DELRAY BEACH, Fla., July 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Infection Control Consulting Services (ICCS), a nationally renowned consulting firm, announces the launch of a dedicated division to support non-healthcare businesses as they work to navigate the challenges, requirements, and ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
While ICCS is primarily recognized for its work providing infection prevention and control services to a variety of healthcare facilities, the firm has a history of assisting businesses in other industries. As stay-at-home orders expired and businesses began to reopen, ICCS saw a significant uptick in requests from companies seeking epidemiologists trained in infection prevention to provide guidance concerning how to safely and properly resume operations and stay open.
The increase in demand for services has necessitated the forming of a division dedicated to helping non-healthcare companies, says ICCS Founder and President Phenelle Segal, RN, CIC, FAPIC.
“These businesses are hiring our certified infection preventionists to benefit from the vast experience we have accrued over the course of the past four decades, which includes pandemic preparedness and management during crises such SARS, MERS, H1N1, Ebola, and now the novel coronavirus,” Segal says. “We understand the stress companies are going through as they attempt to follow federal and state safety guidelines, which are often vague and confusing. Our team is ready to help business owners and their management teams determine what steps to take to keep employees and customers safe while reassuring an understandably nervous public.”
ICCS services available to non-healthcare companies include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Development and assistance with implementation of a written plan and protocols
- Social distancing
- Screening of employees and visitors
- Appropriate purchasing and usage of personal protective equipment (PPE), including face mask requirements
- Environmental cleaning and disinfection, including product selection
- Managing COVID-19 positive employees and/or those in contact with positive individuals
- Return-to-work rules for employees diagnosed with COVID-19
