When businesses started to open despite the pandemic, the paramount concern of the establishments was to be safe against the Coronavirus. At the third and last quarter of year 2020, businesses started to scramble back to normal and on-site employees were back to their normal grind. But, the normal work is not like before since we still have the dangerous Coronavirus. Normal work now involves safety and healthy precautions. There are guidelines and protocols suggested from authorities to follow.
SpaceIQ shared a blog post about COVID19 Workplace Safety Protection Checklist. The blog post said that health and safety begins even before employees enter the workplace. On the other hand, the World Health Organization shared an update on how to manage workplaces during COVID-19. As per WHO, “all sections of society – including employers and employees – should play a role to protect themselves and each other and help prevent further spread of the disease”.
Reopening of businesses despite the Coronavirus is quite risky but with the right safety measures and protocols, the spread of the Coronavirus will be controlled. Compliance of the guidelines as suggested by the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention must be religiously followed to make sure that the workplace is safe against the Coronavirus.

Education or awareness of the management up to the employees must includes cleaning and disinfecting of frequently touched objects and surfaces, regular handwashing, proper coughing or sneezing, avoiding touching of eyes, nose and mouth.
The safety measures in the workplace must include Social Distancing since this is the standard established protocol to minimize physical contact which is the main cause of the spread of the Coronavirus. Social distancing in the office may include some changes in the layout of the workplace. A staggered work schedule is also a great option as pointed by OpenPath’s blog post.
- Risk Assessment – Risk assessment during the COVID-19 pandemic will help manage risk and protect the people in the workplace. Businesses’ management must identify the work activity or situations that might cause transmission of the virus. The main purpose of risk assessment is to remove and control the risk of the virus.
- Sanitation – A scheduled daily cleaning and disinfection to all frequently touched surfaces in the workplace is a must.
