Reopening checklist

Use this reopening checklist to protect your business, your employees, and your customers from COVID-19.

As COVID-19 lockdown restrictions are eased and businesses reopen, employers must take measures to protect the well-being of their workers and reduce their liability should they become sick. Use this checklist to determine what precautionary measures your business can or should take when reopening during or after the pandemic.

This page will discuss:

  • Reopening checklist requirements
  • The purpose of a reopening checklist
  • Benefits of using a reopening checklist app

What should be included in a reopening checklist?

After businesses were required to shut down to slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, many are reopening and resuming normal operations. A reopening checklist should help employers do this safely to protect both their employees and the public. The checklist should ensure they are up-to-date with the latest guidelines from the CDC, evaluate what PPE employees might need and what employee or visitor screening is feasible, conduct thorough cleaning and sanitization procedures, and assess what staggered scheduling or other social-distancing measures will be most effective to ensure the health and safety of workers.

Who should use a reopening checklist and why?

Any establishment with a brick-and-mortar facility should follow any CDC and OSHA guidelines for allowing employees and customers back into their buildings. A checklist helps ensure that no steps are missed when considering the actions necessary to ensure a safe working environment, which will limit employer liability should employees or customers become sick.

Why use a reopening checklist app?

The pandemic has sped up digital transformation for many businesses. A reopening app enables users to complete the checklist quickly and efficiently using their mobile device and share data in real time with business owners and other stakeholders. With a mobile app, you can also attach photos directly to your checklist to document compliance efforts and speed up verification that safety protocols have been followed at all times.

It is so easy to use that our training period is greatly shortened. Data quality is very important to us so it can’t be overly complicated. We still get the same data quality regardless if it is a junior or senior data collector.
