According to the Government, some coronavirus restrictions will be lifted on 19th July 2021 and it’s important that businesses still take precautions to keep their workplace safe for customers and staff. There are also different regulations and guidance for Wales, Northern Ireland, and Scotland.

In light of this announcement, businesses need to be thinking about the steps they need to take in order to keep their premises COVID-secure, especially after the removal of some of the coronavirus restrictions.

Here are some of the steps to think about for keeping your staff safe.

Risk Assessments

A good starting place would be to carry out a risk assessment so that you can identify what your business needs to work safely and protect your customers and staff.

At Portable Partitions Company, we not only provide high-quality room dividers and partitions to help reduce the spread of coronavirus, our experts also conduct comprehensive risk assessments to help you identify areas where your business can improve on workplace safety. Once the risk assessment has been carried out, our experts will make their recommendations for safety improvements.

Social Distancing

Social distancing is still important for reducing the spread of the coronavirus and you’ll need to have measures in place to ensure that staff and customers follow these rules. Where possible, you should keep staff and customers a distance of 2m apart. One-way systems can also help minimise contact between customers as they will only be moving in one direction through your business.

If your business premises does not have much space to physically distance people, Portable Partitions Company provides a high-quality range of room dividers that can help you maintain social distancing in smaller spaces. Our range of partitions and room dividers are ideal for reducing the spread of coronavirus and they are very easy to clean and maintain.

Here is a couple of our recommended room dividers:

Maintaining Hygiene

Another important step to think about is how you can maintain cleanliness and hygiene in your business. Coronavirus can be spread through surface contact as it can be passed on to others who touch an infected surface. Ensuring that your workplace is regularly cleaned and surfaces are disinfected will help keep your store as hygienic as possible.

In addition, making sure that hand washing areas are available and accessible helps your staff to stay on top of personal hygiene.
