For the last two months, businesses and professionals around the nation have held their breath waiting for the go-ahead to reopen and get back to work. Now that those orders are in place and the dates to resume business are nearing, it’s essential that physical workspaces across America are ready to support employees and keep everybody safe and healthy under the rules of the new reality.

In light of these emerging needs, Launchways is proud to announce our partnership with Atrend Safety, a local Chicago-area company that has been reborn with the purpose of enabling employers and employees to get back to work in the safest possible environment.

In this post we’ll:

  • Introduce Atrend Safety and their approach to workplace safety
  • Describe the services available to Launchways clients through Atrend Safety
  • Explain how you can learn more

Meet Atrend

Before COVID-19, Atrend was one of the industry’s most respected international manufacturers of electronics and audio equipment, especially for vehicles. However, with the coronavirus crisis, Atrend decided to retool their production facilities to create personal protective equipment (PPE) and other workplace safety equipment to support social distancing.

What Can Atrend Safety Do for Launchways Clients?

Atrend Safety provides end-to-end workplace COVID-19 safety services, including assessment of your current environment, recommendations for PPE and safety strategy based on CDC and WHO recommendations, and assistance creating your new employee safety policy.

Once that assessment and plan articulation are completed, Atrend Safety can connect you directly with the PPE you need, including:

  • Disposable face masks
  • Reusable/washable facemasks (with your company logo or preferred pattern)
  • Face shields
  • Gloves
  • Vinyl floor graphics to communicate foot traffic patterns
  • Thermometers and body temperature checking stations
  • Hand sanitization stations
  • Safety screens for cabs and ride shares

Launchways and Atrend Safety

Atrend’s pivot toward PPE is a perfect example of how Chicago-area businesses are coming together and problem-solving in new ways in the wake of COVID-19. Their dedication to enabling the work of their colleagues in the Midwest business community stands as an example for all of us.

At Launchways, we were eager to partner with Atrend, both because of their community-focused response and because of their ability to provide clients with a streamlined consultative experience that demystifies the workplace safety questions that have so many business leaders looking for answers right now.

The fact that Atrend can deliver the PPE businesses require in addition to assessing their environment and making recommendations streamlines the reopen process significantly, limiting the number of vendors and consultants businesses leaders have to turn to.
