Your workplace is a place where you spend many hours and probably deal with a lot of people.
To minimize the risk of contracting the coronavirus, follow the WHO recommendations below and try to implement them at your workplace.
In this way, in addition to protecting yourself, you will significantly reduce the risk of transmitting the virus from the outside environment to your home, spouse and children.
Workplace preparation instructions include:
Surfaces, such as conference tables, desks, and appliances such as telephones and keyboards, should be cleaned regularly with disinfectant.
Encourage telecommuting in your organization. If the corona virus has spread in your area, health officials may advise people to stay away from public transportation and crowded places. So telecommuting can be a way to keep your organization running while keeping your co-workers healthy.
Your employees must take seriously and fully comply with local restrictions on travel, traffic, or attending large gatherings.
Explain to your staff, contractors, and customers that anyone with a mild fever or cough should stay home when the coronavirus spreads in the community.
Advise staff and contractors to consult with local authorities before making any business trip.
Maintain proper respiratory hygiene and encourage others to follow these tips. At work, be sure to have a face mask, paper towels, and trash cans, especially for those with runny noses or coughs.
Wash your hands regularly and encourage others to do the same.
At your workplace, place containers for hand sanitizer gel in a variety of places and accessible to all, and allow clients, contractors, and customers to use soap and water to wash their hands.
Summary of what you need to do at work to fight the corona virus:
• Keep your workplace clean and hygienic
• Wash your hands thoroughly and encourage others to do the same
• Before each business trip, be sure to pay attention to the country recommendations for traveling to that area
• Advise sick people to stay home
