We are all living in unprecedented times. Overnight, our personal and professional lives were turned upside down. The key to thriving in situations like this is preparedness. That is something the All Hazards Training Center excels at and we are here to ensure that your organization or business does too.

We would like to share information and resources that provide a wealth of information on planning, preparing, and responding to the coronavirus. As always, please let us know if there is anything we can do to help your organization thrive during this crisis and beyond.

Protect Yourself

The best thing you can do in the face of COVID-19 is to take precautions to protect yourself, your family, and your community. There are simple things you can do to help keep yourself and others healthy, including:

Wash Your Hands

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food.

Clean Frequently

Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.

Avoid Touching Your Face

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Stay At Home

Stay home as much as possible, especially if sick; but if essential to leave the house, put distance between yourself and other people (at least 6 feet).

Cover Your Cough or Sneeze

Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

Protect Your Workplace

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) offers guidance for companies to prepare themselves and their workers for pandemic events such as the coronavirus. Employers who have planned for influenza pandemics, may need to just update plans to address the exposure risks, sources of exposure, routes of transmission, and other unique characteristics of SARS-CoV-2 (i.e., compared to pandemic influenza viruses).   

The information included in OSHA’s publication, Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19 (OSHA 3990), can be used for guidance for planning purposes to help identify risk levels in workplace settings and to determine any appropriate control measures to implement. There are specific steps that can be taken to reduce workers’ risk exposure to SARS-CoV-2 including:

Develop

Workplace Flexibilities
