Implementing a Social Distancing Office Design

COVID-19 has impacted the way we live our lives and also how we work together. The pandemic has presented a serious challenge for business returning to work forcing them to rethink their daily operations and how they can create a social distancing office design. Many businesses have already pivoted towards the new normal by introducing measures that will reduce the spread of this virus.

  • What are the challenges companies face when returning to the office?
  • How can the company make the office a safe environment for their employees to work?

Creating a safe environment for employees

The first stage of reopening the office will involve basic changes to keep employees safe and confident that they can return to their desk. Hygiene and sanitation will be at the heart of workplace planning. Employees desks will now represent a physical separation between colleagues and extra measures will be put in place to ensure the virus doesn’t spread. Here are some examples of the measures been undertaken by companies:

  • Social Distance Signage– Stickers are being integrated around the buildings to reinforce the message that keeping a social distance can help slow the spread of the virus.
  • Sneeze Guards/Screens – PVC screens are being assembled to protect employees and customers from saliva droplets, sneezes, or coughs.
