As we are well into a year of COVID-19 affecting our daily lives, it is important to remember that we must still follow all safety measures for COVID-19 prevention. Effective disinfectant is a crucial component of decreasing the risk of exposure to COVID-19, especially in the workplace.
A written safety plan that outlines the policies, guidelines and procedures put in place to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission signals that the business has done its homework and that workers and visitors can enter the workplace with confidence.
