27 May Keeping Your Workplace Safe and Healthy
As you operate under health restrictions or prepare to reopen your business, your employees’ and customers’ safety must be your priority. Follow these tips to make sure that as you keep up with your orders during the novel coronavirus pandemic, you also keep yourself and the people you interact with healthy.
Sanitize Your Workplace Regularly
Since COVID-19 can spread both through the air and through contact with infected surfaces, you must regularly sanitize all items in your workplace. The exact number of times a day varies depending on how many people come into your building, but at least twice a shift, you should thoroughly clean everything that people touch. Use disinfectant wipes or use a spray bottle of cleaner to remove germs from machines, door handles and desks. When you receive shipments of supplies such as couplings Ontario, clean both the items and their packaging.
Wear Face Masks
Face masks are essential to slowing the spread of COVID-19. You and your employees must wear them at all times, even during long shifts, and no customers should enter your building without one. If possible, wear reusable fabric masks so that the disposable ones are available to medical professionals. Email your employees to let them know your face mask policy, and post reminders on the door of your building and on the walls. While masks are uncomfortable, they are a small price to pay for your health.
Maintain Distance From Each Other
People use the phrase “social distancing” constantly, but many are still unsure of what this term means. To protect yourselves, stay at least six feet away from each other, even if you are wearing masks. This acts as a second safeguard against accidental exposure to the virus.
You may be sick of hearing about all the ways to keep yourself safe during the pandemic, but it is crucial that you follow these steps to protect your health and that of your employees.
