COVID-19 Response & Preparedness Plan

September 3, 2020

Updated October 15, 2020. Originally published May 26, 2020.

In her Executive Orders, Governor Whitmer laid out regulations for employers to provide a comprehensive written COVID-19 Response & Preparedness Plan. With the Michigan Supreme Court ruling on Governor Whitmer’s Executive Orders being deemed void, a series of new orders has since been issued from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and from MIOSHA.

SBAM has developed a COVID-19 preparedness and response template, consistent with recommendations in Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19, developed by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration. Producing a remote worker policy is a new requirement from MiOSHA. Version 7 of the SBAM template, available below, contains such a sample policy. SBAM has also created the complete Small Business Owner’s Guide to Remote Work, also available for download.

Download your COVID-19 Response & Preparedness Plan (It will come to you via email).

All businesses or operations that are permitted to require their employees to leave the homes or residences for work must have a plan be made readily available to employees, labor unions, and customers, whether via website, internal network, or by hard copy.

If you have any questions, email sbam@sbam.org
