COVID-19 restrictions are constantly shifting around the country depending on any given community’s surge. For those with low case numbers, many “nonessential” businesses are planning, or are in the process of, bringing employees back to work. Regardless of where companies land on this spectrum, one concern is top of mind for all: Safety.
While prudent, this anxiety degrades productivity. With so many people in or returning to the office, how can social distancing be effectively practiced? What happens when an employee comes in contact with someone with COVID-19, putting everyone else at risk?
The uncertainty of when to return to work for businesses has been replaced by a more important question: How to do it safely?
The substantial risk of infection leaves employers worrying about their employees’ mental and physical health simultaneously. These concerns can be mitigated with adequate preparation and planning.
If you are not prepared to have your employees return and have not planned for contingencies to keep everyone safe, your business and workforce could be at risk.
To prepare for the return of your employees, all local, state, and federal health protocols should be closely followed. For this, we turn to the Centers of Disease Control.
The CDC has a number of resources available to help you keep your workforce safe and business protected. The agency recommends that these guidelines to enact a Back to Work plan that is specific to , and that addresses employees’ unique concerns.
A Back to Work safety plan can include:
Having tactics like these in place will ease employees’ concerns, letting them focus on their jobs. Furthermore, with CDC mandated health and safety protocols in place, the risks of COVID-19 infection can be minimized significantly.
A Back to Work safety protocol that is tailored to your business, and that fits your employees’ needs, will help keep your team, their families, and the community safe by slowing the spread of infection. Aside from liability issues that can come from ill-preparedness, having a clearly defined plan in place increases worker confidence and morale. A Back to Work plan sends a clear message that the company cares, and that empathy can go a long way.
Putting a plan in place will help reduce distraction and help your teams get back to what they do best.
Our Back to Work Safety protocol follows CDC guidelines for COVID-19 screenings and testing, and those suggested by global, national, and local health authorities. We also work with your local health department to ensure the testing and communication process follows all local laws and regulations.
ProLink’s estimated timeline to implement our Back to Work Safety program is within 72 hours after the contract has been executed. You should begin seeing results in 48-72 hours. The results will be faxed to a secure fax number to ensure privacy and HIPAA regulation compliance.
