While many non-essential businesses have closed down due to COVID-19, a novel coronavirus that has spread all over the globe, many places of work remain open like grocery stores, pharmacies, and restaurants for dine-out service. These essential workers are putting their health on the line to ensure those at home have the necessary supplies. 

 

If you're required to work during this global health crisis, it's important to ensure you protect yourself at the workplace from the virus and other potential injuries. 

 

No matter what the job is, practice these safety tips when at work:

 
  1. Follow safety rules - most workplaces will have safety guides available. Be sure you read and follow the recommended safety precautions.
  2. Wear the gear - if your workplace requires you to wear safety gear like hard hats, hairnets, or steel-toed boots, be sure you purchase the recommended gear and wear them properly. 
  3. Protect your back - if you find yourself needing to pick up heavy items, always use your legs to lift and not your back. Using your back can lead to strain and pain down the road. 
  4. Wash your hands - the world is currently fighting against a novel coronavirus called COVID-19 that has life-threatening impacts to many. To protect yourself and avoid spreading the virus, wash your hands frequently and for at least 20 seconds with soap and water. Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands, especially areas like your eyes, nose, and mouth. 
  5. Get the training - partake in workplace safety training to ensure you're equipped for any situation. 
 

The last thing you'd want to deal with during these unprecedented times is to face an unnecessary workplace injury. Be sure you're staying safe and protected while on the job.
