Act (in case of an outbreak)

  • observe good hand hygiene.

 

How Can Businesses Protect Employees From COVID-19?

 

Along with Corona infected patients, COVID-19 has affected businesses and industries worldwide. Therefore, it is best (or We might the only option left) for employers to learn ways to prevent COVID-19 from becoming an occupational hazard. Businesses and organizations can practice the following to mitigate risks in the workplace:

 

Adopt proper knowledge dissemination in the workplace and cascade guidelines that employees can obey concerning Novel Corona Virus.

 

Read and follow the CDC’s recommendation for employers:

 

  • Employees should be notified and asked to stay at home for the safety.
  • Employees who are sick or become sick while in the workplace should be separated from other employees immediately.
  • Instruct employees on proper hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette.
  • Environmental cleaning should be routine. Frequently touched surfaces should always be cleaned.

 

Tool for COVID-19 Preparation

 

Novel Corona Virus is the newest pandemic that impacted the entire world. Sadly, there are confirmed cases increasing exponentially every day in many countries. 

As the cure is absent, the best defense against COVID-19 is to ensure that recommended protocols are followed thoroughly.

This is how you can prevent getting infected and control its spread. 

 

Most of the states in India are also locked down by the government to prevent Corona's spread. Canwinn Foundation request you to follow the instruction given by the WHO to keep yourself and the entire human race safe.
