Around the world, Coronavirus has forced many businesses to shut down or at the least reduce productivity, however we are now seeing people slowing beginning to return to work and businesses re-opening with hope of strengthening the economy. When re-opening, businesses will have to make a conscious effort to create a safe environment for both their customers and employees, as opposed to going ‘back to normal’ thinking everything will be OK now. If businesses do not make this effort, COVID-19 cases may begin to rise, and we will see our businesses being forced to close once more and government restrictions tightening.
As part of the government guidelines to getting businesses back open, a guide to ‘5 steps to working safely’ has been issued. This is a short list of practical actions for businesses to take to create a safe environment and fight the rise of COVID-19 cases. The 5 steps are as follows:
You can create a safer environment by introducing procedures and specialist equipment. Included in this is that you should ‘increase the frequency of handwashing and hand hygiene’ (we all know the ‘Happy Birthday song trick’ right?). An employer must use signs and posters to build awareness of good handwashing technique, whilst also providing hand sanitiser in multiple locations in addition to washrooms.
One of the most likely ways of catching COVID-19 is when someone infected coughs or sneezes and the droplets are passed to other people through their mouth, nose or eyes. By maintaining a 2 metre distance you minimise the risk of this happening. In order to remain 2 metres away from others within the workplace when sanitising, businesses will have to position the Hand Sanitiser Stations apart from one another and in multiple locations.
By providing hand sanitation stands with effective signage and enforcing the correct procedures to using them, you are abiding to government issued guidelines and are making a conscious effort to create a safer working environment.
Washing and sanitising your hands is an easy and effective way in which to reduce the transmission of germs and bacteria in the workplace. Hands are gross! If you don’t believe us, take a look at the facts:

The Importance of Good Hand Hygiene and Tips

My client bought a range of Wet Room Unislope Systems from our local retailer, Bathworks. We struggled to find anyone to come to site and take responsibility for the waterproofing until we came across Wet Room Materials. They were willing to stand over their tanking system and more than helpful throughout all stages of the installation from site survey and room preparation to installation. A 10 Year no leak fully insured warranty gave me the confidence that we were dealing with a professional organisation. I would highly recommend these guys and will certainly be using them going forward.

I have honestly found, Wet Room Materials to be an easy and reliable company to work with. Whether it be a one wet room residential project, apartment block or a gym; they ensure there are no installation problems and we don’t have to worry about leaks. They take care of the specification and advising us on correct build ups and preparation. On a recent project we were able to buy their Unislope System p from our bathroom show room retailer and they subsequently came to site to tank out the bathrooms. It was a time sensitive job and The Wet Room lads worked through the evening and into the weekend to ensure we completed the project on time. I have no hesitation in recommending Wet Room Materials. They are a pleasure to deal with.

In Bright Designs, we understand the importance of specifying a reliable waterproofing system for bathrooms. We have worked on a number of projects with Wet Room Materials over the years and I can honestly say that their waterproofing installation service offers complete peace of mind for us and our clients. The Wet Room Materials Team are there throughout all stages of the project from site survey and specification to installation. More importantly they also give us a 10 year no leak guarantee. I also like the fact that they will handle communication with the client and contractors in terms of delivering a high-quality installation which allows me the head space to focus on other aspects of the build."
