Dear Valued Clients,
Since 2000, HB Staffing has valued the support from all of our clients greatly. During these hard times we want you to know that we are all in this together. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have an high impact on businesses across the nation, we sincerely hope that your business and employees are doing well.
As most of us are looking forward to a return to business as usual, there’s a lot for businesses to consider before they reopen their doors and return to production. Below, we broke down the Top 7 things to consider before reopening after COVID-19 that we’d love to share with you:
1. Adapt Quickly
- Prepare for the worst and hope for the best. During this time, be prepared to change the way your business is used to operating if you aren’t already and get ready to make alterations. Keep a healthy relationship with your existing clients and customers and suspend necessary portions of your operation if needed.
2. Stay Connected
- Stay connected with your local community and your business community. Keep up with the changes that are happening on a daily basis and share best practices with other businesses in your community. We are all in this together.
3. Social Distance
Increase the physical space between employees and reduce high touch points in your facility. Prepare sanitizing stations and clean touch points often.
The following are tips from the CDC about Social Distancing:
- Avoid gatherings of 10 or more people
- Instruct workers to maintain at least 6 feet of distance from other people
- Host meetings virtually when possible
- Limit the number of people on a job site to essential personnel only
- Encourage or require staff to work from home when possible
- Discourage people from shaking hands
4. Understand Different Risk Levels of Employees
- Keep in mind that not everyone will be comfortable to return to work. It’s important to be aware of employees that are high risk, elderly, or have chronic medical conditions. Consider customizing a reduced risk plan for their working situation or consider telecommuting.
5. Separate Sick Employees
- Employees who appear to have symptoms of illness upon arrival at work or who become sick during the day should immediately be sent home.
6. Practice Good Hygiene
- Businesses should provide tissues and install no-touch disposal receptacles
- Soap and water in the workplace should be ready and available
- Hand sanitizers should be set up in multiple locations to encourage hand hygiene and reduce touch point infection.
7. Routine Cleaning and Disinfection
- We recommend a cleaning service or voluntary regular sanitizing of your facility to prevent the spread of COVID-19 or other illnesses.
