Safety Measures Your Business Can Take To Fight COVID-19

The COVID-19 virus has changed the lives of everyone in the world and this is most prevalent in the workplace. There are protocols that your company can put in place to ensure the health and safety of both your customers and your employees. Here are a few for you to consider.

Precautions for Storefronts

Require your staff to wear face masks or other types of face coverings when they are on the premises. If they forget to bring one, purchase a box of disposable masks for them to use. You can also provide them with one or two to have when they are working that they can take home and wash.

Install a glass partition Toronto at each register between your employee and the customer for an added barrier of safety. Sanitize between each customer, wiping down the surfaces that they have touched, such as the counter and the keypad of your credit card machine. Indicate where customers should stand as they wait in line and make sure that the marks you leave on the floor are six feet from the next.

New Habits To Adopt

Stress to your staff that if they have any of the COVID-19 symptoms, they should stay home from their shift that day. Post what the symptoms are in a place where everyone can see so that they know what to be aware of if they are feeling under the weather.

Set up a new set of procedures for your company to follow within your business and for any workers who have tested positive and plan to return to work after the quarantine period has passed. Consider taking each employee’s temperature at the beginning of each shift to ensure they are fever-free. Space work areas or desks away from each other so that they fall outside of the six-foot parameters that are suggested by the Centers for Disease Control.
