With the rapid spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) globally, employers and building facility managers need to implement necessary precautions to prepare and limit the spread of this virus to their workforce, building tenants, and visitors by staying up to date with the latest guidelines provided by the CDC and actively educate employees, tenants, and visitors on the preventative measures taken to minimize the spread of the virus.

The CDC has made the following resources available for Businesses and Employers to plan, prepare and respond to the Coronavirus in the workplace:

Four safety strategies for the workplace

But how do you keep your facility running with the increasing plant shutdowns, deep cleaning effort, staff quarantines, etc.? Four safety strategies can help.

  • Employers should keep themselves and employees updated with the CDC’s recommendations.
  • Preventive strategies in the workplace
  • The OSHA interim guidance and other resources for preventing exposures to, and infection with COVID-19
  • In the US, there are numerous measures being adopted that is in line with the CDC guidelines for businesses and employers to plan and respond to the coronavirus.
Using EAM/CMMS to track remediation in the workplace

A computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) can be used to address some of these requirements and make the plant floor safer:

  • Create work requests for line scrub downs or team temperature checks
  • Collect track and trace information of employees (attachments to employee record e.g. telephone number, home address, next of kin, travel details, etc.).
  • Replacement of hand sanitizers and hand wash stations, etc.
