The world has changed, and running a small business won’t be the same in May as it was in February. As businesses slowly re-open we can expect to see a new ‘normal’ and there will be a change to how businesses operate to ensure we all keep our customers and colleagues safe.
The full social distancing guidance from the Government is available here and outlines how employers can help protect their workforce and customers from coronavirus while still continuing to trade. Key takeaways include:
- A distance of 2 metres should be maintained between individuals, wherever possible.
- Employees should wash their hands using soap and water for 20 seconds as regularly as possible especially after blowing their nose, sneezing or coughing, on arrival at work, before and after eating, after using public transport, and when they arrive home.
- Staff should only come into work if they are well and no one in their household is self-isolating.
One way that you can help to prevent the spread COVID-19 and encourage customers and colleagues to follow social distancing guidelines in the workplace is through the use of signage. Our COVID-19 safety signs serve as a friendly reminder of the rules you should follow.
At this challenging time, it is important for business to carry on whilst following social distancing guidance to reduce the spread of infection.
