Since printing and support activities have been deemed by many states and municipalities as an essential or life sustaining business, it is imperative that printing operations critical infrastructure industries have a special responsibility in these times to continue operations.

This means companies need to implement measures during the response to the COVID-19 emergency to protect the public health and wellbeing of their employees. Instituting safe work measures for employees during this time is essential for them, their family, and others they may encounter. Having these measures also demonstrates the commitment on the part of the company to ensure safety practices are being followed. These actions include cleaning the workplace, encouraging proper hand washing, practicing social distancing, and other hygiene procedures.

In order to assist printing operations in developing and implementing a program, SGIA has prepared a Sanitation Guide that is based on guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The guide contains useful information that will significantly reduce the possibility of an employee becoming infected and transmitting it to their coworkers.
