Approaching A Return To Work
Companies across the country are starting to think about and plan for bringing a reduced workforce back into the office. But with evidence of how fast a virus such as Covid-19 can spread, it is clear that buildings and office layouts that contributed to a healthy work environment even just a couple of months ago are now a risk to employees’ health and safety.
So what does a healthy office look like in a post-corona world?
From past experiences with other highly transmittable diseases, such as measles and SARS, we have learned that office buildings with antiquated ventilation and layout plans can be one of the main culprits in spreading disease.
Conversely, an office building that takes into account the points set out below, can actively contribute to the fight against spreading the virus.
Only employees essential for business operations should be required to work in the office.
- Staff who can work from home should be allowed to do so.
- Vulnerable staff members should be helped to work from home wherever possible.
- On-going checks on the health of those in the office as well as the wellbeing of those working from home.
The nine most important foundations a company should focus on improving are:
- Air quality
- Thermal health
- Dust & pests
- Safety & Security
- Water quality
- Lighting and views
By improving on these foundations not only reduces employees' risk of infection, but also improves their overall health, and by implication, productivity.
