One hundred companies have now had their plans and procedures for a healthy and safe workplace approved as part of NJBIA’s Healthy Business Certification online course, launched last fall.

“We are thrilled that New Jersey businesses are continuing to make workplace safety and health a priority for their customers, staff and vendors,” said NJBIA President and CEO Michele Siekerka. “This is a rigorous course and having so many businesses pass muster should install confidence for all those who frequent these establishments.”

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.

A NJBIA Healthy Business Certificate is then issued, along with a safety decal to display at the business location.

With a recent law enacted that creates a rebuttable presumption that essential employees who contract COVID-19 did so at work, NJBIA continues to urge businesses to have formal sanitation protocols in place as they reopen to the public.

“Protecting customers and employees is a priority for business owners,” Siekerka added. “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.”

“The course offered valuable information to help us adjust to the new ‘normal’ we are facing as a business in regard to safety standards/protocols related to COVID-19,” said James Canning, owner of GoodSports USA, an indoor sports and family entertainment center in Wall Township.

“We feel the health and safety of both our employees and customers is one of our top priorities. We thank NJBIA for offering this certification!”

“Having this certificate and emblem in place for all of our employees and visitors to see brings a great amount of satisfaction and peace of mind,” said Joe Hoffman, vice president of environmental, health and safety at Chelton House, a food manufacturer and distributor in Swedesboro.

“This certification adds just another fundamental value of good things that we are doing at Chelten House during these trying times.”

The three-hour course is available to NJBIA members and nonmembers alike. For more information on the training course, click here.
