At Blackbird Realty and Management, we know that the focus of most people is on preventing the spread of Corona, cold, flu and other viruses right now.
Thankfully, our team has always taken the right steps to responsibly prevent the spread of viruses during by following this protocol during flu season, and all year long.
Our Protocol For Corona Virus And Flu Season
Our team members must wash their hands often – This is by far one of the most effective ways to stop the spread of germs. After every break, lunches, bathroom breaks, and between customer appointments, members of the Blackbird Realty and Management team must wash their hands for at least 20 seconds before returning to work.
We use hand sanitizer frequently – Besides requiring our team members to wash their hands frequently, we also require our employees who interact directly with customers to use hand sanitizer before each appointment.
All of our equipment is cleaned between appointments – Another important thing that we do to prevent the spread of the flu and other bacteria during the year is to require all of our employees to wipe down their equipment between appointments with anti-bacterial wipes which are provided in our company vehicles. This “extra layer” of cleaning helps to ensure that our equipment is clean / germ-free before one of our team members enters a home or location.
Trash removal policy – Any trash that we remove from a customer’s location must be tied off in a trash bag, removed from the building that we’re servicing, and disposed of by our staff immediately.
All field technicians use disposable gloves – During the process of completing a job for a customer, our team members will be wearing disposable gloves. This enables field technicians to properly dispose of air filters and other debris from customers' homes without having to touch those items with their skin.
We ask about flu-like symptoms and other illnesses – During our initial conversations with a homeowner, one of the first questions that our team members will ask is if anyone in the home is currently sick. If people in the home are sick, the appointment will need to be rescheduled so that our team members can enter the home safely.
Disinfect policy – Before bringing anything into the Blackbird Realty and Management office, or one of our customer's homes, we will go the “extra mile” to disinfect those items. This is another step that we frequently take to stop the spread of germs and other viruses all year long.
Our employee “call in sick” policy – Besides the steps mentioned in this post, our employees are also instructed to communicate with us anytime they are experiencing flu-like symptoms. This policy keeps sick employees at home so that they can recover and helps to eliminate the threat of a sick employee entering our office or a customer’s home.
We work electronically – Last of all, but most important, one of the most important things that we do to prevent the spread of viruses is to work electronically. This enables us to avoid contact with customers and do our part to prevent the spread of viruses.
