Hygiene Protective Screens: A Workplace Essential On The Path To Reopening

Recent UK government announcements of a “roadmap” out of the COVID-19 pandemic mean that we’re now cautiously optimistic of things beginning to return to normal by the end of June 2021. Of course, the return to normal working practices will be largely dependent on infection rates falling well below their current figures, and it’s likely that we’ll see a phased return over several months, if not years.

Hygiene protective screens will play a huge role in helping businesses to prepare for reopening. These protective acrylic screens help to create a physical barrier between workers and are particularly useful when adherence to social distance measures otherwise prove tricky.

Flexibility and compliance

One of the benefits of protective screens is that your team will have complete control over where they are placed and how they are fitted. For example, you may choose to implement a full standing screen between desks if you have the space to do so. If your office is short on space, you might instead decide to implement lightweight hygiene protective screens on the top of adjoined desks. Whatever your decision, the implementation of hygiene protective screens will help keep your staff safe.

Because protective screens are lightweight and easy to move, they can be utilised in a variety of ways. Let’s imagine an important meeting, for example. If you need your entire team to be in one space, but need to ensure pandemic regulations are adhered to, simply reposition your protective screens. This will allow essential participants in the meeting to gather in a safe and socially-distant way, while maintaining transparency and allowing everybody to communicate effectively.

Protecting customers with hygiene protective screens

If your business operates within the service industry, hygiene protective screens will be invaluable when it comes to reopening over the summer. These screens help to protect both workers and customers from the spread of COVID-19 and other germs.

Hygiene protective screens are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, and are perfect for offices, schools, doctor’s surgeries, hotels, holiday parks, reception areas and more – put simply, no business is going to want to be without them by the summertime.

Being proactive about purchasing hygiene protective screens could give your business a head-start when it comes to reopening, which means now is the perfect time to start putting your safety measures in place.
