As businesses return to work across the country, many employees will be worried about safety. Follow these five tips to keep your business safe and give your employees peace of mind.
1 Install hygiene screens – these will prevent contact between employees sitting next to each other at desks. By creating this barrier between work spaces, your employees will work without the fear of spreading germs.
2 Encourage use of stairs instead of lifts – not only will the use of stairs allow a form of exercise for many employees, but it will also reduce crowding in lifts where the spread of diseases can be common.
3 Ensure those working from home are doing so safely – make sure that all employees working from home have good cyber security on their computers or laptops to prevent the risk of cyber breaches which could release personal information.
4 Increase cleaning regimes – cleaning is essential in office spaces. Large employers may have to emply cleaners throughout the day. This may seem like a burden but it will give employees peace of mind.
5 Install hand sanitising stations – these should be installed not only at entrances, but throughout the office. These stations are extremely valuable for combating viruses.
