Three Steps To Workplace Safety

 

Step One: Access To Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

The PPE required during COVID-19 can vary depending on your environment.  Here are the all-environment necessities, and the case-dependent items...

 

The Necessities: 

  • Face Masks 

  • Hand Sanitizer 

Additional PPE Options - Dependent on Environment:

  • Face Shields 

  • Disposable Gloves

  • Plexiglass Barriers Where Interactions With Public or Co-Workers Take Place

  • Disposable Gowns

  • Contactless Infrared Thermometer 

The PPE resources should be disposed with the following questions in mind:

  • Can people access this without contaminating the rest of the stock of PPE?

  • Are the PPE available before a person can potentially come in contact with someone in my organization? 

  • Is my PPE solution acceptable for my specific business' and employees' needs? 

Step Two: Integrate a Comprehensive Workplace Screening System 

Ensure that a workplace screening system is in place for all entrants, not just visitors.

Effective screening not only protects your workplace,  but it serves to educate and train everyone with best practices. This help to train and keep a "top of mind" awareness that changes behaviour.  

A comprehensive workplace safety screening video is the most thorough and effective way to screen your traffic.

Your workplace screening should cover the following topics:

  • Within the past three days, have you had any of the following symptoms:

    • Fever (>100.4 F) or chills​

    • Cough or sore throat 

    • Fatigue or body aches

    • Congestion or runny nose

    • Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea 

    • A new loss of taste or smell

    • Difficulty breathing

    • Headaches

  • Were any of these symptoms a result of a pre-diagnosed medical condition or allergies? 

  • Within the last 14 days, have you traveled outside of the country? 

  • Within the last 14 days, have you participated in an activity which had:

    • A reported outbreak​

    • More than 10 people in attendance

    • Insufficient access to PPE

    • Physical distancing closer than six feet 

    • Within the last 14 days, have you or anyone in your immediate household been required to self quarantine or been contacted by health authorities about possible exposure to COVID-19?

  • Within the last 14 days, have you been inside of a medical or senior living facility that was actively caring for COVID-19 patients? 

  • If you answered yes to any of the questions above, please contact your host immediately. 

Step Three:  Do you have Contact Tracing in place?

In the event of an outbreak, you need to be prepared to take the appropriate subsequent steps immediately and expeditiously. You must integrate a contact tracing system in which every single entrant of your building has left a reliable contact point so they can be notified that they could have potentially been in contact with a person that has the virus.

 

Government health officials require and depend on this as one of the most effective means to control the spread of the virus. 

 

What we recommend is a digital contact tracing solution, one that allows you to go back to a specific day in just a matter of clicks and access a full list of ready-to-contact patrons immediately. ZAP IN is an extremely effective contact tracing solution. It resolves both the issues of sharing pens/pencils and requiring an employee to be present, as it is fully self serving.

ZAP IN's General Tips & Best Practices

Helpful tips to keep in mind:

  • Work from home if you can 

  • Wash your hands as often as possible (and thoroughly) 

  • If you're going to a work or social event, ensure that the event is employing the proper procedures 

  • Be mindful of where you use your hands in public spaces

  • Although it can be difficult, try and stop yourself from subconsciously touching your own face

  • For high traffic zones, ensure that increased PPE supplies and increased cleaning measures are in place 

  • Adjust social customs, i.e. handshakes and hugs

  • Minimize visits with high-risk individuals 

  • Modify internal activities to promote adherence to physical distancing measures

  • Review break-time schedules to ensure that the break rooms or common areas have minimal traffic during shifts

  • Emergency Care personnel (police, EMS, etc...) do not require screening - they all are screened at the start of their shift

  • Retain a low threshold for testing - as soon as somebody shows one related symptom - test them, do not wait
