Before resuming operations double check if your building is ready for occupancy:
- Confirm ventilation system is functioning correctly and easy access to windows to increase air flow
- Perform an assessment of hazardous common workplace areas
- Thoroughly communicate with all personnel in the office about guidelines
- Air purifiers to protect and clean the air conditions in your building
- Provide health safety gear to employees and how to correctly use them
- Set up stations to sanitize oneself
- Post signage to encourage social distancing behavior
- Organize barriers between areas of contact to decrease germ spread
Frequently touched areas to consider:
- Touch screens
- Keyboards & mice
- Drawer pulls
- Tables & desks
- Light switches
- Faucets & sinks
- Bathroom area
- Seating areas and chairs
In areas of close human contact, such as the front reception desk, use countertop barriers to limit touch points and decrease transmission of germs.
