Returning to Work After COVID-19
With COVID-19 still around, returning to work involves difficult decisions. With limited information and uncertainty as to the future, businesses are having to create their own lockdown exit strategies.
Increasingly businesses are opting to use security companies to monitor entry & exit conditions, along with any social distancing and mask wearing that is felt to be desirable.
By doing so, it takes away some of the stress and worry from company employees. Instead of having to spend time dealing with COVID-19 security issues and the potential customer conflict, employees can concentrate on their own jobs. This enables employees to be more productive and efficient, helping companies recover from the nightmare of the past months.
Working with specialists to create a clear strategy for exiting previous COVID-19 restrictions allows businesses to utilise the expert skills and knowledge of a security company already accustomed to providing this type of service.
Face masks, Sanitisation and social distancing
Security staff are fully trained in COVID-19 procedures and are able to provide a suitable service immediately on arrival at premises. Security staff management ensure that the security staff on duty are kept fully informed of any changes or requirements in COVID-19 procedures that may be need by Government, health authorities as well as store and company policies.
The rapidly changing situation, and the greater reliance on individual responsibility, means that there is constant potential for conflict over issues like mask wearing or sanitisation. Having well trained security staff ready to diffuse such situations, taking the pressure away from company employees who may be worried about their own safety.
Without a crystal ball, it is virtually impossible to say what the future is going to be like. There are so many uncertainties, especially with new COVID variants appearing and the changing vaccination rates.
Taking positive action to help your employees achieve a safe working environment as well as protecting customers makes sense. Using a security company to deal with entry & exit, sanitisation and diffusing potential conflict, ensures that businesses can concentrate on providing a safe environment and creating a framework for future business success.
