requirements of the HERO Act Plan:
Section 1: Employers need to develop and implement an airborne infectious disease exposure prevention plan. The Act also requires NYS to develop a sample plan in both English and Spanish that employers can use. Section 1 becomes effective 30 days after July7, 2021 when NYS issued its template for an exposure plan.
Section 2: Requires employers give employees the opportunity to create a joint employer and employee committee to address workplace health and safety issues.
This plan must be implemented ONLY when an airborne infectious disease is designated by the New York State Commissioner of Health as a highly contagious communicable disease that presents a serious risk of harm to the public health. As of this date no designation is in effect, therefore, the plan needs to be completed, maintained and ready to use if and when an emergency designation is announced by NYS.
The amendments provide that section 1 of the Act will take effect on the 60th day after enactment (i.e., July 5, 2021) rather than on June 4, 2021. Section 2 (permitting the creation of a workplace safety committee) will still take effect on November 1, 2021.
Exposure Plan Template: It is a fillable PDF and needs to be completed and kept on file by every employer in NYS.
