Your 5 Steps for a COVID-Secure Workplace
To help you and your business get back up to speed after the lockdown here’s our 5 simple steps to create a COVID-secure workplace - taken directly from government guidelines
1. Carry out a COVID-19 risk assessment
With our experience of conducting in-depth workplace surveys, we can help you consult your workforce on a range of issues around the pandemic - their experience of homeworking, their technology needs and their ideals for the future of your workspace.
2. Develop cleaning, handwashing & hygiene procedures
Providing adequate handwashing facilities and sanitisation points is an essential part of protecting staff in the post-COVID-19 workplace.
In addition to our hand sanitising units and mains-powered hygiene stations, we offer handwashing points that work with a tank supply, making them totally portable.
3. Help people to work from home
Businesses must still take ‘all reasonable steps to help people work from home’ at this time.
As well as conducting staff surveys and interviews to understand their needs and frustrations, we can advise on a wide range of technologies to aid remote working and virtual collaboration.
With homeworking inevitably playing a part in how businesses operate going forward we can also help you explore in-office technologies for creating a more agile workspace such as room and desk booking systems, presentation systems and AV furniture.
4. Maintain 2m social distancing, where possible
As inherently social creatures it is easy to forget or underestimate the social distancing required. We can help re-plan your space, decommission workstations, devise one-one traffic flows and create additional welfare spaces. We can also provide a range of signage options to keep safety front of mind.
5. Where people cannot be 2m apart, manage transmission risk
Where it’s difficult or impractical for people to be 2m apart, we can install screens and barriers to manage the transmission risk.
From desk mounted screens for receptions and workstations to full height screens for entrances and tea points to pods for seating areas and waiting rooms - We can even arrange branding
Remember, social distancing applies to all parts of your business.
Entrances and exits, lifts and stairwells, break rooms, canteens and restrooms can be some of the most challenging areas to adapt.
