    Contagion Mitigation Planning

    Health Support Systems, LLC

    North Dakota

    Stay Open

    Our contagion mitigation services can help businesses keep their doors open longer, reduce the time business operations are shut down, or even help a closed business get up and running again more quickly. No one should have to choose between keeping employees safe and staying in business.

    Reduced Chance of Staff Sickness

    Numbers talk. Even a slight reduction in lost staff hours due to illness will reap significant cost savings for any business saving them thousands and thousands of dollars. Of course, the goal is to recoup any many “staff sick days” as possible by keeping them safe and healthy, through targeted, consistent daily efforts.

    IT Vendor Access

    Health Support Systems, LLC has partnered with a local Information Technology company to help ensure businesses are able to safely allow staff to work from home.

    Continuing Education & Training

    Mitigating infectious diseases risks aren’t a one-time operation. We offer as a part of our Contagion Certificate complementary OSHA Personal Protective Training, Soap & Sanitization training, Employee training logging, and more.

    Contagion Mitigation Certificate

    Communicating that a business facility is safe both to guests and staff is important to provide an efficient workplace. The Contagion Mitigation Certificate sends a clear message that your business not only cares about its staff and clients wellbeing but that they have the training to keep them safe and healthy when an infectious disease is circulating.
