The information that should not be included in an Opening and Closing Procedure Manual includes passwords, other login credentials, personal information about staff members, privileged communication between healthcare providers or details about sensitive patient care issues. These types of information must be kept separate from the manual.
A policy on office opening and closing should contain a description of the tasks that staff are expected to complete each day before starting their work, or at the end of their shift. When describing these responsibilities, it is essential to be clear so that there are no misunderstandings among staff members. It is also important to establish expectations about how long each task will take. Also, providing guidance regarding best practices for documenting the tasks performed by employees during their shifts (time spent doing each one etc.) and any other instructions related to safety/security protocols at work would be helpful. It is also important that organizations review policies periodically with their staff to ensure they are in compliance with any local laws or regulations which might change.
