The COVID-19 crisis has impacted nearly every organization and operation in some way, shape, or form. However, companies are finding innovative ways to keep their business on track amidst the disruption. One such innovation is the development of employee separation panels, which offer a degree of safety and peace of mind among employees who are required to work within six feet of each other.
Our partners at Wirecrafters are deploying two options for these portable safety mechanisms: a standard separation panel and a heavy-duty separation panel. Both options are similar size – 6’ tall x 4’ wide – and feature a clear, 1/8”-thick polycarbonate window to maintain sightlines in the warehouse. The heavy-duty version’s window essentially extends from the top of the panel to the floor, while the standard version’s window shields the top 3’ of the panel.
Both products can be assembled with casters on the bottom, allowing for mobility and flexibility to meet the needs of your warehouse workers. These clear, portable panels can move from workstation to workstation to give employees a level of safety and protection against human-to-human contact.
While there is no accurate timetable for the lifting of social distancing requirements, these panels can act as a safety measure to keep your employees safe and productive while in your facility. By introducing these panels, warehouse managers can avoid disruptions ranging from employees feeling uncomfortable around one another to missing work because they may have contracted an illness.
In addition, investments in these panels will continue to pay off after the COVID-19 crisis has ended. There is always another flu or cold season around the corner, and these tools may be able to play a role in limiting the spread
