How to Use Office Cubicles for Safety after COVID-19
As the COVID-19 shows signs of weakening, businesses, and offices have started opening up again. Government-imposed lockdowns are being lifted, and people are once again allowed to venture outside, albeit with precautionary measures.
While the COVID-19 situation has gotten better, we must not become too complacent. The coronavirus is not over yet. We still need to exercise caution when going out and abide by rules asking us to take extreme care.
As our offices open up, some changes are to be expected. Office cubicles might just come back into trend, as they enable employees to maintain the necessary social distance and give them some level of safety against potential carriers of the virus.
Office Cubicles Back in Style
In the recent past, the office cubicle system had all but disappeared from office spaces. As workplaces aimed to maintain more open and interactive workplaces, the cubicles were replaced by more open-plan offices.
Now, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the cubicles may be making their way back into our offices! While some may love the news as it affords them more privacy and safety, for some, it might be disappointing to not be able to easily interact and socialize with their co-workers the same way.
Divisions or partitions may be erected on correct workstations to make sure the social distancing rules are followed by everyone. Plexiglass walls, food shields, or even cardboards may be used by offices to convert open work stations into makeshift cubicles for the time being.
Many offices are working tirelessly to revamp the workplaces in order to make it ready to welcome employees back into the offices. It is almost certain that the cubicles will be back at work by the time most employees return. And while it hinders socializing, it ensures our safety, which is definitely higher up on the priority list for now.
Businesses and offices have a responsibility to their employees and have to provide the necessary conditions for their employees to continue coming in to work without compromising on their safety. Second-hand, used office cubicles are a great way to ensure your employees’ safety, without incurring too much cost.
