Limit the risk of contracting Covid-19 by adhering to Social Distancing
measures. In addition to this, it is important to wear your face mask whilst in the office space. This way, you keep both yourself, and your team members at minimal risk. Be sure to wash your hands regularly when using office supplies or when having contact with other people, and when unable to do so, use hand sanitiser. Ensure you stick to a cleaning routine for your machine to avoid any chance of contracting Covid-19, including external and internal cleaning. This way, any germs can be killed prior to spreading.

Key health and safety measures
Protecting the health and safety of your employees and yourself, within the workplace is paramount. Here are some of the most crucial measures you should take to keep the office safe:
- • Continue to follow relevant national and global guidance, including from the Government, NHS and the World Health Organisation (WHO).
- • Prior to returning into the office, carry out appropriate risk assessments for the environment. These will cover risks posed by the premises, work conditions (distance between workstations) and the composition of the workforce.
- • Transparent communication with the team will be beneficial. Think about providing guidance and establishing protocols on the workplace measures you have in place.
- • Reconsider working hours and travel arrangements – for example, staggering start and end times. This would be an ideal way to staff commuting at peak travel hours. Encourage staff to use modes of transport that reduce exposure to others (e.g. walking or cycling, where possible). For staff who have long, unavoidable commutes, consider whether they can continue to work from home (or continue to be furloughed). Prohibit non-essential travel to work also.
