Top Tips to Reopen your Office Safely
Office workers are gradually returning to their workspaces following a period of home working due to government imposed lockdowns. Many will be pleased to be able to once again separate their work life from their home life. However, many could also be worried about the safety implications of returning to the office while Covid-19 remains a threat. There are various measures businesses should take to make the return to shared workspaces a safe and positive experience for their staff.
According to the Center For Disease Control (CDC), the cleaning of visibly dirty surfaces followed by disinfection is also a best practice measure for prevention of Covid-19 and other viral respiratory illnesses in households and community settings.
Particular attention should be paid to shared items that are subject to regular human contact, including printers, kettles, microwaves and door handles. Health authorities recommend the use of an alcohol-based antiseptic solution containing at least 70% alcohol and 30% water to disinfect surfaces.
