As the novel coronavirus continues to spread, the health and safety of your customers and staff are of utmost importance.
We’ve prepared simple guidelines in line with recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help protect your employees and customers during this time.
Rest assured that Worksmith cleaning vendors have been instructed to comply with the cleaning and disinfecting process recommended by the CDC (available here).
1. Make sure your locations are clean
Regular cleaning is one of the most important preventive measures available. Take extra precautions to ensure cleanliness by incorporating additional deep cleaning and disinfecting procedures to your daily operations. Surfaces (e.g. desks and tables) and objects (e.g. telephones, keyboards, tablets) need to be wiped with disinfectant regularly. All cleaning vendors on the Worksmith platform have been instructed to comply with the cleaning and disinfecting process recommended by the CDC (available here).
2. Promote good respiratory etiquette and hand hygiene
Use the tactics below to help promote good hygiene practices:
- Remind employees about proper cough and sneeze etiquette, and instruct employees on clean hand hygiene
- Put sanitizing hand rub dispensers in prominent places and make sure these dispensers are regularly refilled
- Display posters promoting hand-washing (available on the CDC and WHO websites)
- Provide tissues and no-touch disposal receptacles
3. Encourage sick employees to stay home
Employees who have symptoms of fever, chills, cough, and shortness of breath should stay home and not come to work until they are free of fever (100.4° F or greater) and any other symptoms for at least 24 hours.
Worksmith will continue to follow the latest guidance from the CDC, WHO, local governments and public health agencies to ensure we help you navigate these challenging circumstances with everyone’s health and wellbeing in mind.
