To make preparing to resume operations amid the COVID-19 pandemic easier, the Small Business Association of Michigan has developed a road map and resources to assist small businesses.

“Getting back to work will require changes for small businesses that could be overwhelming,” said association President Brian Calley. “We want to make this transition as simple as possible, and that’s why we created a guide to getting back to work safely and resources to source personal protection equipment that will be needed. We hope these resources are helpful to small businesses during this difficult time.”

The Get Back to Work Safely Guide includes tips and resources for issues that small businesses may face including revising employee policies and employee handbooks, as well as talking with employees about new expectations. The guide also provides checklists on cleaning and health screenings as well as other considerations small businesses may need to take on in their facilities.

The need for personal protective equipment in the workplace will be critical for a safe work environment for the foreseeable future. To ease the ability to obtain PPE, the Small Business Association of Michigan has compiled a list of sources where members can secure hand sanitizer, masks, barriers, gloves, face shields, gowns and shoe coverings, and workplace safety posters.

“SBAM is working hard to provide support to make next steps easier for small businesses as they try to look toward the future,” said association CEO Rob Fowler. “We hope these resources make the road ahead a bit easier for our members.”

A recent survey of Small Business Association of Michigan members revealed that 14% of Michigan small businesses are not confident they will survive the COVID-19 pandemic, and 60% of those surveyed have had to lay off at least one employee.
