Office Health Safety Post Covid-19.

 

Keep your office hygienic with these steps.  

To keep your office space hygienic, several factors should be considered. It is important that you encourage all employees to adhere to the rules in place. Write out office guidelines and send emails so that employees can familiarize themselves with the rules.  When your staff feels safe they will be both happier and more productive

 

Office Health Safety Post Covid-19

Intermittent ventilation Can Improve Office Health

 

Employees should open the windows wide for a few minutes every 20 minutes. This will help to exchange for new air. This approach has the following advantages:

Fresh air is healthier

 

  1. Fresh air increases the productivity of your employees.
  2. These measures help to ensure regular room air disinfection. 
  3. If it is not possible to open the windows in winter, appropriate devices can help such as HEPA filters

Disinfect the workplace regularly 

 

Every employee makes a significant contribution to a clean work environment. Trash, cleaning agents, and disinfectants should be available at every workplace. It will be easier for desks to be kept clean. As well,  make disinfectant stations with antibacterial wipes available. 

Wear a mask to be super safe

 

Both outdoors and in the office, employees should understand mask mandates. These masks minimize the risk of infection with coronavirus. So-called FFP2 masks or medical-surgical masks are particularly helpful. It is nearly impossible to prevent large gatherings of people. This is especially true in open-plan offices and co-working spaces. Create an effective and structured working day with the help of your employees. As well be sure to make certain that people can keep the minimum distance. It can be done if the employees show mutual consideration.

Use professional cleaning service for full cleanliness.

 

Employees can help to keep the office clean. However, it is best to use professional service providers.  This is especially true for large office spaces, but also true for smaller offices.  Most employees keep their workplaces clean. However,  it is advisable to seek external help for bathrooms and kitchens. As a result, you will increase the hygiene standard. Consequently, the risk of infection is reduced many times over. Consider a deep clean before employees return. Look for a company that offers Covid cleaning services

What’s next?

 

The corona pandemic is a completely new challenge for everyone. It is not yet possible to predict what the future will look like. Will workers want to continue working from home? Will they feel less motivated being in an office where they don’t feel safe? All these questions are affecting businesses.

Many bosses believe that people must be together in the office and to come together as a team again.  Nobody really knows what will transpire. However, if similar disasters occur in the future, the world will be better prepared.

We ourselves can make a start with exemplary hygiene in the workplace. It can begin with you.

50 thoughts on “Office Health In Corona Times”

  1. It’s always good to remember those and always be mindful and follow those health protocols. Even if some are vaccinated, it’s better to be safe than sorry

  2. Some experts say that employees working from home are not as efficient as they would if they are in an office setting. I guess, if the economy is not improving with the business environment we have now, businesses may soon implement work-in-the-office set-up

  3. My sister, daughter and son in law have returned to the work place and they are being extra careful, even if all of them have been fully vaccinated. Bringing their own eating utensils and frequent hand washing is what they do. I understand how it can bring paranoia to some.

  4. I don’t think you can go too far when it comes to cleaning a work environment. With so many people in one area, things need to be as clean as possible. These are excellent tips.

  5. It will be interesting to see how offices handle the post-COVID working environment. Your tips are all helpful but I don’t know how many of these ideas companies will embrace. I am so glad to work from home!

  6. Both my husband and I have transitioned back to the office and classroom. There are health measures in place but some places and people are really lax. We are not. We make sure we follow guidelines and take care of our health and family first.

  7. It’s glad to know that they keep health and safety protocols. Let’s normalize this thing during these days.

  8. The UK is dropping all restrictions on the 19th July even though its currently getting about 40,000 cases per day…

    The office environments will be covid hotspots for sure, especially when some bosses etc don’t even think Covid is too bad.

  9. Me and my friends have been discussing this issue. Half of them are scared to go out with fears of being infected. Half of them sees it as the work from home situation is more convenient and more cost efficient.

    The overall is that they’re all fully adjusted with the situation. It’s the freedom to do whatever and whenever even during work hours and the best of all… no office dramas.

    1. Work from home offers many, many benefits. As well as some negatives. Work at the office also offers benefits but can also have many negatives. Of course, one big factor is the office culture.

  10. These are great hygiene tips for office health safety post Covid-19. I’m totally on board with continuing mask wear.

  11. One thing I am extremely grateful for is that I am self employed. I can’t imagine going back to an office setting after all of this time.
