Reopening: What You Need to Do to Keep Your Employees Safe


The moment your building reopens, the first thing clients and employees will want to know is: is it safe. Keeping your facility clean during this pandemic is a great way to prevent bacteria from spreading while maintaining the health of your employees. When the dust begins to settle and businesses start re-opening their doors to the community and their employees, disease-prevention protocols will be more important than ever before. There are an innumerable amount of ways to keep your employees safe, but there are a few significant steps you can take to successfully reopen and maintain your business post-Coronavirus.


Providing a Clean Space for Re-Entry

If your company has been working remote these past few weeks, you may be thinking there’s no need for cleaning a vacant office. However, the most important precaution you can take when reopening your workspace is deep-cleaning the building before anyone even steps foot in the door. This will not only keep everyone safe, but will also show your employees what you’re doing to protect them during this pandemic.

Hiring a highly trained professional cleaning team to clean, disinfect, and sanitize your building from top to bottom will ultimately determine whether your whole team becomes infected or not. Things like washing, vacuuming, and sanitizing all high-touch, high-traffic areas in the weeks before opening and wiping down all surfaces is a tried and true strategy for keeping your team safe and virus-free.


Implementing a Regular Cleaning Routine

Your On-Site Sanitation Team worked hard to make your building cleaner than it ever has been, but their job isn’t over yet. Once the hustle and bustle returns to your workplace, it’s important to maintain a regularly-scheduled routine cleaning strategy to keep your office in tip-top shape while the virus dissipates. Employees and clients alike will want to know what you’re doing to keep them safe, and having a process for regular cleaning is the perfect way to show them.

Cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting the various surfaces throughout your office on a routine basis will fend off any chance of developing COVID-19. 


Having a Sanitation Specialist On-Site

To make your life a little easier, it’s important to consider the various options you have to maintain the cleanliness of your workspace. Hiring an On-Site Sanitation Specialist will allow you to continue with your day without being involved in too much of the actual sanitization. From handling potential contaminants to routine sanitization, they’re trained and qualified to handle it all. Plus, their budget of hours is flexible to fit your wants and needs and really embed themselves into your team. 


Equipping Your Team With the Tools They Need

It goes without saying that reopening your building provides a lot of potential for germs to spread and flourish. During this tumultuous and risky time, providing your employees with copious amounts of disinfectant spray, hand sanitizer, sterile gloves, and germ-protective clothing and headgear is a must for keeping your team safe. 


Educate Your Employees About Safety Precautions

Be sure to educate them on how to properly conduct themselves and do their part to help beat COVID-19. Enforcing proper handwashing, precautions, and general cleanliness strategies are important safety measures that will benefit your company in the long run. If there are any concerns that these protocols have been breached, the situation can be handled immediately and appropriately to stop the contamination from spreading.
