Talk To Your People About COVID-19

Important Information For Your Crews

Coronavirus or COVID-19 is here. With the incredible speed at which things are changing around us, it’s necessary for your people to stay healthy and focused, so the job gets done and life returns to normal. Good, clear information for your crews will help them stay calm, healthy, and productive.

The Weekly Safety Meeting below walks your people through how to keep themselves, their co-workers, and their families as safe as possible. There aren’t any new or cutting-edge solutions, but we’ve packaged the CDC’s ideas and recommendations in a way that will make sense. Just like every Weekly Safety Meeting, it’s easy to read and easy to understand.

Helping you explain safety and safe actions to your people is what we do. Now, we’re happy to provide a Safety Meeting about COVID-19. As our owner’s grandmother used to say, “use it in the best of health.”

Practical Actions Your Employees Can Take

"Not knowing" is one of the key drivers of fear and anxiety. Neither of those make for better employees or better business. Giving your employees good, actionable information that they can understand and use will help them stay calm. Calm employees are better for business and better for the community. Although these Meetings are written with construction and manufacturing environments in mind, the principles apply just as well to your family and your neighbors. Please give a copy to anyone who might benefit.

You can find a very brief blog post on COVID-19 from our president here.
