Returning to Work: COVID-19 Workplace Partitioning
If you are considering welcoming staff back to the workplace, you will likely need to invest in some protective equipment to make your workplace safe in accordance with the government’s guidelines.
The government has provided the below guidelines for office workers, and employers must ensure:
- Workspaces are arranged to keep staff apart. The government has called for employers to consider using barriers to separate people and introduce back-to-back or side-by-side working.
- Face-to-face meetings are reduced and encourage people to see video or telephone communications wherever possible.
- Reduce crowding to ensure staff remain socially distant. Employers may wish to incorporate booking systems for desks or rooms. Employees must also be aware of social distancing measures in small spaces, for example lifts.
At GDL Interiors we have unrivalled knowledge in the field of office partitioning, refurbishment, and decoration. Many businesses up and down the country have already enlisted our expertise to assist them in installing workplace partitioning. For example, St Georges Nursing Home in Witham, Essex. We offer a variety of services and products for you to consider:
Installing desk screens can help with social distancing measures as outlined in the government’s guidelines. At GDL Interiors we supply a wide range of desk screens and can service almost every requirement your business may have. For example, from bespoke reception desk screens to freestanding models, there are numerous options to choose from. Find out more about our desk screens.
Glass partitioning services
Using glass partitioning to segregate sections of the office can also help to promote social distancing without impacting the look and feel of your workplace. Glass partitioning creates a modern, spacious office design that maximises on natural light and can be finished with vinyl and custom finish. In addition, this offers you the freedom to incorporate your company logo, colours or even the name of each room on the glass partitioning. However, it isn’t just glass partitioning that we offer, we also provide glass manifestation, demountable partitioning, fire rated partitions and operable wall systems.
