Businesses at risk of spreading COVID-19 are installing Hygiene Screens.

As discussed in the previous blog, a new priority has been set by many essential services on ensuring that health and safety measures are put in place during the COVID-19 outbreak to help reduce the spread of infection. A device for ensuring that a satisfactory level of health and safety is maintained between customers and staff is Hygiene screens or COVID-19 Protective Shields. The device blocks potentially infectious particles from transmitting between parties in a non-invasive manner allowing for regular transactions to function for businesses. It is not just the health sector that are installing these devices but every essential service still running during these times that are involved in face-to-face transactions with many customers on a regular basis. This includes retail stores, supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, convenience stores, petrol stations, etc.

Installing COVID-19 Protective Shields (Hygiene Screens) definitely should be considered by these customers however, it is not the only measure that should be implemented. Employers have been advised by WorkSafe to provide handwashing facilities and maintain those facilities, provide soap or alcohol-based hand sanitizer where available and put up signage that encourages and informs customers and staff of the importance of maintaining health and safety measures during this pandemic. Furthermore, personal protective equipment in the form of masks and gloves should be provided to the staff. These measures in combination with the installation of COVID-19 Protective Shields functioning as Hygiene Screens will ensure the reduction of the risk of COVID-19 spread within the confines of your business place. Every employer should be taking these necessary steps provided by WorkSafe and even are encouraged to go the extra mile by taking their own measures to help improve the health and safety of society.

This is an important measure that should be considered by every business that involves a transaction between many customers on a daily basis, the severity and apprehension that COVID-19 has on society should not be overlooked as the priority for businesses during this period should always be to ensure the health and safety of every stakeholder involved in the business from staff to customer. COVID-19 Acrylic Hygiene Protection Screens can come in custom sizes at the convenience of the business set up and surroundings. Additionally, a transaction window is usually requested and placed at the bottom of the window so that a distance is maintained between the mouth and the cut-out, lessening the chance of any transmission of particles. The material used for a COVID-19 Acrylic Hygiene Protection Screen should be at least 6mm thick clear cast acrylic that is easily washable and transparent. The outbreak has shifted the focus for many essential services to be on hygiene and health, for many businesses this should of always been the case so now is the time for those businesses to step up and make the necessary actions required to do their part in helping “flattening the curve” and reducing the spread of infection. Installing devices as safety measures such as COVID-19 Acrylic Hygiene Protection Screens should now be a priority for any business dealing with face-to-face interactions with customers.
