Employee Guidelines for a Safe Workplace

Our Workplace Environments

Social Distancing
  • Posted signs remind employees and students of social distancing requirements.
  • Floor markings identify six-foot parameters in high-traffic areas where waiting lines for services form.
  • Workstations, conference rooms, reception areas and common areas may be reconfigured to provide distancing depending on a department’s needs.
  • One-way directional traffic flow is considered where possible, where practical.
  • Guidelines for common areas such as kitchens follow social distancing protocols.
  • Sharing of phones, headsets, desks, etc. is prohibited. Adaptations and cleaning protocols are implemented as necessary if sharing is required.
  • Number of people in an elevator is limited according to social distancing standards.
Enhanced Cleaning and Building Maintenance
  • High-touch areas benefit from more frequent cleaning schedules.
  • Trash regularly emptied avoids overflow of cleaning supplies.
  • Public and individual locations benefit from deep cleaning.
  • HVAC filters have been upgraded and are changed more frequently.
  • Structural barriers are assessed and modified wherever possible.
