Back to work, back to safety

Back to work, back to safety
Let’s get ready to reopen your business!

As the UK begins to reopen, many people are looking forward to enjoying a good meal with family and friends or getting out of those joggers and jumping into new summer clothes.

To help businesses of all sizes #getbacktowork as quickly and safely as possible, we have put together this blog so that those working in the hospitality and retail sectors know exactly how we can help both your employees and the general public feel safe and secure.

Safety First

It is important to make sure your employees feel safe and prepared before they return to work, giving them confidence in doing their job safely. Whatever sector you are in, view the handy guides to make sure your bases are covered. Once you have identified areas that need alteration or improvement you can look at ways of achieving them.

Staying safe at work
Handy tips to stay safe at work

Government guidelines stipulate that everyone must maintain social distancing in the workplace wherever possible. If there are any activities that are required where social distancing cannot be fully adhered to, then measures must be taken to reduce the risk of transmission between people.

For example:

  • Washing hands and surfaces more regularly.
  • Using screens or barriers to separate people from each other.
  • Reducing the number of people each person has contact with by using ‘fixed teams or partnering’ (so each person works with only a few others).
  • Staggering break times to reduce pressure on the staff rooms / communal areas.
  • Use safe outside areas for breaks.
  • Optimise spacing and re-arrange tables and chairs to reduce face-to-face interaction.
  • Ensure that people with disabilities are able to access lifts safely and that there are clearly marked zones on the lift floor.
  • Provide hand sanitiser for the operation of lifts and encourage the use of stairs wherever possible.
  • Use social distance marking for other common areas such as toilets, changing rooms and in any other areas where queues typically form.
