The following from Inc. This Morning:
This week, governors across the country started announcing plans to reopen businesses in their respective states. Now, business owners everywhere are planning for the safest way to do so.
On Tuesday, Inc. staff writer Kevin J. Ryan tackled the issue--and found three key strategies that every business should use to protect the health of its employees. My personal favorite: waving goodbye to doorknobs.
Indow, a window manufacturer based in Portland, OR, has replaced doorknobs with hooks at its facility so workers can open doors with their forearms. The staff also placed colorful stickers next to often-touched areas such as light switches and buttons, to heighten awareness of those places; workers are each assigned shifts when they're responsible for cleaning those surfaces.
There are plenty of other in-office adjustments you can--and should--make before reopening your office’s doors. In his story, Ryan details methods for monitoring the health of your employees on an ongoing basis, plus the most useful recommendations issued by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, to date.
Check out the rest of the story for a primer on how to keep your workplace safe and healthy once you return.
And if you’re using additional strategies that could be useful for other business owners, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your response could be featured in a future edition of Inc. This Morning.
