When reopening your organisation in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, it is of the utmost importance that you ensure that your workplace is clean. This process has many steps, but your diligence will go a long way in protecting both your employees and customers.

Before reopening
• Assess all sites, or parts of sites, that have been closed before restarting work
• Conduct thorough cleaning procedures of all sites and provide hand sanitiser around the workplace
• Check ventilation for potential necessary adjustments due to lower occupancy levels

 

Keeping the workplace clean
• Conduct frequent, regular cleaning of work areas and equipment between uses. Be particularly diligent about
areas that are frequently visited, such as break or entrance areas
• Clear workspaces, and remove waste and belongings from the work area at
the end of each shift
• Take extra steps if responding to a known or suspected case of COVID-19

 

Hygiene – hand-washing, sanitation facilities and toilets
• Use signs and posters to build awareness of more frequent hand-washing and proper hand-washing technique
• Remind employees to avoid touching their face, and to cough or sneeze into a tissue of
their arms
• Provide signage and reminder regarding hygiene standards
• Make hand sanitiser accessible in multiple locations around the workplace
• Set clear usage and cleaning guidance for toilets to ensure they are kept clean and social distancing is maintained
• Provide hand-drying facilities, more waste facilities and more frequent rubbish collection
