As if health and safety in the workplace wasn’t already stressful to manage, now business owners, management and HR departments need to worry about a new kind of health hazard, and it’s called coronavirus.
The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly changed the world as we knew it. At the flip of a coin, businesses were forced to shut shop and our streets were virtually empty. It hasn’t been an easy time at all, especially for those who have fallen ill from the virus or had loved ones that have contracted it.
But with falling turnover as a major concern for many businesses, owners are eager to get back to normal, even though normal might look a little different now. In eagerness, many workplaces have implemented new measures to return back to “work as usual”. But it’s not all over yet, and that means putting employee wellness first with the right health and safety requirements in the workplace to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
The importance of health and safety is paramount, now more than ever before. And whilst there is a rush to get businesses running at 100% again, employee health measures shouldn’t be rushed.
Safety in the workplace and protecting touchscreens and devices against coronavirus
Making sure employee health is a top priority means business owners probably have a lot of questions.
How can I best protect my staff from coronavirus in the workplace? What should the distance between workers be? What extra precautions do I need to put in place? And most importantly, how can I do my very best to reduce the risk of a coronavirus outbreak at work?
Well, simply put, you can have all the health and safety practices in the workplace lined up, but the best measures you can put in place, are measures that eradicate the virus.
For us, a key driver of working safely means protecting every touchscreen and device we use every day. Seems like an impossible task, right? Wrong.
When the workplace and the rest of the world we live in are filled with shared touchscreens, it seems like the spread of coronavirus is evident and of high risk. But Kastus now offers a range of antimicrobial and antiviral screen protectors that are easy to retrofit to commercial touchscreens, while our technology has been scientifically proven to neutralise human coronavirus on treated surfaces.
All employees have a right to safe and hygienic surfaces at work. With Kastus your employees don’t need to figure out how to avoid touching screens, they can interact with confidence, knowing that the screen protectors neutralize 99% of human coronavirus and block up to 99.99 per cent of surface bacteria such as E.coli and SA.
How our bacteria-fighting technology works
Our patented technology is sprayed onto the screen glass or screen protector surfaces during manufacturing, then locked into the surface during firing at temperatures over 600°C. The antimicrobial and antiviral properties are primarily activated by natural light, while the technology also includes a patented ingredient that fights bacteria and viruses in the dark too. This means that the coating provides enhanced 24/7 screen protection, helping to protect the touchscreens and devices we use every day.
A step in the right direction
In the present times of COVID-19, safety in the workplace really does go far beyond masks and hand sanitizer. It starts by protecting the touchscreens and devices your employees touch every day.
Are you ready to give your employees peace of mind in the workplace? Enhancing the screens on your devices with antimicrobial and antiviral protection is one of the first steps you can take in creating a safer environment for your employees. With Kastus on your side, you can ensure that operations run smoothly using shared screens, whilst reducing the spread of harmful germs at the same time.
