So as the country gets back to work, employers will want to be assuring both their staff and their customers that the environment they are in is safe.

Getting staff back to work is exciting, but also many employees may be feeling worried or nervous. When they first come back in, go through all the things that you have done to ensure safety, as well as listening to any questions or concerns they may raise and addressing them. Getting staff feeling happy and motivated is important, and someone such as motivational speaker UK based Jamie McDonald could be a good idea to get staff back raring to go again.

When it comes to customer safety of course it hugely depends on what sort of a business you run. But clear markers indicating routes in and out of the building and limiting the amount of people allowed in in one go are good ways to ensure safety. Perspex screens are being used a lot as well and these are really handy if you need to be quite close to someone – for example to serve them at a till, but also acts as a barrier preventing spread of disease between people.
