(BIZTALKRADIO) SHOW 16: PROBLEM 4 - ENSURING EMPLOYEE HEALTH & SAFETY - WILLIAM EASTMAN
I appreciate your understand for missing last week. I, like you are running a company and sometimes operational issues override everything you have planned.
This week we are tackling another problem: Ensuring Employee Health & Safety. I am calling it #3 for no other reason than it is the third issue I plan to discuss. For some this will be #1, others lower on the list.
EPISODE 1: DO THE FACTS MATTER?
The first two episodes are going to be difficult to discuss because I'm not sure what position I should take, let alone you. Let me explain - the numbers, the official government numbers do not indicate this is a 'pandemic'! Here are some stats to start the conversation:
These are all facts that cannot be stated publicly but the truth that can help guide your decision making.
EPISODE 2: DEALING WITH GOVERNMENT MANDATES
If the previous episode wasn't enough, now the government is imposing mandates on employers that are unconstitutional and therefore using the administrative state, OSHA, to enforce it. In fact the mandate doesn't require a vaccine (https://www.natlawreview.com/article/president-biden-signs-executive-order-announcing-plan-covid-19-vaccination).
That doesn't mean you should take on federal government, you don't have the deep pockets and multiple years to win a pyrrhic victory. All I can say is to check the latest news and talk with your lawyer or get one. Understand the risks of where your position. One question to ask your lawyer - how has the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) rule about lawsuits from employees from the impact of the vaccine.
EPISODE 3: WHAT YOU NEED TO DO INSIDE
Other than obvious decision on masks and social distancing, employ the 6S's of quality to bring a higher level of cleanliness and order in your facility.
EPISODE 4: HOW TO PROMOTE HEALTH & SAFETY TO ATTRACT NEW EMPLOYEES
Understand you are dealing with an emotional situation based on fear that is not rational. This is not an argument you can win rationally so deal with the emotion.
You run an ethical, clean, and high quality operation that is concerned about the health and safety of the the workforce.
