Essential Signs for COVID-19 in the Workplace

Safety signs are a common sight at most workplaces. Every business has a responsibility to provide workers with a safe work environment, which often involves using signage to remind individuals of safety practices.

The spread of COVID-19 has increased the need for safety signs around the workplace. Social distancing, no physical contact, and hand washing are just a few of the precautions that businesses must take to help reduce the spread of the coronavirus.

Here is a closer look at essential signage and posters for COVID-19.

General Safety Signs for COVID-19

Some of the most common COVID-19 safety protocols include practicing social distancing and avoiding direct contact. For example, we offer signage to remind individuals to stay at least 1.5 meters apart and avoid shaking hands. You may also use “please stand here” signs to direct visitors where to stand to comply with social distancing guidelines.

Hygiene Safety Signage for COVID-19

Workers and visitors should know to wash their hands after using the restroom. However, adding a reminder on the wall may help increase participation in general hygiene safety practices.

At Wilcox Safety & Signs, we have several hygiene signs that are suitable for any workplace, including simple reminders to wash your hands and signs with more detailed instructions. For example, you may encourage individuals to wash their hands with soap for at least 20 seconds before and after eating and after using the toilet.

Signs can also be used to highlight specific equipment or facilities, such as a hand sanitising station. Ensuring that these signs are prominently displayed helps increase the likelihood of workers and guests practising good hygiene.

Prohibition Signs for COVID-19 Policies

Prohibition signs are used to prohibit a behaviour in a particular area. These signs typically include a red circle with a 45-degree diagonal line from the upper-left to the lower-right. People also refer to prohibition signs as the “do not” signs.

Common COVID-19 related prohibition signs include notices prohibiting contact, such as encouraging people not to shake hands. You may also place a “COVID No Contact” sign to inform visitors that your office is employing a “no contact” policy.

Increase the Safety of Your Workplace with COVID-19 Safety Signs

COVID-19 safety signs and posters are available in different sizes and materials to suit your needs. You can use signage to make your COVID-19 policies clear to all workers and visitors. Make sure that your signs are prominently displayed to increase compliance.

General safety signs, hygiene safety signs, and prohibition signs are just a few of the signs and posters offered by Wilcox Safety & Signs for increasing COVID-19 safety and awareness in your workplace. Along with the designs discussed, you can order custom COVID-19 signage to meet your specific needs.

Due to COVID-19, businesses must now follow a wide range of constantly changing regulations and safety guidance. Putting up posters and signs is one of the steps that you can take to help stop the spread.
