How to Properly Train and Keep Employees Safe During COVID-19


COVID-19 forced many businesses to put their operations on hold, but many businesses have recently begun reopening their doors. For the majority of people, the reopening of businesses is exciting and provides hope for a better tomorrow; however, many returning employees are facing health and safety risks.

Regardless of respective industries, as employees return to work, there are various aspects that employers should consider regarding workplace safety. How can I prioritize the health of my employees while still remaining productive? What measures can I take to stay compliant and guarantee my business won’t shut down again?

In efforts to guide employees during these uncertain times, and ensure their safety as they help operate businesses, proper training is essential. Below are possible practices to adopt in order to properly train employees and run an efficient business in a COVID-19 world.

Keep Employees Informed & Updated on Changing Practices

Back in March, there were endless amounts of questions but only a few answers, which left the public feeling uncertain of the future. This virus swept in and forced many locations to lockdown, resulting in the shutdown of many businesses, both big and small. In recent months, officials have since made strides to allow those shutdown businesses to reopen, but not without specific safety measures and evolved business practices outlined by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

As this pandemic has pressed on, many of those initial practices, guidelines and policies for conducting business have changed. As aspects of business continue to change, while we hopefully phase-out of this COVID-centric era, it is pertinent to keep employees updated about any and every altercation.

For example, each state is in a varying degree of progression as a result of its current state of the virus. Particular states are reversing as COVID-19 case numbers rise and other states are fully reopened, which impacts the way businesses are run.

If your state requires employees to wear specific PPE or participate in daily health screens, temperature checks, or questionnaires, ensure your employees are in-the-know.
