Safe Distancing Measures For Offices
Having lived through a year of the pandemic, we all know that this pandemic is here to stay. With new terms such as safe distancing, we have to think about how we can practice that in the office. Here are some ways that you can change the office up to accommodate safe distancing measures and keep everyone there safe!
One way to keep everyone safe would be to establish specific zones in the office. With the implementation of different working teams, you can keep them apart by splitting the office into zones according to their split teams. You can do this by simply rearranging furniture, using things like desks or bookshelves to differentiate the zones. You can also make the office more lively by using colour, or low profile physical barriers like potted plants to establish these zones without making it look like a crime scene.
Make Use of The Outdoors
Gone are the days of having to cram into a meeting room, so why not make use of the space outside of your office to meet instead? You can place furniture, such as tables, chairs and charging outlets, in tasteful areas outside the office in order to facilitate a meeting area outdoors. Having a small garden or nature area to indicate the area that is used for meetings helps to make the environment more conducive.
With the implementation of new Covid-19 measures, signs depicting them have made their way into our everyday lives. However, they do not have to look so strict and hospital-like. Get creative with the way you display your rules and measures. Get creative. Use things like bulletin boards, stickers and blackboard stands. This reminds people of the things they should do to keep themselves and everyone around safe.
The spread of pandemic has been closely linked with personal hygiene. Invest in a few amenities around the office in order to promote personal hygiene. Look into things that are contactless. There are automated hand sanitizer machines and automated soap machines that can be placed strategically. Place these in areas of high traffic, such as the break area of the entrances and exits.
