ACG continues to place the highest priority on the health, safety and wellbeing of the ACG Community. This section describes the Health and Safety practices that our college has developed in order to provide a safe working environment for ACG employees.
All ACG Faculty & Staff should adopt the following Hygiene practices to prevent COVID-19:
All employees returning to campus are required to practice social distancing. The Practice of social distancing includes:
The use of cloth masks is strongly recommended in closed spaces, offices with more than one person, classrooms labs and buses. In elevators and infirmaries, the use of masks is required by everyone. Use of alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Frequent and proper hand washing with soap and water is the most effective method of removing viral particles. However, when that is not possible, alcohol-based hand sanitizer can be used. As such, hand sanitizer will be made available in every office and classroom.
All employees are encouraged to avoid sharing foods and drinks. Disinfection of any appliances before and after the use is strongly recommended.
All employees are encouraged to avoid sharing office supplies and equipment. Disinfection of shared equipment before and after the use is strongly recommended.
If a test for COVID-19 is completed and the result is positive, the employee should be immediately isolated from the rest of the employee and follow the quarantine procedures outlined in the rules set forth by the College as recommended by The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Hellenic National Public Health Organization (EODY), including any travel restrictions.
The Human Resources department should:
If a test for COVID-19 test is completed and the result is negative, the employee can return to work 24 hours after their symptoms are gone.
Employees travel to work in various ways, including personal vehicles, campus buses and public transportation. Departments should encourage employees to
All ACG buildings, offices & facilities approved for reopening and occupancy are cleaned on a regular basis, too. ACG’s Safety Engineer has examined and recommended the appropriate social distances for all spaces on campus. Technical plans have been drawn up for classrooms and labs to reflect and apply the directions set forth for 1.5 meters between all individuals (students, faculty and staff) and no more than 1 person per 10 square meters. Appropriate distancing for larger spaces – theater, amphitheater – will be applied once they are in use. For offices where plexiglass has not been installed, adjustments to staff working hours and change of office space may be considered after consultation with supervisors in order to comply with appropriate distances of 1.5 m between individuals and 1 person per 10 square meters.
Everyone returning to campus has the responsibility and the power to keep ACG campus safe. Health information signage is in the process of being updated across campus, and all departments obtain hand sanitizer and surface cleaning wipes through the normal office supply purchasing process.
Hand sanitizer stations will be provided at the entries/exits of each high-traffic building as determined by facilities. All employees are strongly recommended to avoid congregating in close proximity during entry into buildings, and should maintain adequate social distancing.
As directed by public authorities, the use of elevators is limited to individuals who are unable to use the stairs (physically handicapped/health condition) and at 40% capacity or for the transportation of supplies that cannot be carried upstairs.
Drinking from the water fountains is not permitted.
For emergency evacuations that occur the social distancing measures have to be followed according to the regulations and guidelines proposed by Governmental authorities. Physical distancing shall be maintained when possible during these scenarios.
Effective use of signage can be a very easy way to remind people to reduce their risk or let visitors know you are looking out for your employees.
