With the UK Government now confirming social distancing measures will be reduced to 1m+ where 2m is not possible, it is time to update your current safety measures.
The new distancing regulation will enable indoor venues to allow more customers and staff inside their premises resulting in the potential increase of revenue from 30% at 2m to between 60-75%*. With bars and restaurants welcoming more customers and schools being allowed to host more students, it is even more important that safety is at the forefront of your decision making. From new 1m floor and window graphics to wayfinding and directional signage, make sure people entering your business are aware of the new 1m social distancing measures put in place to combat the spread of COVID-19. Key products to consider are:
Replace or reuse. Any 2m Floor graphics you may already have in place could either be totally replaced with new and updated 1m graphics OR you could simply add new 1m self-adhesive stickers in between the current 2m graphics.
Hygiene and Health & Safety signage
Make sure your premises has partitions and cough and sneeze guards in place and adhere to the 1m distancing rule.
Move and relocate any portable signs and graphics to adhere to the new 1m distances. This could include products such as A-boards, barriers, gazebos, banners and flags.
Update any digital screen content, changing your messaging from the 2m distancing rules to the new 1m regulation.
Printed temporary signage
Replace any current 2m social distancing signage you may have to the new 1m message.
Whether you are changing current signage you have in place or ordering social distancing solutions for the first time, make sure all your messaging is cohesive and not a mix between 1m and 2m. This way customers will feel confident moving around your premises and trust that their safety is of your upmost important.
