Ohio Tire Dealers Will Work to Help 'Stop the Spread'
The Ohio Tire & Automotive Association (OTAA) has joined a statewide effort and campaign to "Stop the Spread," with the goal of educating and encouraging employees on the front lines to take safety precautions and lead by example in the fight against COVID-19.
The OTAA is joining a coalition of businesses, nonprofit organizations, institutions of higher learning and other Ohio organizations to spread the word. They recognize the threat COVID-19 continues to present to Ohioans and the economy.
“We are proud to be a part of this important effort to keep businesses open while keeping our employees and customers safe,” said Jamie Hensley, president of the OTAA. “The only way to keep our economy going is to make sure we are doing the right things like sanitizing, cleaning, keeping our distance, and wearing masks. I am so proud of our members, many of whom started these safety practices well before they were mandatory. We want to continue to lead by example and we stand ready to do anything we can as an association to promote safety. Our hope is that together, we can reduce the adverse impacts of the virus and keep our businesses open.”
Coalition members will use their unique platforms to raise awareness as well as promote best practices and safety guidelines.
