With the doors back open at your company, you need to consider what the expectations are for visitors, including business partners, service contractors, and delivery drivers.
First off, if visitors aren’t involved with essential operations, reschedule their visits.
For those visitors who need to be onsite and entering your facility, implement a pre-screening process. As part of that process, have them answer a short questionnaire. The questionnaire should include inquiries about:
- Whether they traveled outside their local community in the last 14 days
- Whether they’ve had any close contact with people who’ve tested positive for COVID-19
- Whether they’re currently experiencing any unexplained health symptoms
Performing your due diligence before visitors enter your facility can help prevent health issues at your business.
Of course, visitors should also continue social distancing practices and wear PPE depending on your policy and state requirements.
If you have questions, please reach out to your assigned safety consultant or contact us.
