How to Keep Yourself and Others Safe on the Job

  • november social 11 12 safety blog

The wellbeing of our associates, many of whom are essential workers, is always at the forefront of our minds and the driving force behind our safety efforts. That's why we've taken the American Staffing Association (ASA) Safely Back to Work Pledge to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.


We've ensured that our associates and their workplaces have the tools and procedures to support this commitment. But that can't be the entire solution. The rest is up to you, the workers who use the COVID protocols and equipment every day. Here's how you can help defeat this terrible enemy, and get our "normal lives" back faster.


Mask up — For associates and Integrity Opportunity Center staff, face masks are required at all times while on the worksite. But to be effective, they must be worn the right way, entirely covering your nose and mouth.


Wash hands often — with soap/water or hand sanitizer, especially:

  • Before touching your nose, mouth or eyes
  • Before touching food
  • After using the restroom
  • After handling your mask
  • After touching frequently used surfaces such as door handles
  • After caring for someone who's sick


Cover coughs and sneezes — with a tissue or the inside of your elbow. Don't spit. Throw used tissues in the trash.


Frequently disinfect multi-user surfaces — tables, desks, chairs, doorknobs, light switches, handles, phones, keyboards, etc.


Follow the social distancing rules — at your worksite, including traffic control barriers, sneeze guards, and 3 feet of separation between co-workers.


Check your health every day — for symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, stuffed up or runny nose, head or muscle ache, nausea, diarrhea, nausea, fatigue, loss of taste or smell.


If you're sick, take immediate action — get tested for COVID-19, see a doctor and most importantly, don't come to work until you're well again.


Use our telemed online doctor consultations — and Integrity will reimburse you for any COVID-related visits. We offer Amwell for staff enrolled in a BCBS plan and AllyHealth for all other staff and associates and their families.


Manage pandemic stress — with Integrity's free EAP counseling through HealthAdvocate. Contact for more information on how to access telemed and EAP services.


Eat healthy — especially foods rich in vitamins. There's some evidence that deficiencies in nutrients such as vitamin B and vitamin D make you more susceptible to getting COVID-19 and having worse symptoms if you do get it.


As with any battle, the key to success in beating COVID-19 is a unified team. When everyone follows these procedures, we can all go safely back to work, and begin rebuilding our lives.
