Support Distancing Measures and Get Back to Work
As we begin bringing back the office, division, geometry, and density support distancing measures and protocols required to keep people safe.
• Division in the workplace may mean installing screens, panels, and barriers designed to enhance employee safety and reassure them that appropriate measures are in place. You might add screens or panels to achieve minimum distancing requirements, and add screens in front, beside and behind people. When a minimum distance of two metres cannot be achieved, implement the highest boundary possible above the worksurface.
• Density refers to number of people working/gathering in a limited space: people per square metre in other words. This strategy may involve removing some furniture so people are at least two metres apart. The strategy also shifts the workplace to more individual owned spaces, rather than shared desking.
• Geometry means laying out furniture while minimizing contact and adhering to distancing protocols. Components of this strategy include arranging and reorienting workstations away from a standard linear approach, minimizing sitting face-to-face interactions without a barrier, and rotating desks 90-degrees to face in different directions.
