Member Safety Plan
We understand people are increasingly worried about their health and safety while at work in wake of the Covid-19 situation.
At WorkAbility, the health and safety of your team and our community members are essential to us, and we’ll continue to stay in communication with members regarding safeguards and precautions related to this issue.
Additional Precautions Currently In Place
We like to share some best practices that we’re implementing right here at all of our satellite locations. Please review them below, and if you have any additional tips, we’d like to hear them.
If a case is reported in office/building: If the building, our members, or the public health department informs us of a suspected or confirmed case within our building or office, we will follow protocol closely. That protocol will depend on the details of the situation, but we anticipate it will include closing the building to disinfect any potentially affected areas and quarantining and monitoring anyone who potentially came in contact with the patient while they were contagious for 14 days. As soon as the building is appropriately cleaned, we will allow anyone not still in quarantine to return to the office following CDC and public health department direction.
Placing hand sanitizer at the front desk, or near the entrance.
Providing disposable sanitizer wipes as well as sanitizing spray and paper towels for members to wipe down their workstations prior to and after using.
Switching to hands-free soap dispensers and garbage receptacles.
Advising members not to wash dishes or silverware by hand, and requiring dishwasher use.
Recommending members bring their own silverware or cups if they are uncomfortable sharing dishes at this time.
Hanging signs with basic protective measures.
Advising members to let management know immediately if shared areas such as kitchen or bathrooms are unkempt.
- Advising members to stay home if they have a fever, respiratory symptoms, or believe they are sick.
We are also increasing our janitorial efforts by using cleaning products that the CDC and WHO have recommended as effective in neutralizing Coronavirus.

Ways to Keep Yourself Safe
In addition to the precautions that we’re taking on a company-wide level, we’d like to share some steps that each individual can take to help contain the spread of sickness.
These tips are provided by the CDC and can be viewed in their entirety here.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick
Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
Wear a facemask only if you are sick. If you’re not sick, do not purchase or wear a facemask. Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers.
If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
We know that the spread of sickness can cause unease, but we’re taking every precaution to keep ourselves and our members safe while the Covid-19 virus remains a concern. We’ll update our policies and precautions as needed through direction provided from local and national authorities.
