Low Cost Ways to Limit the Spread of COVID-19 at Work

Low Cost Ways to Limit the Spread of COVID-19 at Work
Posted By: Lizzie Weakley on January 14, 2021

The coronavirus spreads like wildfire in close-knit work environments. You and everyone in the workplace must change every aspect of your daily routine, whether you're sharing pens or using the bathroom. If there is no way you can transfer to a work-from-home environment, here are a few, easy, low-cost solutions to reduce the easy spread of COVID-19 at work.

Wear a Mask All the Time
The most certain way to stay safe at work is for you and your coworkers to wear your masks at all times. This is especially necessary if you're working directly with customers all day long. This means that you must avoid removing the mask during breaks and outside of the building. Although this technique is very safe, it's not totally efficient because you may have one or two who won't follow the rule all the time. Be sure to hold each other accountable and keep wearing masks, even if you feel comfortable or safe.

Have Protocols for Entering and Exiting the Building
On this same tack, make sure customers put on a mask before opening the door, and have them close it behind them. This way, you'll prevent airborne particles from entering the room. Additionally, you can run checks at the door. There are specific symptoms of a COVID-19 infection to check for, such as a high temperature, runny nose and difficulty breathing. COVID 19 employee temperature screening helps you to detect these symptoms in a potentially infected employee.



A nurse can perform this check or the employees themselves can learn how to use special onsite equipment. Employers can decide to perform temperature checks each time the employees come to work or on a periodic basis.

Practice Physical Distancing
Employees must remember to stay at least 6 feet away from each other. This rule applies even when they're all wearing masks. Employers should move their workstations far enough apart to practice proper social distancing. Even a limited space can provide opportunities to better enable physical distancing. For example, if you work at a restaurant, you can close down seating and use some of that as a work space. You can also make customers sign up for appointments before they come in to avoid crowding.

Practice Sanitation
COVID-19 virus particles can survive on surfaces for several hours. Maintain a very clean workplace that is constantly disinfected and wiped down on a daily basis. At each workstation, keep a disinfectant spray bottle with disposable paper towels nearby. Everyone must learn to clean their sites properly and practice sanitation to optimal levels. Make a plan, train your employees, and ensure that it is implemented daily.
The most effective way to prevent any problem is to be well informed. Stock up on masks for the staff along with hand sanitizers, soaps and disposable cloths. Understand how the disease spreads and the ways to prevent its transmission between people. Pass this knowledge on to other coworkers. At the same time, save money by not having to spend a fortune on preventative methods.
