How Do I Protect My Manufacturing Staff After COVID-19 Lockdown?

How Do I Protect My Manufacturing Staff After COVID-19 Lockdown?

The manufacturing industry has taken a significant hit due to the COVID-19 pandemic, especially for businesses that rely on skilled workers who cannot carry out their jobs from their homes. According to the National Association of Manufacturers, it is estimated that approximately 80% of manufacturers expect that the pandemic will have a financial impact on their business.

Many businesses in the manufacturing industry also expect their operations to be impacted by supply chains being slowed down due to fewer workers being available. Whilst manufacturers are exempt from the non-essential work category, some workers are hesitant to go back into work due to the concerns around COVID-19.

Whilst personal protective equipment is a must, there are other measures that you could take to make your manufacturing business a safer environment and to provide further assurance to your staff.

How Can Room Partitions & Protection Screens Help Manufacturers?

At Portable Partitions Company, we provide a wide range of COVID-19 mitigation products that can help you maintain social distancing at work in order to reduce the spread of germs.

We offer a range of room dividers that can help you separate production areas and manage the space more effectively. With our room dividers, you can partition certain areas of your factory to manage your staff and keep contact to a minimal.

For office spaces within the factory, we provide desk screens that provide an effective solution for minimising direct contact with staff and further reducing the chances of transmitting viruses.
