How To Create A Safe Space When Resuming Work Amid COVID-19
Following the launch of Phase 2 to reopen the economy, more businesses will be allowed to return to the workplace and officially start work once again.
However, it is not to say that business, socialising, or the workspace design will be as per normal – in fact, several changes will have to be made in ensuring the workplace conditions are safe for employees to work in.
Hence, whether it’s in your plan to acquire a new, cheap office space for lease or just return to your workplace – here are a few steps to keep in mind.
Make a rough sketch of your workplace, the different rooms (if applicable), desk dimensions, and draw out the various ways the tables and furniture can be arranged in to ensure social distancing. For example, you could separate small tables which were originally grouped together for discussion and collaboration reasons. Meanwhile, if you’re struggling to come up with a clear structure – search up room design templates on the Internet.
Besides setting up your workspace the right way for the safety of your employees, ensuring your space contains the right standard facilities is just as important. We have the cheapest self storages and workspaces that vary from 6 sqft up until 730 sqft for our storage spaces, whilst workspaces begin from 88 sqft onwards. Additionally, workspaces are furnished with air conditioning, a powerpoint, and lighting. At the same time, we have appealing lease terms in which business can choose to opt for lease for a short duration among our self storages and workspaces. Moreover, you’ll get the chance to switch your space by contract transferring to a whole range of services or products within our leasehold or even our well-established parent company, LHN Group, for instance, including options like industrial and commercial spaces, vending machine locations, and continuing on.
Put up barriers whenever possible
If shifting furniture to separate your staff is not an option; perhaps, barriers may do the trick. With adequate finances on hand, you may opt for higher-quality and much more aesthetic barriers to fit in with your workspace appearance. However, if the cost is a concern – for the short-term period, you can use large pieces of wood or cardboard, polyethene plastic sheeting or even plexiglass for a cubicle-like separation.
If you have not selected a suitable workspace, and the rent price is of top priority to you – then, you can look towards Work+Store for an affordable office space.

Keep your workspace clean
As surface and hand disinfecting wipes as well as cleaning products may be hard to get a hold of, there are different DIY solutions you can create and use in your workplace. From bleach to hydrogen peroxide – there’s a lot of cleaning tools at your disposal which can easily kill germs. For example, you just have to mix 5 tablespoons of pure bleach with every gallon of water for your own, customised disinfecting solution.
Other than making sure your workplace is spick and span, productivity and collaboration are two equally important factors. At Work+Store, we have the cheapest self storages and workspaces that can even operate as ancillary offices, letting employees from different departments come together and manage several tasks – marketing or manufacturing related. Fusing a work and storage space into one introduces a unique and creative solution that allows for easier handling over logistics procedures, efficient goods procurement processing, and refined customer service.
While your business may be allowed to resume operations, you’ll still have to take safety precaution in the workplace by implementing certain measures.
The importance of putting in place the appropriate safety and health measures are necessary for the wellbeing of your employees. Hence, if you have not prepared your workplace in such a way – make sure to take the required action before employees officially return to work. Even if your business is not permitted to resume work just yet – staying prepared beforehand and paying heed to the various safety measures are crucial. In the meantime, Work+Store still grants access to our self storages and workspaces. Existing tenants will just have to ensure they follow the implemented measures and rules accordingly as per what the government has put into action. Working hand in hand, whether it be through social distancing or putting our masks, are simple, little actions that will go a long way in slowing the spread of the virus.
