As we all start to get back to normal life, understandably a lot of people are feeling worried about leaving the safety of the office at home and returning to work in an office with other people. It is important during this time to make sure that you do as much as possible to keep the office covid safe so that people can work without the worry.

It is a good idea to move desks and seating so that everyone is well distanced. Of course, this isn’t always possible but back to back working rather than facing each other is safer, and you can always add Perspex sneeze screens. Rearranging is a good opportunity to upgrade your office furniture too, so get in touch with a local company like Gloucester office furniture supplier Severn Furnishing to make the office a nice place to return to.

Set up an office cleaning team that can keep key areas safe throughout the day – have a rota to ensure that doorhandles, buttons on keypads and areas that are used and touched often such as the photocopier are cleaned regularly. You should also place hand sanitiser in these areas to allow people to keep hands clean when using them.

Ventilation is important and there should be a flow of fresh air passing through the office. If you are not able to get windows open or cannot get air into the room from the outside there are ventilation systems that you can buy to put in.
