Redesign Your Office To Comply With Social Distancing Laws

Collaborative post

Every country is going to implement social distancing laws at the office, if they haven’t already. You should take the time to read through the government rules and regulations to avoid fines and obey the compliance laws. However, some simple changes to your office could be done overnight or perhaps, in one weekend. If you plan ahead, you can be back in business in just a few days and start bringing back your employees from their remote at-home working areas. This can be done with these following measures.


Clear out the old

If you were about to throw out some of your old furniture but kept it around because you needed it for your growing workforce, now is the time to replace it or throw it out. Just browse this site and you’ll find that they arrive at your business, and lift all your furniture away themselves. Desks, tables, chairs and even old computers, they will pick up for you and remove them the proper way. They have a prompt service so you can call them in the morning and they’ll arrive by afternoon or by the evening. It’s a city-wide service too, so no matter where you are they can get to you in just a few minutes. Get rid of your old equipment and decor, to make way for newer things and less of it.


Social distancing desks

Employees have to be given their space so they don’t feel that their safety is put in peril. It’s not just for your office but for your business. If one worker were to get sick with the virus, they would spread it to everyone. So move the desks apart, by 2 meters and make sure to measure it out. Put tape on the floor so you know where the desks should be standing. If one person moves their desk away for some reason, you can move it back to a safe distance. Not having to share things on the desk, such as pens, staplers and other stationery is the best way to handle the new circumstances. Just limit sharing as much as you can.

General health

Your place of work has to have sanitizer bottles all around the floor. Have sanitizer bottles on tables, desks, in bathrooms and in office meeting rooms. You should also instruct your workers to wear masks or gloves if they can. Keeping the air flowing around the room will limit the chances of the virus being able to latch onto a surface, so put your air conditioning on or open your windows. Make sure that your employees are not itching their eyes or mouth with their bare hands or make them use the sanitizer before they do. If one employee is not obeying the new regulations you put in place, then encourage your employees to report them so they can face disciplinary action.

It’s not a major task to reshape and redesign your office to comply with the new social distancing laws. Use a removal company to get rid of your old things and bring in new equipment to help you.

    This is a really interesting post. I’m currently furloughed but I usually clean offices so I’m intrigued to see what changes are made when I return.

    I work from home but my mum’s office have been operating a desk booking system to limit the number of employees in the office if people want to work from there rather than home x

    I feel really glad I’m not in an office during all this, I’m not sure I’d feel too safe!
