If there is one thing that we can be reasonably certain about in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis – that is that social distancing is here to stay. And, that businesses big and small now have a duty of care to ensure that their workplace is COVID safe.
Fortunately, the team at Office Boy is here to help and has been helping employers across Melbourne reconfigure their workplaces to make them COVID safe for their employees.
Setting up your office or workplace for social distancing doesn’t have to be a complex and costly process. At Office Boy we look for simple, practical and cost-effective solutions to help you make your workplace COVID safe.
Install sneeze screens and dividers
Installing sneeze screens at reception, in between workstations and on meeting room tables is one of the simplest and most cost-effective ways to protect your staff. They’re:
• Made from perspex, our sneeze screens are modular and easily installed.
• Elegantly styled.
• Easily removed when this is all over.
Reconfigure workstations and desks
In many cases we’re able to reconfigure existing workstations and desks, allowing you to create more distance between people. Our team can inspect your office and work with you to:
• Assess the suitability of your current setup and workstations.
• Develop a reconfiguration plan.
• Reconfigure your workstations.
• Alter electrical and data cabling to suit.
Install or reconfigure partitions to make better use of space
In some instances the best option may be to reconfigure your space, by moving or installing new portions to create distinct workspaces or meeting rooms.
Being commercial fitout specialist, we can design and install a wide range of modern partitioning systems, including:
• glass partitions – with the option to add custom decals
• aluminium partitions.
Setup home workstations
If you have staff who would like to continue working from home, or you’re looking at longer-term remote working options – you do have a legal duty of care to ensure their work environment is safe.
As office design and fitout expert, we move existing workstations and desks, or supply and install new ones, in their homes to ensure they have a sound ergonomic setup and can work safely.
