While the COVID-19 pandemic has changed daily life as we know it, many employees have either continued to go to work or are now among those returning to their duties.

The government has continued to advise maintaining a distance of at least 2 metres between employees, but in some situations, this may not be possible. If your employees must work in close proximity, consider the following practices:

 

 

 

 

Position
Have employees work side-by-side or back-to-back as opposed to facing each other.

Ventilation
When working in an enclosed space, keep windows open.

Hand washing
Have employees wash their hands frequently, especially after coughing or sneezing, and before and after touching shared objects, such as door handles.

Schedules
Adjust schedules so that the same team of employees work together consistently.

Regular cleaning
Frequently clean and disinfect common areas and surfaces that are touched regularly.

Avoid crowding
Stagger shifts and break times to avoid crowding at entry points.
