Welcome Employees Back to a Cleaner, Safer Workplace
General Considerations for Reopening the Workplace
- Welcome kits can help employees get reacclimated to the workplace.
- Face cover programs should be easy to follow and accessible for all employees.
- Organize the stocking and distribution of PPE, such as gloves, masks, and sanitizers.
- Designated isolation areas with clearly communicated protocol reduce risk and confusion.
- Clear and up-to-date promotional and directional signage boosts hygiene awareness and compliance.
Health-Conscious Entrance & Exit Strategies
- Security stations, check-ins, or tents may be needed to bring employees into the building safely.
- Sanitizer dispensers should be installed at strategic locations throughout the building.
- Testing program implementation.
Cleaning Programs, Disinfecting & Nano-Coating
- Implement a fully developed cleaning program; following a regimented protocol allows you to achieve maximum effectiveness in sanitation efforts.
- Routine cleaning services provided by uniformed professionals in high-visibility gear helps instill a sense of awareness, routine, and importance.
- Electrostatic disinfecting kills 99.99% of bacteria, viruses, mold and other microbes on contact, and allows for easy disinfecting of hard-to-reach surfaces. Electrically charged cleaning products easily wrap around surfaces with 360-degree coverage while making overuse easy to avoid.
- Nano-coating systems and programs, which form an anti-bacterial layer that attracts and kills bacteria, viruses, and more and inhibits organic growth for up to 90-days.
- Supplemental day staff, floor wardens, restroom attendees, and visible defenders to assist and help promote awareness among your organization.
- Communicate turnover guidelines and interim sanitization processes.
New Employee Restrictions & Safety Guidelines
- Dedicated traffic signage such as directional arrows can be placed on the floor, as well as designated lanes and markers for spacing requirements.
- Corridors, stairs, elevators, conference rooms, work areas, cafés, and restrooms may require new rules for safe usage or restricted access.
- Arrival and departure times of production crews may need rescheduling; many companies are exploring alternating shifts to minimize employee exposure to each other and the workplace.
- Building occupancy and density numbers may see changes in regulations.
Updating Systems & Hardware for Hygienic Solutions
- HVAC system upgrades such as UV & ozone generators.
- Work station modifications to help enforce social distancing.
- Partitions and temporary systems, such as clear plastic barriers, can be used to separate cubicles and workstations.
- Touchless hardware and dispensers.
