Preventing the Spread of COVID-19 in Workplaces

Preventing the Spread of COVID-19 in Workplaces

Many businesses and individuals are returning to in-person settings after over a year of navigating the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizations across the country have a continued responsibility to keep their employees and customers as safe as possible.

This includes adapting or updating policies and procedures based on federal, state and local public health regulations and recommendations.

Here’s a brief summary of ways that businesses can help prevent and reduce the spread of COVID-19 in workplaces.

Prevent and Reduce Transmission

COVID-19 preparedness, response and control plans should be specific to the workplace and include controls that eliminate or reduce potential exposures.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides guidance to help prevent workplace exposure. This includes:

In addition to these recommendations, all workers should continue to wear a mask and social distance when possible.

The CDC regularly updates its guidance for businesses and employers. These recommendations are presented in detail, allowing businesses to better adapt specific actions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Additionally, Training Centers and CPR Instructors should review HSI’s Emergency Care COVID-19 Resource Documents for guidance on in-person training.

Virtual CPR Training

HSI’s Remote Skills Verification (RSV) can help keep your employees safe whether you’re business is going back to an office environment or your team remains working from home.

RSV allows students to get full certification in emergency care training from anywhere using our proprietary online portal. Instructors and students meet virtually for live, online hands-on skills assessment after the student completes blended, online training.
