Getting ready to open your business? Institute a COVID-19 Preparedness and Prevention Plan
As businesses across the country begin to open, one of the biggest challenges they face is how best to be prepared for the return of their workforce. Returning workers are looking to employers to provide reassurances that all necessary safety measures are in place, and all federal and state guidelines are being followed.
Now more than ever, being prepared and communicating these preparations to employees is fundamental to controlling the spread of coronavirus, and maintaining a safe work environment. Planning for this heightened level of safety is crucial, and the adoption of a preparedness and prevention plan is a framework many businesses are choosing to adopt.
The goal of a preparedness and prevention plan is to prepare and educate your employees and subcontractors in order to reduce the chances of contracting or spreading coronavirus through the workforce, or throughout workplaces. With a formalized plan in place, all of your employees will know the protocol, understand their role, and have clear safety expectations in their individual work environment.
A comprehensive preparedness plan will also outline important ongoing measures such as employee training, procurement and maintenance of necessary screening or PPE equipment, and assignment of safety and communication responsibilities. Additionally, by having a preparedness plan in place that follows CDC, OSHA, state-issued orders and guidelines you can be assured that your workplace(s) are in compliance with all necessary guidelines.
