As we prepare to get our collective facilities back up to speed while questions still exist as to what the long and short term health effects of COVID-19 will have moving forward, we here at the Gateway Magazine spent the month wondering how best to navigate the safety of the workplace as doors start to open more widely and regularly.
How do we prepare to welcome employees and visitors alike to our space and ensure a safe environment? It’s an interesting (albeit stressful) time and we don’t necessarily have the “right” and “wrong” answers to any of it. That said, there are certainly proactive measures all of us can take to make for a cleaner and more sanitary workplace. Nobody is perfect, but improvement is easy to achieve simply by making the attempt. In this issue you hold in your hands we outline some ways we’ve come up with to service our facilities and keep them and all of the people accessing them, safer, cleaner, and healthier.
How are you navigating this line of action and thinking? We’d love to hear your tips and any unique ways you’ve worked cleanliness and maintenance into a priority role on the shop’s operative schedule.
As a country, and industry, we’re all in this fight together. Together we’ll navigate these turbulent waters that are “the times,” and together we’ll bounce back and prosper once all this has past. And it will. Strange hurdles are always cleared, the end result is the undefined variable. We’re stronger in numbers, so let’s continue to communicate and actively engage with one another in order to keep our lines primed and at the ready.
