AH Earns Infectious Disease Site Certification Through NJBIA
AH is proud to announce the designation as an Infectious Disease Certified Site by The New Jersey Business and Industry Association (NJBIA).
With the uncertainty running rampant in society today, AH wanted to make sure that staff could feel safe when they return to work at AH. The course topics include how to create a step-by-step healthy workplace guide, best cleaning and disinfecting practices, on-site health screening procedures, PPE requirements, and more.
“Protecting customers and employees is a priority for business owners,” said NJBIA President and CEO Michele Siekerka. “With this new law that could result in increased worker’s compensation insurance costs, it’s even more incumbent for business owners to certify their best practices for a safe and healthy workplace.”
A Workplace Infectious Disease Prevention training course, administered by PeakPerformance, introduces businesses and their employees to the basic practices of identifying, reducing, eliminating and reporting hazards associated with their work. The best practices are derived from OSHA, CDC and WHO guidance.
Attendees work with instructors to develop workplace procedures and a documented plan. At the completion of the course, they submit their plan to be certified.
AH President & CEO, Bob Waller, CAE expressed his excitement about receiving the certification for AH. “I am thrilled to be able to offer a clean and safe work environment to our staff,” said Waller. “AH is the 55th company to have earned the certification in New Jersey and we are proud to display the safety seal on our front door.”
The three-hour course is available to NJBIA members and nonmembers alike, and for the time being, it’s limited to one employee per company, per class to make it accessible to as many companies as possible. Learn more about the program here.
