Although suggestions, mandates and rules seem to be changing daily, there are some general things that managers and those of us still working can do to make it safer not only physically but psychologically and emotionally as well.

This webinar is focused on the person to person aspect of dealing with this pandemic in the workplace.  There are suggestions for helping individuals stay at home, or be safer if they opt to stay at work.  We discuss Management’s role in re-arranging the workspace, in making it safer, in offering various forms of protection – and in protecting those from being harmed due to prejudice born out of fear.

Reminders are offered to sanitize the workplace – often – and well.  In this time when we don’t know how long the virus lives on surfaces, we need to have an abundance of caution.

As the situation changes people will either be asked to stay at home – businesses will be forced to close at least temporarily – or it will become safer for us to convene together again.  There are suggestions for how to handle both ends of this spectrum.

Fear is real.  People handle it differently.  Logic must prevail while at the same time allowing people to have their own emotional responses.
