A healthy and safe workplace tax credit is needed to help businesses uphold cleanliness levels, protect employees, and give the public confidence when visiting facilities. According to the National Safety Council, employers have spent an average of US$5,208 per employee on various workplace safety practices since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Businesses and nonprofits already struggling financially should not have to decide between safety and going out of business.


The tax credit has bipartisan and bicameral support, and support from more than 50 trade associations representing a cross section of the economy. It would help businesses cover the cost of:

  • Cleaning, disinfecting, and air filtration solutions
  • Personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Physical distancing and safety technologies, plexiglass, and other modifications
  • Employee training and certification.
