As we come closer to the, much anticipated, “home stretch” to workplace re-entry, our attention turns to the policies and procedures we’ll need to have in place as the doors begin to open.
To save time, here’s a beginning… a quick overview of the steps that will drive this process.
How to Start Building a Plan for Workplace Re-entry
Track state or regional orders
Stay current on state and local orders including school and daycare closures.
Assign responsibility for daily review of covid19.ca.gov/business-and-employers
Identify your high risk groups and locations.
Review the analytics and specific needs & modify re-entry protocols accordingly.
Keep up to date on health guidelines (social distancing, masks, cleanliness, etc.).
Address your vendor marketplace, workforce transportation, travel, and facility’s needs.
Develop a written strategic re-entry plan that is evidence based.
Include a response plan for new COVID cases, employees exposed, and testing.
Have a plan in place for communicating and keeping employees updated.
Human connection is important.
