Combating COVID-19 is a collective effort that all of us, and not just medical professionals, have a responsibility for. We wish everyone health and safety and believe that we will be able to overcome this obstacle together. While fear and uncertainty are understandable sentiments, We encourage everyone to confront this situation with calmness and reason and, more importantly, care for and support each other and extend compassion to those who’re in need.
PREVENTION AT WORK
As employees commute from different neighborhoods and spend a great amount of time with each other at work, we as a company have taken measures perform thorough routine disinfection everyday before and after work hours. However, employees should also partake in this effort and are encouraged to consider the following measures to do their part in staying healthy and containing the spread of illnesses.
KEEP A SAFE DISTANCE
When meeting and speaking, keep at least 2 meters between each other. Avoid common physical contact such as handshakes. If there’s a need to cough and sneeze, leave the room if possible and cover mouth with elbow, then wash hands thoroughly before returning to the room.
Regularly wash hands for at least 20 seconds with hot water and plenty of soap. Also be sure to clean your wrists and lower arm areas if exposed. Do not touch eyes or nose without washing hands first. Wash around and under nostril area with hot water and soap as well.
WASH HANDS AND FACE DILIGENTLY
AVOID UNECESSARY GATHERINGS
Resort to conference calls and remote meeting sessions whenever possible. Avoid gatherings during breaks or in the kitchen during lunch hours. Stay put in your departmental area as much as possible and avoid movements between teams, departments, or floors unless when necessary.
Maintain an organized and hygienic set up in your personal cubicle or office. Declutter and dispose any unneeded files, tools, and belongings to decrease available surface for virus to inhabit. Wipe down desk, chair, and equipment with provided alcohol wipes throughout the day.
KEEP YOUR WORK STATION CLEAN
RESPONSIBLE USE OF RESOURCES
Please make good use of company resources provided to combat this situation, such as hand sanitizers, alcohol wipes, and soap around the office. But be mindful of others’ need as well and only use what is needed due to the unpredictability of resource availability.
Report to HR should you sense that a co-worker might be ill or if you feel unwell yourself. Please avoid doing so in person and instead report via email to mitigate physical contact. nyone who feels ill should immediately seek medical assistance and be isolated until clearance
