As communities nationwide plan to begin lifting shelter in place’ orders, Allied Universal is helping clients plan and prepare for return to the workplace.

Recently, President Donald Trump gave state governors guidance on reopening state economies in the coming months. These guidelines for opening America back up outline specific phases for states to gradually ease their lockdowns.

“Now is the time to start thinking, preparing and launching a return to workplace plan,” said Steve Jones, chairman and CEO of Allied Universal.  “Without a cure or vaccine for COVID-19, preventing further exposure and transmission will continue to be essential.” 

Allied Universal is sharing best practices, guidance and tools during this crisis to help businesses provide a safe, virus-free environment. This guidance includes:

  • Risk mitigation planning and resources to support businesses’ return to workplace strategy.
  • Best practices on workplace signage, employee and visitor traffic flow and maintaining a clean and disinfected workplace. 
  • Temperature pre-screening services for occupants entering the property that is tailored to the facility. 

“Some of our clients need to be prepared for employee and visitor screenings, which require varying levels of equipment (temperature gauges, physical barriers) and personnel protective equipment,” Jones said. “There is no time to waste since some elements of a return to workplace plan may require advanced lead time.”
