As we begin Phase 1 of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown, pressure on businesses to reopen, and get people back in the workplace safely, is growing. We are working with businesses who are using the Safe Spacer to add to any Covid secure measures they already have in place.

In February the Government announced its four-step plan to lead England out of lockdown. These phased measures aim to ease  the Country out of lockdown toward an anticipated and premeditated return to “normal life”.

The roadmap means that many businesses  (such as non-essential retail, hairdressers, public buildings like libraries and museums, and outdoor hospitality and leisure) will be able to re-open as early as the 12th of April (this date has been mooted as the earliest possible date.)

However, as much as employers and employees alike will want to retrieve a sense of normality with the race to vaccinating the nation underway, Covid-19 social distancing measures will still have to be respected during this transitionary period and into the coming months and year ahead.

To make sure that businesses maintain Covid-secure throughout the reopening of the nation, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are re-enforcing spot checks and inspections to ensure workplaces are respecting social distancing and remaining Covid-secure.

They are doing this by calling, visiting, and inspecting all types of businesses, in all areas, to check the measures put in place follow social distancing guidance.

WorkSafe has created a solution to ensure workplaces can re-open in a Covid-secure way. The Safe Spacer proximity devices and WorkSafe workplace contact tracing software can enable businesses to ensure their employees can maintain a safe 2-metre social distance. The WorkSafe software will enable users to trace any breaches of this regulation and manage a potential spread of disease and minimize the impact on the business whilst keeping people safe.
