The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) announced on May 1, 2020, the availability of industry-specific guidelines and resources intended to help employers and employees get back to work safely.  Guidelines are available for at-home service providers, retail, restaurant, hair and nail salon, and construction industries, general office settings, gyms and workout facilities and rideshare, taxi, limo, and other passenger driver-for hire.  The guidelines include recommendations on ventilation, personal hygiene, physical distancing, and enhanced cleaning.  The guidelines and other resources are available to download on a new website, http://www.backtoworksafely.org.  Additionally, COVID-19 resources on personal protective equipment (PPE) and re-entry into the workplace hazards can be found at the AIHA Media Outreach Center.
 
AIHA notes that the Back-to-Work Safely initiative is the most recent addition to a public relations campaign to clarify misinformation on PPE, ventilation, and disinfection and to educate employers and consumers about the hazards associated with re-entry into the workplace.
