In early April 2021, we asked 6,158 workplace leaders with responsibility for employee safety about their Return to Work planning—and what’s keeping them awake at night.
While 5.6% of those who wrote an answer said “Nothing,” 94.4% told us what’s keeping them awake.

Survey insight: training builds trust
• Training all employees in your COVID-19 safety protocols will improve their (and your) compliance, reduce risk, and build trust—their trust in you, and your trust in them.
• Training gives employees “social permission” to tell others to follow safety protocols (e.g., wear a mask correctly, maintain social distance, wash hands)—and report offenders. They trust you have their backs.
• Training teaches employees some colleagues may have health conditions that prohibit getting vaccinated, and may need to follow more strict protocols. These vulnerable employees trust they won’t be singled out.
• Other workplace emergencies—fire, medical events, workplace violence, active shooter, severe weather, toxic spills—remain foreseeable threats that require training. Employees want to trust you’re prepared, and trust they know how to respond.
