These past few months have certainly been difficult and there are new challenges to be faced as we all begin to welcome back our employees and customers. To prepare City Wide of Boston’s physical office, we used our own Facility Response Plan Checklist, which helped us to welcome back our team with confidence that we had all the bases covered. Some of the things we did include setting up additional hand and device sanitizing stations, posting hygiene posters throughout the office, adding incremental cleaning and disinfecting protocols and promoting social distancing by relocating some desks and placing reminders near people’s workstations. Our team had fun choosing their own social distancing signs! Check out some of their creative options below and please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for copies of these signs!
Our goal is to be a resource. The City Wide of Boston Task Force meets daily and continually reviews the key information sources: CDC, Mass.gov, OSHA and EPA for updates. Our Account Manager team is given all consolidated information with a summary, key links and documents so they are prepared to support our clients as Massachusetts works through the phases of reopening.
We have helped manage and implement:
- Updated cleaning and disinfecting plans
- Day Porter services for frequently touched surfaces
- PPE supplies
- Transportation cleaning and disinfecting plans & schedules
- Plexiglass barriers/sneeze guards
- Hygiene signage
- Communication plans
See what our current clients have said about us!
“I was on the phone with a client going over our Facility Response Plan guidance and she was blown away by how much information she was unaware of. With the information that I have been given from the City Wide Task Force, I was able to help guide her on things she can do in the common areas of their buildings, as well as guidance on how to handle the kitchen and cafeteria. The most important part was the ability to provide her with the posters to hang though out the building. Even more important was providing her with the control plan as was unaware this needed to be done. She has made it clear that without City Wide of Boston she would be lost.”
“My contact was getting pressure from her boss to come up with a plan and information. I sent an email with the links to the CDC and OSHA as well as assurance that we can help them ensure the facility is safe and ready to open. When she sent the information to her boss, they were put at ease about reopening their facility.”
“We managed an electrostatic disinfectant service where my contact had called at 9:00am and we had a crew there by 10:30am. She was very appreciative not only for our response time but our knowledge of what to do in this situation.”
Many companies are overwhelmed with the wealth of information and guidelines that are constantly updated by the CDC and Mass.gov. City Wide of Boston has done the research and we are here to provide a resource of knowledge as you work to open your facility. Below are links that we feel provide an overview of the phases of re-opening and how to open your building in compliance with the safety standards.
