Fight the COVID-19 Virus Together!
Updated: Jul 26, 2020
During these uncertain times, it is essential to know how you and your business can do your best to adapt to these new times. Here are 5 simple ways you can start implementing safe practices to keep you and your employees safe.
1. Start Analyzing the "Hot-Spots" in Your Business
During the day, we are always touching things that we are unaware of. Some of these "Hotspots" include door handles, light switches, keyboards, mouses, copy machines/printers, AC adjusters, and other common area spots. These "Hotspots" could potentially be many people that came in contact with that surface.
These are the spots that you need to watch out for and have them disinfected regularly from day to day to help keep clean from COVID-19 and any other germs and viruses.
2. Ensure You and Your Employees Safety.
As we learn more about COVID-19, it is essential to use facial protection in your company to prevent the spread of COVID-19. By wearing essential protective gear such as masks and gloves, you can 1. most importantly, keep your employees safe, and 2. avoid any unprecedented interruptions such as an outbreak in your facility that will later cost you more by shutting down production and medical bills.
In addition to this, having hand sanitizing stations will help promote cleanliness throughout the company. It will be effortless for employees to stick their hand out and have them wiped clean to kill germs that they may have picked up.
Keeping these practices will help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and keep you and your business working happy and safe!
3. Have a Routine Disinfection Done
Check with your cleaning company to see what disinfection services they provide and the products they use to remove the CoV-2 virus, which could lead to COVID-19. Disinfection should be done at least 1-3 times a week to ensure that potential risk areas are sanitized. As having the whole office or working area be disinfected, the "hot-spots" that we mentioned before are the places you should be looking out for.
4. Help Stop the Spread
COVID-19 has exposed many businesses to adapt and operate under new norms and rules. Change is useful if you're company can adapt to modifications placed in today's age. Placing signs at the entrance of the building, which filters sick guests coming in. Another critical step to help stop the spread of COVID-19 is setting working stations 6 feet apart to prevent a spread within the company if someone were to test positive. To take even more initiative to fight COVID-19, promote remote working if possible. These steps can help reduce the risk of you and your employees contracting the virus.
5. Engage & Educate
As time passes, we are learning more about the COVID-19 virus, so you must keep your employees updated with this illness. Enforcing best practices such as washing hands and maintaining social distance helps reduce the spread of COVID-19. Along with this, it is essential to provide your employees with the proper gear and protection. Knowing the signs of symptoms is crucial as well. They are also undergoing the pandemic's stress, so be sure to check up on them and ask how they are handling everything.
