In years past, safety at work focused on personal safety – the use of harnesses, appropriate machine handling, etc. But now workers have far more to worry about when they come and go from the job site – perhaps elderly parents or a child or spouse with a compromised immune system, and the degree to which an employer will provide for their safety through hygiene rules can make the difference for whether they stay on the job or leave in order to protect the ones they love. ...
