WJR Business Beat Transcript

Good morning.

As business owners, we are faced with the daunting challenge of keeping our staff and customers safe during this crisis. To help us understand how to do just that, our good friend, John Ezzo, president and CEO of New Image Building Services, offered us valuable insight and guidance into how to do just that.

John, keeping our offices clean in the past might’ve been about appearances, but today it’s really about health and safety. And given that providing a safe environment is a weakest link equation, can you break down for us some of the best practices that we need to deploy?

Good question, Jeff. Best practices are, the first line of defense is good access control. Lots of our clients are using like an app on the phone for people to answer health screening questions and travel questions and so forth, and then get the green light cleared for entrance. When they enter the building, they have their temperature taken, of course, depending on their systems so that the client always knows who’s in the building, what time they came in, what time they left.

And then second of all is a comprehensive program of disinfection. Touch points, your door entrances, the coffee machines, reception desk.

Another good best practice is providing stations throughout the buildings where people can obtain disinfectant wipes or a spray bottle of disinfectant and disposable wipes to clean their work surface that they want to, or their phone or their computer keyboard, their mouse.

In addition to that, most of our clients are having us go through and do a deep clean and disinfection of the workstations once or twice per week.

So, with those things combined, the physical social distancing, the touchpoint cleaning, the readily-accessible disinfection materials, and most importantly, the access control, is providing a safe environment for the folks to return to the office and be productive.

Great advice. John Ezzo, president and CEO of New Image Building Services. Thank you, John.

I’m Jeff Sloan, founder and CEO of StartupNation.com, and that’s today’s Business Beat on the Great Voice of the Great Lakes, WJR.
