With so much going on and each day changing, it is important to understand how our business operations will continue.  Are you prepared for a COVID-19 incident in your workplace? In this unprecedented time, everyone is scrambling to contain the contagion and minimize its impact.  That’s the right thing, but at some point as the virus progresses, the need to restart the world will crisscross with folks moving around in community spaces that are infected.  HRP is currently developing customized plans for clients to prepare them for COVID-19 incidents which are unfortunately inevitable.  Ask yourself:

  1. What can I do to prevent employee exposure?
  2. What preventative measures do I have in place to keep all employees safe?
  3. What will I do if I have an employee who tests positive for COVID-19?
  4. How do I know the cleanup crew I hire is qualified and doesn't rip me off?
  5. Am I cleaning the entire facility, or just certain areas? Will operations continue during the cleanup?
  6. Are the cleaning agents compatible with our process?
  7. How will the waste materials generated from the cleanup be managed and who is liable for them?

The cost and logistical questions can go on and on.

Our Certified Industrial Hygienists, Certified Hazardous Material Managers, Certified Safety Professionals and Professional Engineers are helping clients develop these very important plans.  By developing and exercising a plan now you can ensure that you are in a positive position to deal with an incident and keep your business open. We develop customized plans for local service stations to a million square feet manufacturing facilities. The plans address preventative procedures and response protocols, specify methods and contractor requirements and address cost containment.  HRP can supply you with a custom plan which can be implemented on your own, or we can offer oversight and management during the implementation process.   View our most recent webinar on Preparedness and Response here https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/1742522926443062540.

COVID Plan Auditing

Since the onset of the pandemic, HRP has been advising employers to assess their risks and hazards surrounding the SARS-CoV-2 virus, put into place prevention practices, and control the potential spread of the virus.  This Assess-Prevent-Control strategy needs to periodically be reassessed in order to respond to changing conditions and ever changing guidance.  Whether you are assessing the efficacy of your Assess-Prevent-Control strategy, or you need just another pair of expert eyes to audit your program, HRP is again your solution!  We have audited formal and informal infectious disease plans, identified opportunities for improvement, and worked with employers to improve their programs.  Our auditing strategies not only improve one’s response to the virus but also give employees a since of comfort knowing their employer’s program has been critiqued by a third party.
