Social distancing signage for your workplace 

The government has released its ‘COVID-19 secure’ guidelines to help UK employers get their businesses back up & running and workplaces operating as safely as possible. From shops to building sites, takeaways to offices, the guidelines are very much focussed on social distancing signage, floor markings and posters to guide, remind and instruct, so we’ve created this simple guide to signage and floor markings to help company owners and business managers achieve a safe environment quickly, easily and within budget:

Floor markings to implement one-way systems, create zones and help people maintain social distancing:

We can produce bespoke, full-colour floor graphics with certified slip resistance. They can be cut to square or CNC cut to shape as needed. The material we use is tough and tear resistant, withstanding everything from stiletto heels to vehicles, and can be applied to smooth hard floors, like concrete and tiling, and low-pile carpets.

Signage to manage flows of people like queues, entry and exit points and rights of way:

Pull-up banner stands work well for prompts in entrances which tend to have plenty of space for additional information.
We can also create space dividers in a wide range of shapes and sizes, up-to 6m long and designs printed on both sides, to create two-way traffic or 2m zoned areas.

Social distancing rules & reminders at entrances:

We can produce a range of signage options for outdoor entrances such as A frames, outdoor flags, with a variety of bases dependent on the requirement, and internal window graphics facing outwards on entrance windows and doors.

Reminders & signage around the workplace around maintaining good hygiene and social distancing standards:

Reminder signage can be printed on a variety of materials, both permanent and with removable and re-positionable adhesives that don’t leave any marks. Other options include free standing poster displays, which can be positioned anywhere, or hanging double-sided display boards from ceilings.

Training and informative materials for workers returning to work:

We can print digitally onto synthetic materials to allow the printed product to be sanitised – perfect for manuals and instruction cards.

Guidelines or information, such as emergency contact details, can be printed onto credit card-sized materials which are ideal for workers to carry in their wallets. We can do these as single cards or fold-out concertina style (still credit card-sized) to allow more information to be printed.

Alternatively, pocket-sized guide booklets can be printed down to a size of 75mm x 120mm, which is also a user-friendly size for workers.

Of course, digital print is both super flexible and cost effective, and we can respond quickly to turn your initial print around, plus react swiftly to produce any updated materials as further government guidelines are revealed.

We work in partnership with designers, artworkers and directly with businesses to develop bespoke packages of print solutions that are tailored to each specific workplace – taking into account surfaces, size of workforce, number of entrances, type of company and the finer details of the business operations.
