Frequent Furniture World contributing author David McMahon provides readers with a short checklist for mitigating COVID risks right now in your stores.
With businesses opening back up and with surges in COVID-19 numbers, a huge risk businesses face is if they get an employee or customer with COVID. In addition to the health risks, this could lead to lost sales and negative-press that will cause current and future loss revenue. Here are some quick non-political thoughts.
Processes for safety, minimizing risk and increasing close rate…
Safety measure for the organization:
Use a greeter with customers and match them with a salesperson, after.
Contactless temperature checks for customers offered.
Branded masks handed to customers (use required).
Employee check in procedures – Safety office / contracted nurse (not the manager)
Check and record employees temperature
Hand sanitizer with instructions to apply multiple times per day.
Visual on no health symptoms.
Sign-off, if normal
If not normal: work at home day with tasks assigned.
Office proximity: separate and/or require masks.
Internal meetings: held with zooms, masks, or on the floor where separation in doable.
