BV: COVID/PANDEMIC Prevention Policy & Practices 06/01/2021

Preview

BERT has endeavored to provide the most comprehensive course deliverables as possible.  Government agencies such as OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency), CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and state & local agencies will have later or potentially conflicting directives.  The Safety Officer for my facility should be continually aware of any newer or conflicting information and update me as necessary on my organization’s position.  

At Broadview, our patients should expect that their quality of life and safety be paramount in the minds of all who come onsite for any reason.  The following directives are assigned to staff, contractors, and visitors with the absolute expectation that it is everyone’s individual responsibility to be as diligent as possible in following good safety practices to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 to each other, or to our patients.

  • EVERYONE (Staff/Contractors/Visitors)
    1. Masks (not scarves, etc.) are required from the time exiting a vehicle to leaving property.
    2. Always maintain six-foot social distancing.
    3. Temperatures will be taken and logged daily. It must read 100.3 or less to enter or begin work.
