As the region moves forward in reopening, there are crucial steps to take to ensure the safety of your workers and customers. Covid 19 – especially the newer variants – is a formidable foe. We need to be doubly stringent if we are to reopen safely. Here are a few things you can do as a business owner.
Make the most of the work-from-home (WFH) setup: If there are functions within your business that can be done remotely, do so. Now, more than ever, it is crucial for people to minimize unnecessary movement / socialisation. Sure, we miss our co-workers and friends but, this has proven to be effective in keeping the virus from spreading.
As we open up little by little, let’s keep the WFH crew at home for a little longer. See how the business functions with others working remotely. WFH is a setup that can be beneficial for you and your team in the longer run.
Return slowly: Of course, there’s work that can’t be done elsewhere. Your team needs to be present and able to attend to your customers. Plan for this eventuality. If possible, rotate your staff so that they have more social space, and less chances of getting breakthrough infections.
Get everyone vaccinated: It’s been proven that the current batch of Covid vaccines work in minimising risks of severe Covid infection, hospitalisation and death. Your work crew needs to get vaccinated as they are frontliners for your business. They are exposed to human traffic daily.
Disinfect: There are business disinfection services, such as Sanisafe, that decontaminates your work place / business property from Covid and other viruses. Before your crew and clients return, make sure to book a decontamination appointment.
Update your business procedures: The threat of Covid looms, even as we slowly reopen. The virus is not going away soon; that is an unfortunate reality. but, life and business have to move on and move forward.
Start by updating your business procedures. Designate functions that can be done remotely and have your workers work from home. Initiate policies within the workplace that promote safety and good health, such as the wearing of face masks, monitoring for symptoms, and extra hygiene measure for workers that handle food and other similar materials.
