As most companies plan to get back to work, the health and safety of your employees is sure to be top of mind. Catalyst Connection has partnered with MAC Safety to provide you with this valuable resource.

There’s no room for error in returning to work during the COVID-19 crisis. When health, safety, and lives are on the line,  it’s critical to get it right the first time. That’s why Catalyst Connection has compiled the information, resources, and strategies to guide our region’s manufacturers in moving forward in the safest ways possible.

In the era of COVID-19, returning to work is necessary, but the idea of how to create and sustain safe and healthy manufacturing environments is filled with apprehension and uncertainty. It doesn’t have to be.

Our Back-to-Work Playbook covers everything you need to know about creating and communicating effective measures and procedures that will prioritize the health, safety, and security of your manufacturing environment, workers, customers, and products. From personal protective gear protocols and sanitization processes to measures for maintaining social distancing in the workplace, gaining buy-in for new measures, and more, the Playbook will help you establish a sustainable and safe new normal during and after COVID-19
