How Should Your Business Respond To Coronavirus?

How Should Your Business Respond to Coronavirus?

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic affects all businesses in Southfield, MI. Today’s post explains 3 steps your business should take in response to the outbreak to stay safe and fight the spread.

1. Prioritize Workplace Safety

Remember: safety first. Staff and customers are counting on you. 

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends practicing the following healthy habits to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19):

  • Avoid close contact, especially with people who are sick. Make sure employees know to stay home if they don’t feel well, and to keep their distance from others (at least 6 feet) in public places in order to stop the spread of respiratory droplets. With this in mind, it’s a good idea to cancel any meetings and postpone any work-related travel until further notice.
  • Clean your hands often. Washing your hands often for 20 seconds will help protect you from germs. When soap and water aren’t available, use an alcohol based hand sanitizer with at least 60% Ethyl Alcohol.
  • Practice other good health habits. Use regular household cleaning spray or wipe to clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces at home, work or school.
  • Avoid touching your face. Germs spread when a person touches something that is contaminated and then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth.

2. Install Anti-pandemic Safety Signage

Building off the previous point, the best way to implement the CDC’s anti-pandemic health protocols is to display them throughout your place of business on safety signage. A review of research by the Journal of Occupational Hygiene determined that safety signs were highly effective in reducing workplace hazards and increasing compliance with new protocols. But researchers also emphasized the importance of proper design–”acceptable perception of signs” is rated at 72.2%, but several case studies showed perception rates of only 69.2%. In their closing remarks, Talab et al. (2013) concluded that greater attention to sign design and education was needed.
