The best way to make your workspace protected throughout COVID-19

Regardless of whether you have a restaurant, hairdresser, office, or other workspace with employees, clients, and customers, it is important to keep everyone safe during the coronavirus pandemic. To do this, you need to ensure that your workplace is COVID-safe as recommended by the government.

First, perform a Covid-19 risk assessment as directed by the Health and Safety Executive. Once you've assessed the risks in your workplace, it's time to rethink your workspace and make the necessary changes to keep everyone safe.

Some physical changes that can be made include:

Hygiene Practices.

– Delivery of hand disinfectants to entrances and exits, elevators, meeting rooms and bathrooms.
– Posting signs to remind workers and customers of hygiene requirements.
– Install more storage space for employees' clothes and bags.
– Replacing doors with handles with swing doors that can be opened with shoulders and feet.
– Installation of moving lights in rooms, including bathrooms.

Social distancing.

– Reorganizing the work area including entrances, break rooms, public areas, canteens and more to encourage distancing.
– Attachment of floor markings at the entrances / exits and around the work area in order to indicate a reasonable distance.
– Install screens and barriers to keep people apart.
– Organization of one-way traffic through the workplace.
– Reconfiguration of workstations so that employees don't sit face to face, but side by side or side by side.
