Avetta®, the leading global provider of supply chain risk management, announced today it will join the National Safety Council (NSC) task force to support the SAFER: Safe Actions for Employee Returns initiative – a comprehensive, multifaceted plan developed to guide employers through the process of safely resuming traditional work and operations now and in a post-pandemic environment.
In partnership with NSC, the nation’s leading nonprofit safety advocate, Avetta joins other Fortune 500 companies, leading safety organizations and public health professionals and experts to prioritize worker safety and navigate the changed work environment.
“With SAFER, we are bringing the best minds together to ensure Americans have the safest transition back to work possible,” said Lorraine M. Martin, president and CEO of the National Safety Council. “We are thrilled to have the partnership of Avetta to help us on our mission to make workplaces safer.”
Led by NSC, SAFER will issue recommendations and guidance for employers, including small and mid-size companies, across a variety of industries. From best practices to data-driven recommendations, the task force will provide employers the tools and solutions they need to take action in complicated and challenging times, with simple, practical implementation resources.
“As a company focused on coordinating best safety practices among companies with their suppliers and contractors, Avetta’s effort is now geared toward getting people back to work safely and at the right time,” said Arshad Matin, president and CEO of Avetta. “Joining this task force allows us to contribute the tools and solutions companies and workers can use to succeed in these complicated times, while also learning from global companies that are successfully operating safely in other parts of the world.”
