“Keeping Your Doors Open”
Creating a safe workplace with COVID takes proactive and reactive measures. A full list of guidelines for California can be found on the State of California’s website. Here are some key points
Proactive measures include implementing a regular cleaning and disinfecting program. Employees should be provided with masks, gloves, disinfecting wipes &/or spray for their workspace. Have hand sanitizer or wipes near commonly used surfaces such as copiers, kitchen appliances etc. Practice physical distancing of at least 6 feet between persons at the workplace when possible. At our SERVPRO® office, we take the additional step of Ultra Low Volume (ULV) fogging of SERVPROXIDE™ on Monday, Wednesday and Friday prior to our office staff’s arrival. The fogging lands on areas that might not be cleaned during wiping and adds an additional layer of disinfecting.
Should an employee be suspected of or have a confirmed case of COVID, the following steps should be taken to return the workspace for safe occupancy:
- Temporarily close the general area where the infected employee worked until cleaning is completed.
- Conduct deep cleaning of the entire general area where the infected employee worked and may have been, including breakrooms, restrooms and travel areas, with a cleaning agent approved for use by the EPA against coronavirus. It should ideally be performed by a professional cleaning service such as SERVPRO® of Tustin.
