The first thing you need to do is to make room in your storage space so that your employees can move around comfortably while maintaining social distancing norms.
It may also be necessary to hire a contractor or consult a designer to implement renovations like minor face-lifts or other kinds of important structural updates. Particularly, it’s crucial to look for experienced professionals who are able to deliver according to your demands and business objectives, which in this case would be creating a safe and healthy working environment.
Below, we have put together a few points you must keep in mind while revamping your space to reopen during the COVID-19 crisis.
Separate room for tasks and visitors
If possible, try to separate your space into two parts where one is solely for any potential visitors while the other is to carry out all kinds of daily operations – be it sorting of inventory or packaging. This ensures that you limit interaction between employees and customers as much as possible if there are any visitors coming down to your space.

Try to ensure contactless interaction as much as possible
It could refer to implementing useful technology like keycard operated doors or even installing RFID or point-of-sale technology to encourage customers to make payment via contactless methods like debit cards and credit cards. Such implemented methods will help to reduce the number of common surfaces touched by your employees regularly.
We’ve got you covered with our 24/7 access card security system to minimise contact with other staff or guests. Round-the-clock CCTV surveillance is available across our self storages and work and storage spaces to ensure your unit is secured. Additionally, our work and storage spaces can also help to support your core business activities and tasks such as manufacturing or marketing. Selected units even come with standard facilities like air conditioning, a powerpoint, and lighting which are already included in the service rates. Moreover, when it comes to our tenancy terms – ensures flexibility as we allow tenants to opt for a short tenure period and the option to change to a variety of other products or services within our premises or even our parent firm, like an industrial unit, event location, and so on.
If you have too many workstations together in one place, you may have to separate them to ensure a 1-metre distance. Otherwise, you will have to use dividers between desks that are shared among employees to ensure they maintain enough distance apart from each other. But if you have enough budget, then you can create more substantial partitions to ensure a safer distance.
With Work+Store, you’ll find the cheapest self storages and work and storage spaces with a wide variety of unit sizes to meet your space requirements. Storage unit sizes start from 6 sqft and vary up until 730 sqft, whereas our work and storage spaces start from 88 sqft.

As you’re renovating your space, bear in mind that you have to put all the necessary precautions in place to alleviate employees’ fears and create a safe work environment.
While many businesses have already reopened or are still in the midst of resuming operations, the threat of COVID-19 is still present. Hence, your business will need to put together an existing plan for safety and health precautionary measures to keep your working conditions as safe as possible. By ensuring a sufficient supply of sanitisers, masks, or disinfecting wipes – all these little steps can help ensure that your employees will be well-taken care of.
