Welcome your employees back to the office with these solutions designed to keep everyone informed and protected.

Across the country, businesses are tentatively being given the green light to call their employees back into the office on a more regular basis.

A back-to-work transition like never before, Safe Work Australia is encouraging businesses to put COVID safe practices in place that address physical distancing, hygiene, and cleaning.

Welcome your employees back to the office with these solutions designed to keep everyone informed and protected.


Safe Work Australia advises that “It is important that you have signs and posters around the workplace to remind workers and others of the risks of COVID-19 and the measures that are necessary to stop its spread. This includes posters on what is COVID-19 and how you can stop it spreading, how to wash your hands and the physical distancing requirements.”

Position these reminders in and around building entrances, lifts, kitchens, bathrooms, and meeting rooms. You can use a mix of signage styles – A-Frames, floor and window graphics, banners and corflutes.


Even safety signs can be designed to catch the eye and in keeping with the company brand. Infuse them with additional brand statements in line with your company values and internal communications. Getting creative with fun and colourful signs directing foot traffic and managing numbers in lifts and encouraging use of hand sanitiser can play a part in boosting employee morale and are more likely to be remembered and followed.


These clear, safety screens are now everywhere including offices where they help prevent the spread of germs by acting as a physical barrier. Place them in shared work areas and offices to reduce germ spread among employees and visitors. Large panels can be installed in lobbies and lunch areas while smaller, portable barriers can be propped up between low-wall cubicles and on conference room tables. Easy to wipe down and disinfect as needed, consider applying custom graphics for privacy and visual warmth.


As your employees head back to the office, your COVID-19 compliant modifications are the key to safety in the new normal of work. The possibilities of what you can do are virtually endless, we have a lot of ideas and are here to help.
