Physical distancing at the office will soon become the phrase on the tip of everyone’s tongue. While there is no definite schedule for workplace re-entry, the time to consider short, medium and long-term solutions is now.
The good news is, many of these physical solutions already exist. “With advance planning, we can start helping clients reconfigure or reimagine their office space now,” says Mitchell Cohen, Dealer Principal, WSG. “We already work with suppliers that have product in stock, or that can be ordered; in addition to a practical solution, the design aesthetic is absolutely there. It’s really a two-for-one solution!”
PHYSICAL DISTANCING SOLUTIONS
Office dividers and screens can help divide spaces into safe zones and distinct areas. “These screens can be fixed or flexible, allowing you to create your own zones within the office space,” says Michael Miedzinski, Account Manager, WSG. WSG works with two excellent manufacturers: BuzziSpace and ezobord.
TAKE A TEMPERATURE
Another WSG manufacturer, Clarus, is introducing their latest product – the TherMobile, which was specifically designed to increase the safety of essential business employees and healthcare workers. The TherMobile window allows you to safely take the temperature of incoming employees or handoff any necessary paperwork, all through a non-porous, easily cleanable safety shield. “This is an excellent innovation by a long-time WSG supplier,” says Mitchell Cohen. “It’s amazing to see how everyone is stepping up to the plate to ensure a safe workplace.”
Providing sanitization stations throughout the workspace will become mandatory – as staff will demand it. This is perhaps one of the easiest solutions to tackle; talk to one of the Account Managers at WSG about supplying these for your office.
