As every day brings new developments in the fight against COVID-19, a plan-ahead team can help a business adapt and react quickly, and ultimately be better positioned to protect both employee’s and customer’s health and safety. In the article “Reopening safely: Sample practices from essential businesses” provides insight to how certain ‘essential’ businesses kept their doors open and operated at full capacity, including, hospitals, grocery stores, and other establishments that remained open during the COVID-19 pandemic, their operating protocols can offer ideas for other businesses preparing to welcome back employees and customers. Furthermore, companies must implement safety measures across the full range of activities associated with their operations, including activities outside of the work environment.
Businesses will need to identify pre-entry procedures and regulations, transportation to and from workplaces, use of open spaces and post-infection care. Business leaders are provided with guidance on the level of risk associated with work-related activities and the types of security measures to be implemented, including pre-entry, travel, shared spaces at work, and post-infection measures.
