Food & beverage workers deserve to be healthy and safe this winter season. To ensure that the well-being of employees is of utmost importance, employers should have a plan in place ready for the upcoming cold, flu, and COVID season.
ROC Asheville is here to assist employee in drafting their own plan in place for the season by using our own “mise en place” method to come up with a policy!
We at ROC Asheville believe that it is important now more than ever for restaurants, bars, and cafes to have a plan in place for all workers when it comes to looking our for their health and safety during this up coming winter season. As we all know, the winter months are when everyone is not only most susceptible to getting the cold, flu, and now COVID, but it is also when sickness can spread the most.
What do we mean by having a plan in place? We mean that employers have effectively communicated with their staff what the protocols are for when an employee is sick and what they should do, when an employee has tested positive for COVID and what the business plans to do, and what measures are being taken to prevent the spread of illness.
