As Job Developers and Employment Specialists, we can advocate for the safety and health of those who we support in the workplace. One method we created at Arc Broward was to conduct a worksite safety checklist to ensure that the worksite was safe for our participants. In the event that areas of concern were noted, we can provide technical assistance to the employer. The worksite evaluation checklist includes items such as safety related policy and procedures, PPE, sanitation and cleaning practices, screening practices, and allowance for social distancing.
