Planning Ahead

Nominate a worker or a team of workers who are committed to safe practices in the workplace and who teach their colleagues the correct procedures.

Develop a plan to ensure business continuity if there is a new suspected or confirmed COVID-19 outbreak in your workplace.

Consider what you can do if one of your employees is suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19, including how to support them and what you must do to keep the workplace safe forother workers.

Consider the availability of suitable cleaning products and personal protective equipment for disinfecting the workplace after the outbreak. If not, consider hiring a cleaning company to do the job.

Cleaning

Ensure that all areas frequented by workers or other persons (e.g. visitors to your establishment) are cleaned with detergents or disinfectants at least daily.

Instruct workers to wear gloves when cleaning and that they must wash their hands thoroughly before and after wearing gloves or disinfect them with alcohol-based hand disinfectants.

Clean frequently touched areas and surfaces several times a day with a detergent or disinfectant solution or a wipe. These include electronic payment systems, elevator buttons, handrails, tables, worktops, door knobs, sinks and keyboards.

Encourage employees who come to work to clean personal items such as sunglasses, mobile phones and iPads with a disinfectant solution such as disinfectant wipes.

Handwashing and Hygiene

Have sufficient hand disinfection stations at entrances and exits and around the workplace.

Ensure that the bathrooms are equipped with sufficient handwashing products and paper towels.

Put up posters with instructions for handwashing / hand disinfection.

Instruct workers about other ways to limit the spread of germs, including not touching their face, sneezing in their elbows and staying home when they feel sick.

Increase access to closed containers in the workplace.

Put up signs asking customers to touch only items they want to buy.

Physical Distancing

Put up posters around the workplace, keeping a distance of at least 1.5 metres between all persons at the workplace.

Place signs at the entrances to lifts and meeting rooms to ensure that the maximum safe capacity is not exceeded.

Move workplaces, desks and tables in staff rooms further apart to maintain social distance.

If possible, shift arrangements should be made so that fewer employees are at the workplace at the same time.

Encourage employees to hold meetings by telephone or online instead of in person. If this is not possible, ask them to meet in a large room and keep meetings short.

Check regular deliveries and request contactless delivery. Check whether electronic invoicing systems are in place.

Ensure social distance markings on the floor in areas where customers are lined up or where workers are performing tasks.

Appoint a person from the work area who is responsible for ensuring that everyone keeps the required distance of 1.5 m.

Monitoring symptoms

Put up signs about the symptoms of COVID-19 in the workplace.

Instruct workers to stay at home if they are ill and if they show symptoms of COVID-19, ask them to report to the responsible health authority or contact point.

Ask workers to tell you if they have symptoms of COVID-19, if they have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, or if they have been tested for COVID-19.

Remind employees of their vacation entitlements if they are sick or have to perform a self-quarantine.

Treat personal information about the health of individual employees carefully and in accordance with data protection laws.

Make it easier for employees who are obliged to carry out self-quarantine but show no symptoms to work from home if possible.

(section name not set)

Give your employees guidance on how to set up a safe home office environment.

Ask workers to complete a self-assessment checklist to ensure they are following good ergonomic practices.

Make it easier for employees who are obliged to carry out self-quarantine but show no symptoms to work from home if possible.

Establish opportunities for online communication with employees and communicate with them on a daily basis.

Provide employees with information about the support options available to them, for example, through an employee assistance program.
