COVID-19 Office Protection Mark Downs

COVID-19 is still spreading. Mark Downs wants your office to be stylish with ergonomic office furniture. But more importantly, we want to help protect your office from the spread of coronavirus. We provide workplace protection products that will help to make you and your employees feel safer. Here is how you and your employees can combat COVID-19 in the workplace. 

Limit A Need for Employees to Touch Surfaces

The fewer surfaces that your employees touch, the better. Consider installing motion-sensor lights in the office. Another way to keep germs and bacteria from spreading in the office is to have closed waste bins in the office, preferably those with a foot pedal. 

Open Windows

It’s vital to let fresh air into any environment. For one, it helps to put employees in a better mood. Dark offices and improper lighting can impact productivity. Plus, fresh air helps to purify the air in the room, and the coronavirus does sit in the air for several hours. For this reason, it makes sense to open the windows throughout the day. 

Disinfect Electronics

Employees use their laptops and computers all day long, more than they wash their hands. If employees washed their hands as much as they typed a letter, they would need to stop working far too much. For this reason, it makes sense to disinfect desktops, laptops, keyboards, and mouse, as well as mobile phones. Also, because employees washing their hands every few moments will slow them down, equip your office with sanitizer stations. What’s even better is that we provide portable sinks as well, so there’s no need for your employees to travel. 

During Meetings, Keep Your Distance

Here we offer a multitude of workplace protection products that can keep you and your employees well-spaced apart. Freestanding dividers, counter shields, and desk and panel protection are all ways that meetings can occur, but from six feet apart. You may always want to consider adding distance discs to your office to remind employees not to stand too close. 

Encourage and Remind Your Employees to Take Care of Themselves

Stress to your employees that they should stay home when they are not feeling well. Also, remind and encourage them to take care of their immune systems. Finally, stress to your employees the importance of having a healthy work-life balance. Just because many employees are working from home doesn’t mean they should never take a break away from the computer.
