Slow the Spread of COVID-19 with Temporary Signage
We've all memorized the chorus to Staying Alive, whether we wanted to or not, but did you know the chorus is 24 seconds long? Just enough time for a proper handwash.
Things have changed drastically over the last few weeks. Businesses are temporarily closing, many people are working from home, and processes are changing on a global level, in every industry.
It's hard to keep up with constant changes happening for your own business, let alone the rest of the city, and change is hard. The added necessity of physical distancing only adds to the stress. Let's talk about how to make this a little easier for you and those around you.
Here are some simple solutions you can quickly and easily implement to enhance the COVID safety awareness at your warehouse or site, and help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
1. Reduce the Number of People in Your Space at One Time
a) Most of us are already practicing this step, but sometimes we can forget or be unaware of different protocol changes. Displaying temporary decals or A-frames at the entrance to your building, site, meeting room or office, quickly reminds staff and visitors of the amount of people allowed in the building, room or site at one time.
b) Changing Courier or Customer Pickup Processes
Avoid unnecessary contact with couriers and customers. Use parking lot signage to let customers know that you will deliver products to their vehicle for them. Existing parking lot signage can be covered with temporary signage, making this simple to implement. For your Shipping and Receiving area, try placing an A-frame, decal or sign on or around the door.
2. Limiting Use in High Traffic Areas
Place A-frames or temporary decals in high congregation/traffic areas, limiting use to 1-2 people at a time, allowing staff and visitors to maintain their 2m distance. You can also add decaling to your washroom mirrors to remind of handwashing or indicate last cleaning or cleaning frequency.
3. Use Floor Graphics to Reinforce Your Messaging
In today’s world, people are using their cellphones every day, emailing, texting, browsing the web on a regular basis. Meaning, people are constantly looking down.
Why not reinforce your messaging with temporary floor decals to make sure that even Travis the Texter is aware of protocol changes.
4. Single User Bathrooms
Most companies and businesses have bathrooms to accommodate multiple users, but continuing this same practice makes it difficult to practice physical distancing. Try placing a temporary decal on the bathroom door, alerting visitors and employees of the change to a single use bathroom.
Together we can help slow the spread of COVID-19.
