Global public health organization NSF International has launched a program to help businesses, schools, and other organizations reopen and operate safely following COVID-19 pandemic shutdowns.

The Checked by NSF program includes a variety of services including a smart phone app that details COVID-19 prevention requirements for specific types of businesses, in-depth consulting services, and customized reopening plans based on the latest public health guidance. NSF also checks facilities to help ensure appropriate preventive measures are in place.

“There’s no shortage of guidance from public health authorities,” said Paul Medeiros, managing director of NSF International’s Consulting and Technical Services group, in a news release. “People are swimming in guidance, but they need help operationalizing the guidance and applying it to their own unique situations.

“For some clients, use of our app and an industry-specific checklist may be enough. But others are looking for more in-depth consultations on specific locations and issues. And some simply want us to check their locations to make sure they aren’t missing anything.”
