The latest government announcement has declared that life in the UK is well on the road back to ‘normal’ (whatever this now means). Still, it’s important to remember that COVID-19 isn’t going to disappear overnight, nor will your safety obligations as a business owner.

As the easing of social distancing restrictions still depends on keeping the number of new COVID-19 cases down, we need to see this as a time to be more vigilant about protecting ourselves and the public, not less.

Quite rightly, you’re probably turning your thoughts to how best to reopen your doors or office as safely (and legally) as possible. Here’s why our plastic protective screens are key to this task.

The benefits of plastic protective screens

Whatever your business — whether you have an office, shop, or operate out of another property — you’ll need to make social distancing as easy as possible.

Acrylic or perspex checkout screens, customer screens, and desk partitions will only make this easier. If you can identify the frequent points of contact in your office or store, then you can implement physical plastic barriers where appropriate to reduce the risk of transmission.

In an ideal world, you’d be able to make your space twice as big so your employees could sit a good distance away from each other and your customers could queue while separated to the max. While this would be great — it’s not exactly feasible! Plastic paneling is your next best option when it comes to keeping everyone in your vicinity as safe as possible — make sure you use it.
