Economies, major trades and other critical services have also taken a massive operational hit due to the widespread paranoia caused by the lack of awareness among the masses.

We highly recommend that you take these precautionary measures and follow these guidelines to make sure that you and your team stays productive and safe.
How to get your workplace ready for COVID-19?
Currently, there is no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease. Healthcare practitioners and organizations suggest that a plausible way out of it is preventing contamination of the environment around you.
Here are some preventive measures for coronavirus that you should follow to help contain and restrict the spread of infections at your workplace:
1. Wash your hands
You should place soaps, hand wash, and alcohol-based sanitizers at easily accessible places in your workplace. Encourage your co-worker’s to wash hands as soon as they enter the premises. Friyey Space’s are adequately equipped with hand wash for your safety.
2. Use tissues
If you or your employees are suffering from a runny nose or cough, ensure that they are wearing face masks. Place tissues at accessible places with closed bins for easy disposal.
3. Reorganize your workplace setting
Try to maintain social distancing between employees. This should be done for employees or anyone who is sneezing or coughing. Friyey request’s you to occupy one table per person or maintain a distance of about 1 metre, so that your co-worker’s are not in close contact to those suffering from symptoms.
4. Prepare a response plan
If you notice anyone with the symptoms, you must be equipped with a separate room to safely isolate and quarantine such individuals. Please have a certified medical expert brief your employees about such procedures and precautionary isolation measures.
5. Work at home
Co-worker’s experiencing even the slightest of symptoms should isolate themselves and the ones around them should take up immediate preventive measures for Coronavirus at home.
6. Avoid business trips
If there are any chances of risk, your trips must be postponed or replaced with an online meeting. If it’s absolutely necessary, then please go through govt. authorized travel advisories for the place you are visiting.
7. Prefer online meetings
You should avoid face-to-face meetings or public conferences if it is possible. Replace such an interaction with a teleconference or a video conference, thus eliminating the prospect of contamination if any.
8. If unwell, rest
Employees with the slightest symptoms must stay at home. Coronavirus illness spreads through respiratory droplets released while sneezing or coughing. If sick employees do attend work, wear a mask to prevent further contamination of the environment.
9. Maintain hygiene
Promote hygiene and general awareness about Coronavirus with the help of posters at workplaces. Combine this with other tools of communication like emails, drills and conduct briefings to offer guidance by safety and occupational health officers.
10. Clean everything at regular intervals
Remember to wipe desks, tables, keyboards, mobile phones, any other surfaces, and objects regularly using a disinfectant. Friyey Space has taken steps to frequently clean desks and chairs.
Adhering to these points, you must adopt precautionary measures right away. Irrespective of whether COVID-19 has been detected around you or not, such a proactive and preventive approach can protect you, your employees, your contractors, and the customers from any possible Coronavirus related contingency. So don’t wait, act up today!
