Social Distancing and Hygiene

Hygiene Solutions | Sneeze Screens and Hand Hygiene

Incorporating safe and hygienic working practices has become essential for businesses in recent years. At UK POS, we supply a complete range of hygiene products and sign displays for a variety of industries that will help your company to remain a clean environment for staff and customers alike.

Do I need workplace hygiene products?

Workplace hygiene products are always an important part of health and safety practices. Hygiene stations, such as automatic hand sanitiser dispensers, are particularly useful for businesses to place at entryways.

There are many other options that you may want to consider too, particularly when interacting closely with the public. Sneeze screens and face coverings help to create an instant barrier between people in places where good hygiene is essential, such as hospitals, doctors' offices and pharmacies.

Ways to improve hygiene at work

  • Use cough and sneeze barriers. Using sneeze barriers will help to prevent the transmission of infections between staff and customers.
  • Use directional signage and floor stickers. This helps to ensure that people know where they can't go and in which direction they should move.
  • Provide PPE for staff. Provide shields, face masks and gloves for staff where necessary.
  • Make workplace hygiene products accessible. Incorporate hygiene stations into your workplace, particularly in busy areas and entryways.

What are sneeze guards?

A sneeze screen (aka sneeze guard) is a form of protective screen which creates a physical barrier to prevent the spread of infection from coughs and sneezes. We supply a choice of plastic screen styles, including countertop and hanging options.

Do you supply social distancing products for retail?

Absolutely. We have a selection of checkout screens and sneeze guards to protect your cashiers when they're serving customers. We have lightweight screens which are repositionable and instantly slot together, and screens which can be screwed to your countertops for a more secure solution.

Do you supply hygiene solutions for offices?

Just like in retail and hospitality environments, large office buildings will benefit from the use of workplace hygiene solutions. For reception desks, you may wish to install some sneeze screens, as well as placing hand sanitiser dispensers nearby to ensure safer interactions with the public.
