In all of our imagination, who would have thought we would be experiencing these devastating effects of this horrid Pandemic. Eight months ago, we were enjoying a strong and vibrant economy, and within days all came to a screeching halt!
Small Businesses not only had to deal with the acute reality of economic loss but the challenges of how to effectively and efficiently deal with the health and welfare concerns of the employees. While a business can imagine the horrible consequences of an act of nature, experiencing it is another story!
While most small businesses have general ideas about health, safety, and control, this Pandemic has brought this need to know to a heightened and intense level. Today requirements from the agencies like CDC, OSHA, DOH, and the like are now requiring businesses to have a kind of expertise never before even imagined!
The ability for small businesses to bring healthy workplace programs into reality is both an expensive proposition and a challenge. While larger companies have enjoyed the merits and rewards of having industrial health programs, this has been a fantasy for small businesses that have not had the means to do so.
