Covid-19 has undoubtably changed our everyday lives, especially our working life. While there were few who were still required to go into work, with the recent ease of restrictions majority of the population will be going back into work shortly. With this, it’s vital that your employees are safe at work and prevent the spread of any germs so we’ve put together some tips to help get your business prepared.
It’s important to apply social distancing to all areas of your business, including:
- Shop floors
This can be done by marking out areas or simply by placing signage around your workplace. This may be dauting for your staff, so it’s important to reassure them that it’s for their safety. A top tip for large areas like your warehouse or manufacturing facility, is to use magnetic tape to identify temporary and permanent hazards in the workplace. Magnetic tape is available in a variety of sizes and can be applied to ferrous surfaces such as steel to mark out the 2 metre rule. For smaller workstations, like the office area, tape out workstations to ensure work stations are 2 meters apart.
The best aspect of magnetic tape is that it can be easily fixed and re-located with ease to clearly display notices.
One-way systems are the best way to guide your team around the workplace. This will help eliminate the spread of germs, discouraging people to cross paths. Magnetic tape also helps with this for warehouses and manufacturing facilities where steel surfaces are common.
It’s important to encourage your team to wash and sanitise their hands regularly. Setting up sanitising stations around the workplace with clear signage and instructions for staff to follow is a great way to encourage this. Magnetic signage that is clear, concise and consistent should be placed around the workplace, prompting staff. These signs can be located on any ferrous surface. These stations and magnetic signs should also be positioned at the exits and entrances of your company buildings to encourage any customers or visitors to clean their hands.
