Face masks and gloves have proven to be invaluable when it comes to slowing down the virus’ spread.
In addition to providing their employees with these items as per government requirements, it is recommended that employers also set up hand sanitizer stations at different points of the office. These can be especially important at entry/exit points as they will allow people to enter the premises to disinfect their hands.
Office owners can also set up social distancing stickers that remind employees to maintain a distance of at least one meter from one another. Special social distancing stickers can be placed on the ground to illustrate the minimum distance workers need to maintain to stay safe.
Many workplaces have begun setting up protective screens between worker desks. A sneeze guard is a clear glass panel that can act as a barrier against COVID. These can be used to create artificial partitions between desks and seats.
This arrangement can be especially useful for offices with limited space, where desks can’t be spread out and workers have to sit within close proximity to each other.
These sneeze guards can also be set up at reception desks to protect receptionists and security personnel who come into contact with people from outside regularly. These barriers are effective at shielding people from germs and bacteria transmitted via sneezes and coughs.
