After several discussions, I think the recovery from the pandemic may be a bit more difficult to get out from, than it was to get in to, for many businesses. By that I mean that getting staff back to work is going to involve a number of steps that many have not thought about. Everything will mean more change, from maintaining physical distancing, to closing common areas people congregate, disinfecting and maintenance of personal space at work and so on, but also dealing with child care, anxiety with having people around (especially the older staff and those with compromised health) etc.
Every business will respond in their own way, but I thought that the following might provide a few tips as you prepare your own recovery plan.
The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health & Safety has created free tip sheets as guidance while operating during the COVID-19 pandemic. Each document offers health and safety tips and good practices, for both employers and workers, specific to each industry or sector. Organizations and businesses can adopt this guidance to protect their workers and prevent the spread of infections. The tip sheets cover a range of occupations and industries from construction and trucking to healthcare and daycares.
