Sneeze Guards, Protection Screens and Covid-19 Requirements For Working
Smart working screens and partitions for the safety of your staff
Since March, the UK and indeed the whole world, has been caught in a COVID-19 public health emergency. As cases continue to diminish and we return to some level of normality, business and places of work will probably never be the same again.
In order to minimise the spread of infection and to keep employees safe, especially for people who work in one place and in an open-plan configuration, it is vital that going forward social distancing needs to be maintained wherever possible. Any workstation from here on in should be assigned to one person only and not be a shared space and our range of desking screens and partitions can help to create a workspace that is safe and easily recognisable as a socially distanced workstation.
With more and more businesses being able to re-open and lockdown eases, Diamond Office Furniture is on hand to advise you on what would work best for your office environment. We can do this by accessing your premises whilst it is vacant, measuring up and designing a suitable solution in 2D or 3D plans that will allow you to calculate how many staff members are able return to work within the amount of space you have, and that is compliant with social distancing measures.
All business owners need to assess and manage the risks of COVID-19 and the impact this has on staff and visitors to your business premises. This is a legal responsibility and all risks to your workforce must be considered. By providing suitable safety screens and partitions for your staff is a positive move by letting them know you have their welfare and best interests at heart.
Many organisations have been forced into introducing smart working in order to stay in business during this pandemic and have had to make some immediate changes to the way their employees have been operating. This may have been as simple as working from home or adjusting shift patterns to minimise interaction between people. Protective desk screens and partitions are now in increased demand for offices as we all prepare to get used to this new way of working. The latest government guidelines recommend that all office workers who cannot always maintain a 2m distance should be separated by a protective screen.
Moving back into the office environment means that smart working will probably be here to stay with rota systems operating for reduced staff numbers, planned routes signposted around the office, better hygiene facilities and socially distanced desking complete with safety screens and partitions to reduce any transmission.
Give Diamond Office Furniture a call today and we can discuss the right screen and partitions solution for your office and help restrict the spread of coronavirus and other potential airborne viruses. Be smart with your smart working planning.
