Workplace Security After COVID-19

Workplace Security After COVID-19

Providing a safe return to the office is important for everyone. For some workplaces, having multiple employees off due to COVID-19 could severely impact productivity. Lockdown restrictions may be a thing of the past for now, but the virus is still an issue. Now that the focus is on businesses to keep their employees safe and to minimise the spread of the virus, you may wonder what you can do to keep the virus at bay.

Temperature scanners

You don’t even need someone at the door to manually check temperatures. Automated temperature scanners will automatically read the temperature of every visitor and deny entry to anyone who falls outside a healthy temperature range. A high temperature was cited as one of the key symptoms of COVID-19, so this will be a particularly effective measure to keep the virus away from your workplace.

Bearing in mind that not everyone who is carrying the virus will have a high temperature, it’s helpful to know that there are other COVID-19 security measures you can put in place across your workplace.

These include:

Occupancy Control

Another effective measure is to ensure none of your indoor spaces are overcrowded, so you can maintain social distancing. People counters use real-time data and are handy to ensure the headcount doesn’t exceed your maximum limit.

Meeting Booking Systems

With effective and integrated meeting booking systems in place, your whole team can know at a glance when any of your meeting rooms are in use and when they are at full capacity. This will not only help you maintain social distancing, but it will also help you better manage your workflow, team schedules and even the cleaning rota.

Digital Signage

Digital signs are helpful for delivering fast, effective communications. From displaying reminders for visitors and employees to regularly sanitise their hands, to displaying your COVID-19-related company policies so that everyone’s up to speed with the latest changes, digital signage is a great way to encourage a proactive approach to health and safety in your workplace. Content can be quickly updated in real-time across multiple screens at once, making this an ideal communication tool - for large or multiple sites.
