With the UK in a second lockdown, non-essential retailers and services have been closed again with the government advice remaining work from home is possible. So, what about those of us who can’t? If it’s not feasible for you to do your job from home, it’s understandable that you might still be concerned about how to stay safe in the workplace.
Cleaning and hygiene
If you’re an employer, it’s important to take reasonable steps to protect your employees. You can do this by ensuring there are adequate handwashing facilities with running water, soap and paper towels or hand dryers as well as hand sanitiser available. For employees, make sure you’re aware of the provisions and follow handwashing guidance and do your bit to help out when it comes to keeping your workspace clean and cleaning objects and equipment after you have finished using them.
Anti-bacterial touch guards
Displaying safety information, using protective screens and directional arrows are all great ways to navigate a COVID secure workplace but have you thought about anti-bacterial touch guards? Self-adhesive touch guards can be used on door handles or door push plates to minimise the risk in areas where multiple people need to touch the same objects. The anti-bacterial barrier helps to protect against infection and is also available in sheet form.
Look after your wellbeing
It’s normal to feel more stressed or overwhelmed in these times, even if your usual job responsibilities haven’t changed. Remember that everyone else is likely experiencing similar feelings to you so try to take time to check in with colleagues or staff to see how they’re doing as well as allowing time for yourself.
The coronavirus pandemic has changed life for all of us as we enter this second lockdown and that means facing new challenges and adapting to new situations to look after yourself and others. At AB Print, we want to do everything we can to help keep you and your workforce safe. To find more information about our COVID-19 printed products, get in touch with us today.
