Clear Law Institute helps employers:
The New York HERO Act, which was enacted in May 2021, requires New York employers to develop a written Airborne Infectious Disease Exposure Plan (“Plan”). The Plan must address safe work practices and controls the employer anticipates implementing upon the future designation of any airborne infectious disease. Employers were supposed to create and distribute their HERO Act plans to all employees in New York by September 4, 2021.
In addition to the new HERO Act requirements, OSHA continues to instruct employers to provide workplace training on COVID-19. As a result, we recommend that New York employers continue to provide Clear Law Institute’s online COVID-19 Safe Workplace course, even though the New York State Forward Reopening Guidelines were lifted in June 2021.
Our Compliance Advisory Team helps employers:
Develop a New York HERO Act Plan.
Update existing HERO Act plans in preparation for future designations.
Provide any verbal training required under the HERO Act via Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or other video-conferencing software. These training sessions can be recorded and uploaded onto our Learning Management System (“LMS”) or the employer’s LMS so employees can view the live or recorded session.
