3 Steps For Employers When Thinking About Reopening Your Workplace
During these trying times, it is important to remember that reopening before your workplace is ready, can put you and employees at risk. It is always better to be safe than sorry.
As some provinces have begun the process of easing the shelter-in-place restrictions of nonessential businesses and their workers, it’s time to embrace the worlds new normal. This does not deem COVID-19 as a thing of the past, as it is still very present in our societies today. Rest assured, Sanitize Squad has provided some guidelines to help you protect yourself and your employees to minimize the spread of viruses like the one we are facing today.
Step #1: Workplace Preparation
This step includes ensuring that your business is ready to be reopened. Same steps would include allowing inspection crews to come in and sanitize/disinfect the entire workplace from floor to ceiling and everything in between. Your workplace has been sitting without any activity for months which brings the risk of germs and diseases on your surfaces, not to mention all the pests and moody damaged surfaces!

Step #2: Updating All Policies, Procedures and Protocol For Any & Everyone That Enters Your Workplace
It is important that everyone at your workplace is on the same page. As people do start to return to work, it is very easy to forget the rules that were put into place during the pandemic. Day-onto-day operations will definitely be changed as t relates to cleaning and sanitization factors throughout your business.
Implementation of policies such as outlining cleaning programs that are reviewed and updated frequently are vital to maintaining a healthy and safe work environment. This should also include what the staff can use to disinfect their personal materials that are brought to and from the workplace, this can also be further enforced by providing cleaning materials (such as Lysol wipes, disinfectant sprays, etc.) with clear instructions how how to use such products. Standard hand washing, social distancing and staying home if your sick guidelines should also be frequently monitored and enforced.
Most importantly, all businesses should go back to the workplace with a outbreak preparedness procedure that allows for employees to understand what to do if they are in the midst of an outbreak at your facility. The procedure for an outbreak must be vastly different than regular day-to-day operations which includes advanced and time-effective solutions to keep your business running as usual as soon as possible and most importantly, to keep yourself and those around you safe.
