3 Tips for Opening Your Business and Getting Back to Work Safely

Here in the mid-Atlantic region, Covid-19 restrictions are lifting soon and many businesses are tasked with creating a plan to re-open. Whether you are currently checking CDC guidelines, reviewing state and local government mandates, or simply trying to piece it all together in a plan to keep your employees and customers safe, we understand that there are a lot of moving parts to putting together your company specific plan to return to work safely.

Here at Ampa Events, we’ve also been hard at work doing exactly what you have been doing in happy anticipation of getting back to work safely! As a result, we’ve put together some tips to share with you to consider as you prepare for your own business re-opening in the coming weeks and months.

1. Do Something!

Are you overwhelmed with all the information that you’ve been gathering? Worried you may be missing something in your plan? The reality is you probably are. Uncertainty can be paralyzing. Do your best to plan and anticipate. Then get started. Some action with as much advanced planning as possible is better than no action and putting off critical re-opening decision

2. Take a Measured Approach: Build Flexibility into Your Re-Opening Plan

As a first step, Ampa’s designers are recommending solutions such as light weight portable countertop sneeze guards and portable walls. Portable products provide flexibility and will allow for quick adjustments while ordering more permanent solutions. Sometimes the initial plan may not be perfect. Customer traffic patterns or employee work flow in the new normal may not be exactly as you anticipated. Flexible solutions are the best first step. Laser cut plexiglass and acrylic sneeze guards and windows with slotted feet are easy to work with. Buy a few of these and then watch the new traffic patterns and how employees, guests, and customers move through your space. Observe and determine better, more permanent solutions. These portable solutions can then be moved to other areas such as employee break rooms or conference rooms. Incrementally add to your Covid-19 solutions,  sneeze guards, portable walls, glass countertop solutions and extensions to the tops of cubicles. With more information about work flow and customer traffic patterns, you will feel less “uncertain” and more comfortable with larger investments and more permanent solutions.
