Working Safely

Inspect Workplaces for Covid-19 Safety Precautions and Publish Status Reports for Returning Workers

Don't tell workers to return to work, view the working conditions, then go home if they feel "uncomfortable" with COVID-19 safety precautions (and potentially infect those they live with upon their return home). Instead, inspect workplaces weekly or even daily, publish detailed, public-facing safety status reports, and allow workers to comment on the working conditions they see - by job/production area. Provide privacy protections for workers who comment on the working conditions they see - because they may be fired for contradicting their employer's safety statements. If the employer claims that it fired a worker who expressed safety concerns because the worker allegedly did something ELSE wrong, carefully investigate the employer's claims. Publish statistics about worker safety complaints which correlate with layoffs or firings.
