NYSIF Video & Guide for Safe Reopening

To help our customers get back to business, we have created a dynamic new video that takes you on a COVID-19 safety journey from developing a written health and safety plan to effectively implementing that plan as employees return to the workplace. Titled, Before You Reopen: A COVID-19 Safety Guide, the video is available on our homepage and YouTube.


For a deeper dive into what it takes for a business to reopen and remain open, we have also created a COVID-19 Safety Guide for New York Businesses, available at It provides a comprehensive explanation of the engineering controls necessary to prepare the workplace, as well as the administrative controls needed to prepare workers. It also includes industry-specific information for construction, restaurants, retail and more.


The COVID-19 Safety Guide and video script were produced by NYSIF Field Services. Please direct any customer-related COVID-19 safety concerns to the COVID-19 Safety Assistance hotline at 877-898-5349 or email us at Our safety experts can work directly with NYSIF customers to develop a customized plan to help keep you and your employees safe as you reopen for business.
