There's no question that Covid-19 is still a serious issue in the country. There's also no question that, across the country, a lot of the businesses that shut down temporarily are in the process of re-opening, if they haven't already. So that leads to the following questions: How do I keep customers safe? How do I keep myself safe? How do I keep my vendors safe? It's a worrying time for a lot of people, and there can be a lot of contradictory advice.
While there's some generic answers available that people can listen to, no solution is applicable to every circumstance. You may have questions about how best to implement a strategy that keeps your employees 6 feet from each other, for example. Maybe you'll need to rearrange some things. But what's the best way to ensure that everybody understands how to keep themselves and others safe? Do you need signs or a new protocol to inform others of?
It's hard to be sure what the best way to handle things is, when the best time is to start bringing back remote employees, if it's reasonable to start bringing back remote employees, and so on.
All these questions and more can be answered by hiring a Covid 19 consultanting company. It may seem a little extravagant, but these are the people that are helping industry leaders across the country put into place safer practices for reopening your work place. They're staying on top of the science as it comes out (very important, as our understanding of Covid-19 seems to be evolving quickly), in order to help you make the best possible choice for your workspace.
Many of the agencies offering these services also have a lot of online resources. Articles and suggestions, for lots of different types of industries, that can help get you started. That way you can start working on getting some of those practices into place before talking to your consultant.
A consultant may also be able to help direct you to the best way to get financial help to make the changes that you might need to make for your business.
They know you take your work, your health, the health of your employees, clients, customers and/or vendors very seriously. They will be dedicated to helping you set your business up so you can get back to business as usual, but as safe as can possibly be done.
