Safety screens protecting you wherever you may go
We’re half way through 2020 and what a year it has been. No one really knows what to expect, however as the world learns to adjust and live with taking extra safety precautions we’re seeing more businesses reopen and things slowly go back to normal, or a version of normal that we once knew.
With this new normal many businesses have made sure to look after their employees and their customers by installing safety screens. These screens are in place to protect employees when returning to their workplace. Many businesses that were deemed essential, such as grocery stores, pharmacies, doctors offices and transportation, acted quickly and installed these safety screens early on.
Who would’ve thought that we would be living in a world where you’re separated from the friendly checkout person at your local supermarket? They now sit behind a protective screen and although it’s something to get used to, you know that it’s for their safety and your own.
Grocery stores are not the only place you’ll find these protective screens. They have been popping up in many stores, venues and businesses.
Almost any place that has people enter and exit will have protective screens. We’ve seen them in shopping centres, government offices, banks, and many reception waiting areas. Open plan offices which do not have many external visitors, have also added these screens to keep employees safe from one another.
The transportation industry, mainly taxis, added safety screens to some of their vehicles before the current health situation started. The most well known taxis with these screens are London’s Black Cabs, who installed safety screens to protect their drivers from aggressive passengers. Other taxi companies around the world have tried and tested the screens for driver protection, however, now these screens are being used to protect drivers and passengers from COVID-19.
Driving schools, rideshare and car dealers have taken the extra step to assure their businesses remain open and their customers are cared for.
Car dealerships are installing protective screens to help customers test drive vehicles while the sales representative can also sit in the vehicle and both are protected from one another.
Some restaurants have taken measures to ensure their patrons are protected by installing safety screens at tables. Families dining together will not be separated from one another, however if friends catch up then there is a likelihood of them having protective screens between each other. Bars have also made sure to keep their bar staff safe and have installed safety screens in front of the cash register.
Some gyms around the world have opened their doors again and many people are rushing to get back in and work off that isolation bulk they have acquired over the last few months. To protect customers from one another, gyms have installed protection screens between cardio machines, although this may look strange, it is definitely a great solution for gyms to keep operating and customers to stay in shape.
Using these protective screens, for many businesses, is a great way of staying open and ensuring their business stays afloat while customers are also benefiting from them by being able to continue with life as they used to know it – albeit a little different.
