Safety should always be a top priority at work, especially during a pandemic when it is paramount for employers to continue following CDC safety guidelines and maintain a safe work environment. Below are a few ways you can help keep your employees and customers safe and healthy:
Set Up Safety Checkpoints and Hand Sanitizer Stations
By adding safety checkpoint stations and touch-less automatic hand sanitizers to your work place, you will be able to monitor your team’s health each day before they go into work with temperature and health assessments as well as creating more convenient areas to sanitize throughout the day.
Post Safety Guidelines and Symptom Checklists
Make CDC safety guidelines easy to follow by posting them around common areas, break rooms and work spaces to remind everyone to maintain 6 feet of social distance, frequently wash their hands, check for symptoms and wear a face covering when applicable.
Install Dividers to Isolate Work Spaces
Another way to ensure that safety guidelines are being followed, is to proactively separate employee work spaces into individual workstations with the use of privacy shields and dividers.
Distribute Safety Items to Your Team
Does your team have the necessary protective equipment? Make sure that your team has enough CDC-recommended masks or neck gaiters, safety goggles, hard hats and more to stay safe on the job.
Create More Office Space for Social Distancing
One way to create more space for social distancing is by reconfiguring your existing workspace. Another way is by adding office or classroom space, lunchrooms and more.
Add Self Cleaning Covers to Door Handles and Screens
Since the beginning of COVID-19, many businesses have installed self-cleaning covers on surfaces such as door handles, elevator buttons and touch screens. These covers eliminate contaminants on surface areas for up to 90 days, helping businesses stay clean longer.
