safety precautions for covid 19 in office

Workplaces and offices in few areas after the commencement of Unlock 1.0 have started to reopen even though the COVID-19 cases continue to rise. Many professionals don’t have comforts of work from home. Safety measures for these people are of grave concern as the pandemic continues to be in existence. The offices are taking measures for sanitization and thermal scanning at the entry points, but it’s an individual’s duty and the necessity to take special measures for self-protection. Here are a few things one should take care of:

Before leaving home:

  1. Never forget to sanitize hands and wear a mask before stepping out.
  2. Always carry tissues/hand towel, hand-sanitizer, paper soap/soap bar for personal use. It is best to avoid sharing these things.
  3. Carry the required stationery and cutlery including water bottles, mugs, plates etc. Also, don’t forget to have your mobile charger and power bank handy to avoid borrowing it from someone.
  4. Commuting by personal vehicle is preferred. Sanitize the door handle of the car or handle and the seat of your two-wheeler before use.

On reaching office:

  1. Follow the office rules & guidelines, by sanitizing your hands before entering. Few places have started thermal scanning at the entry points.
  2. If your office requires a signature or digital entry, don’t forget to sanitize immediately after as these are the most frequent touch-points.
  3. It is best to take the stairs if possible, as it is easier to maintain social distance. Avoid touching the walls and rails. If lift needs to be taken, do not touch the lift buttons with bare hands; use a tooth-pick or a tissue instead to press the required floor button. Dispose of the object once used. Make sure there is enough distance maintained between you and other possible users. Also, everyone should be wearing a mask.
  4. Before touching your workstation, disinfect the areas with the help of your sanitizer.
  5. Avoid shaking hands with people. Maintain at least 6 feet distance from your colleagues and keep a social distance during meetings or breaks.
  6. It is best to carry your food and sit alone while having it.
  7. If you happen to touch any doorknob or handles, sanitize your hands or wash them immediately.
  8. Public hygiene should also be maintained. Cover your mouth while sneezing or coughing.
  9. Wash your hands properly for at least 20 seconds and avoid touching your face. Wearing your mask throughout office hours is recommended.

Back home:

  1. Follow the same measures as mentioned before while taking lift/stairs, and disinfecting the car/ two-wheeler handle and seats.
  2. On reaching home, sanitize your hands immediately before touching anything. Go for a bath and set laundry separately.
  3. Disinfect your mobile along with other things you carried to the office.
