Government guidelines state that ’employers should re-design workspaces to maintain 2-metre distances between people by staggering start times, creating one-way walk-throughs, opening more entrances and exits, or changing seating layouts in break rooms.

We work very closely with our clients to create a ‘smart safer working environment’ that is extremely hygienic and incorporates the very latest in touchless, automated and proximity systems.’

As the typical office environment hasn’t been designed to prevent the spread of viruses or diseases, most businesses now face the challenge of protecting the health and wellbeing of their staff and customers.

As office space is usually at a premium, its often the complete opposite, with many designed to maximise space and keep colleagues close together to encourage interaction and communication, especially within teams or departments.

Most businesses will have the flexibility to move desks or relocate staff in order to respect social distancing rules. They will also have the option to install screens to respect employees physical space and help protect their wellbeing.

However, viruses, diseases and germs are not just transmitted from person to person. They can be spread by touching a surface that has been contaminated, including light switches, cupboard door handles, sink taps and toilet flushers.

By introducing touchless technology, it creates a more professional atmosphere that has a huge impact on staff morale, sickness levels and productivity – and provides a great impression for visitors and clients too.

These touchless systems and solutions not only help to reduce the spread of disease and infection but also improve your organisation’s energy-efficiency.
