Contagion Control - Facility Management
As our society continues to be impacted by pandemics, standards play an essential role in helping to establish a safe work environment for customers, employees and all stakeholders. The market place is filled with government and other industry-related guidelines for dealing with pandemic outbreaks, but none of them are third party validated or include a list of mandatory requirements. This means that some facilities have numerous controls in place, while others have nothing! Employers have a legal obligation to ensure the safety of their employees! Certification is a great way to take action and demonstrate due diligence.
The only way to gain employee and customer confidence and prove that the proper measures have been taken to protect their safety is to follow a standard and have a third-party inspection.
Two standards are available depending on your work environment:
- CCFM 110 Retail - For those working within a retail environment.
- CCFM 120 Services - For those in an office service type environment. This includes those that manage the service and may have on-site services (e.g. financial, auditing, HVAC, data centers)
Each of the standards include core requirements around employee hygiene, sanitization, physical distancing restroom maintenance along with facility-specific controls such as customer and employee assessment and on-site visit protocols.
