As employees return to on-site operations, it is imperative companies demonstrate safety in operations both from a product perspective and an employee health perspective. Major challenges for companies include, but are not limited to:
• Running safe operations
• Confirming the safety of protective materials
• Ensuring distancing and hygiene procedures are properly implemented
• Complying with all local and state regulations and following the health authority guidance for the health protection of customers and employees
• Utilizing virtual meetings in place of face-to-face or onsite meetings for non-business critical needs

TÜV Rheinland's experienced teams and accredited laboratories are working around the clock to help U.S. companies as they return to work and address these challenges.

"We understand that companies are facing a number of difficult challenges as they resume or expand operations, and our team of experts are working side-by-side with them to ensure safety and compliance as they navigate the new normal," said Jonathan Kotrba, Vice President of Products for the Americas at TÜV Rheinland. "With our labs open 24 hours a day, we are truly committed to supporting our customers and their needs. In fact, we are prioritizing and fast-tracking product testing for critical industries, medical equipment, and any other equipment which is needed in the fight against COVID-19. Together, we can get back to work safely and successfully."

TÜV Rheinland supports U.S. businesses by offering product testing, contactless remote audits and inspections, analyses, and certifications based on local and international laws. These services can help employees return to work by optimizing operations and delivering safe, high-quality products for end consumers or medical applications in the respective target markets.
