How To Create A Safe Working Environment

1. Deep Clean Your Facility

Diseases spread easily in workplaces. To prevent this, it’s crucial to have your working facility deep cleaned regularly to keep it safe from harmful bacteria and viruses, such as Covid-19. Any deep cleaning service you hire should include a thorough clean of all the surfaces in your premises, including door handles, desks, telephones, cash registers, keyboards etc.

Our trained team can perform a deep clean fogging treatment that coats every surface in your workplace with a fine layer of non-toxic formula, killing 99.99% of germs and bacteria – including Covid-19 – leaving a layer protection that keeps working for up to 30 days.

2. Carry Out Regular Risk Assessments

As we live and work in such a fast-paced world, our environment and surroundings change constantly which is why it’s so important to carry out regular risk assessments at your place of work. Inspect the interior and exterior of the physical building, including stairways and exterior pathways, as well as potential dangers to employee wellbeing.

Ensuring you do this on a regular basis, and sharing your findings and actions, can go a long way to improving the safety, and wellbeing, of your employees.

3. Desk Separators

If your work environment is an office, then desk separators are an affordable solution for enforcing social distancing in the office and minimising the risk of airborne transmission.

Protect staff returning to work following the coronavirus lockdown with a simple, affordable & highly effective solution – glass desk separators from Jade Aden Interiors. Our easy to install desk dividers help significantly reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission by providing your employees with individual desk space that’s physically separated from their colleagues, without blocking communication.

4. Cellular Offices

One effective way to prevent the spread of diseases is by maintaining a safe distance from others. In some office settings, however, this isn’t always possible. In such cases, cellular office enclosures can be an excellent alternative.

Glass desk screens are a sleek, yet effortlessly simple way to improve the safety of your office. They create a solid barrier between employees without blocking out light, and can be easily changed, relocated, or removed depending on your everchanging needs.

5. Proper Ventilation

Clean air circulating throughout your office environment is crucial, particularly when you may not have windows or be able to open them very wide. Our ventilation and air conditioning specialists are here to review your system and provide updated solutions where required.

6. Emergency Exits

By showing everyone the relevant emergency exits, both physically and via clear signage, you’re putting the safety of your employees first. Regular fire drills in the workplace also serve to remind people of their nearest exits as well as the emergency procedures should a real incident occur. Make sure that the route to the emergency exits are always kept clear, that first aid kits and emergency equipment, such as fire extinguishers and defibrillators, are present, and that employees know how to work them.

If you’re looking to enhance fire safety in your workplace, the Komfort Komfire 75 partitioning system is a fantastic option. This innovative system features 75 mm thick plasterboard and metal studs, providing a minimum of 30 minutes of fire protection. With customisable panel options and a range of attractive colour finishes, it’s versatile enough to match nearly any office environment.

Aside from its exceptional fire protection, the Komfire 75 also offers excellent soundproofing abilities, creating a more calm and productive work atmosphere.
