What are the Government guidelines for returning to work?

Government guidelines have outlined that the main objective is to maintain social distancing wherever possible, while people travel through the workplace and when at their workstations. When this is not possible mitigating actions include using glass protection screens, floor standing glass screens or glass barriers to increase protection from coughs and sneezes. Introducing glass protection screens to the workplace is a quick and effective way to protect your staff and (if applicable) the public from the risk of cross contamination.

Why do I need to fit Glass Protection Screens?

New ‘COVID-19 secure’ guidelines are available to UK employers to help them get their business back up and running and workplaces operating as safely as possible. There are 5 key points within the published guidelines, which have been implemented to set out steps to beat the virus to restart the economy, protect workers and restore people’s livelihoods. Although many people will continue to work from home for now, safety is at the forefront of everybody’s minds, with sneeze guards and glass protection screens being a favourable solution for a COVID-secure workplace.

What is the installation process for glass protection screens?

There is no drilling, no holes and no mess. In the best interest of health and safety within close working office environments, we’ve developed the perfect solution for desk separation. The major benefits of protective office desk screens are:
– Anyone can put these screens together in minutes
– Both the desk and seating areas are covered
– Easy to clean
– Desks and floors don’t need to be drilled for holes so the glass screens can be simply removed and recycled.

What options are available for glass protection screens?

Glass protection screens allow maximum light within a space while also offering a way to define areas and routes. The glass protection screens can be supplied in clear, frosted and even sign written versions with company logos and manifestations. Our new glass protection screens are designed to protect staff from airborne contaminants.

How do glass protection screens help reduce this risk of transmission?

One of the most effective and perhaps quickest ways to protect workers from the risk of transmission from coughs and sneezes is to use glass protection screens. These glass screens are designed to reduce the risk of potential airborne germs between colleagues whilst still enabling visibility. These screens can be fitted on to any existing desktop screen with an adjustable screw locking clamp. The Safe Health care screen extension has proved to be extremely popular as it is easy to install and keep clean.

What are the safest and most effective ways to arrange the screens to reduce this risk of transmission?

Employers are being advised to review the layout of their workplaces so that staff can work side-by-side or back-to-back (rather than face-to-face) and always at the current 1 metre plus distance from one another. Hot-desking and shared workspaces are to be avoided entirely too. Where any of these measures aren’t possible – or for extra precaution – anti-viral COVID glass protection screens are the recommended solution.
