Anti Viral - Onsite Sterilisation and Hygiene Services
The coronavirus pandemic has changed the way we live. For weeks, most of us have stayed at home to avoid unsafe working conditions and viral transmission. Staying at home has also helped to protect more vulnerable people who may be at risk of much more severe and even life-threatening symptoms. It’s been a tough couple of months but now the lockdown is beginning to ease, many people are concerned about going back to work.
Returning to Work: Coronavirus Health and Safety
The coronavirus causing the pandemic is a novel virus, also known as Covid-19. Like other viruses, Covid-19 is spread through coughs and sneezes, which send tiny droplets into the air. These droplets may be inhaled by another person standing close by but can also land on surfaces and other touch points. This is why maintaining social distancing and excellent hygiene is so important.
Now that the lockdown is easing and employees are heading back to work, maintaining a high standard of cleanliness is essential. Employers must ensure that the risk to their employees is minimized as much as possible. Creating a health and safety strategy is the best way to ensure that every need is met and any and all risks are properly managed.
Simple Health and Safety Strategies
Employers should consider a variety of health and safety interventions at this time. For example, they could allow some staff to work from home or create a rota so that the workplace is never full to capacity. Adding sneeze guards (large plastic sheets) between people is another good way to protect employees. Other simple suggestions might include providing face masks and hand gels on-site and increasing the frequency of cleaning on the premises.
Employers should also strongly consider decontaminating their workplace to ensure that the space is as safe as possible on their return. This is where Ecofficiency can help.
