Checklist to Reopen Your Business
Things you can do to protect your employees and customers when reopening your business.
1. Provide PPE to Your Employees
PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) includes Masks, Gloves, and Safety Glasses. Providing PPE can help slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus from transmitting it to others. Providing PPE helps build a safe working environment.
2. Add a Hand Sanitizer Station and Ensure These Are Always Stocked
CDC recommends using a Hand Sanitizer that contains at least 60% Alcohol, if soap and water are not readily available. Adding a Hand Sanitizer Station in your facility can help improve hygiene.
3. Provide Temperature/Symptom Screenings
It’s a good idea to Screen Employees for Temperature or Symptoms, before entering the workspace, at the beginning of their shifts. Also, providing Sick Leave when employees are having frequent coughs, fevers, difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, the recent loss of taste or smell, or if they or someone they live with has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
4. Have Cleaning Wipes Accessible
To avoid transferring viruses and bacteria to your home/work, it's helpful to reduce viruses and bacteria with wipes. Cleaning and Disinfecting Wipes are convenient tools for employees to use during their shifts.
5. Disinfect Daily
Create cleaning protocols for your business. Assign 1 or more employees to use Disinfectants regularly. Areas to disinfect include offices, dining spaces, break rooms, door handles, tables, desks, light switches, countertops, phones, toilets, sinks, faucets, chairs, and more. It is highly recommended that workstations be disinfected before using it, especially for common working spaces.
Use EPA Registered Disinfectants or Disinfectants which contain EPA Registered Ingredients to fight against COVID-19. (https://www.epa.gov/pesticide-registration/list-n-disinfectants-use-against-sars-cov-2-covid-19)
6. Provide Employee Training to Prevent COVID-19 in Workspaces
Providing information on COVID-19, including how to prevent it from spreading, and which underlying health conditions may make individuals more susceptible to contracting the virus, are key to a more hygienic workplace.
