Demonstrating that your business is taking sensible steps and precautions to stem the spread of germs is a brilliantly practical way to show that you're doing your utmost for the health and wellbeing of those most important to your brand.
With the help of these simple promotional products, it will be that bit easier to ensure your team, customers and suppliers are all doing their bit to maintain best practices when it comes to social distancing, helping to slow the spread of Coronavirus and keep your workplace COVID secure.
Keeping Two Metres Apart Is Easy With Branded Signage
From freestanding promotional banners that serve as prompts to keep 2m apart to desktop-sized roller banners and printed floor stickers, we have a range of signage options available that will remind your colleagues and customers to maintain a distance from each other.
If your colleagues have become accustomed to working from home, they might need a refresher in keeping a suitable distance when back in a shared working environment. Similarly, if you're welcoming customers into a retail environment, it might be wise to make certain changes to your space in order to ensure people act as they're supposed to. Promotional banners and printed floor stickers are a great way to do this effectively.
With UK government guidelines on COVID-19 advising people to keep a minimum of two metres away from each other, it's essential to keep the message visible at all times, whether it's in-store or in an office. Whichever environment you work in, ensure safety for all those around you by investing in unmissable branded banners that are guaranteed to generate attention.
Easy to pop up and printed with your design in vibrant full colour, our Social Distancing Feather Banner Flags are available in four different sizes, meaning there's an option to suit whatever space you have available. Available with either a soft ground spike or a water base at a small additional cost, these sturdy banners are perfect for reminding those around you to keep safe. Only need one unit? No problem - there's no minimum order with these striking branded banners.
Similarly, for desktop signage - useful for reception areas or for displaying on team workspaces - look no further than our A4 Desk Roller Banners. These neatly-sized promotional banners are perfect for displaying health-and-hygiene messages to visitors and customers, as well as for displaying in communal areas such as the staff room or office kitchen. Similarly, our full colour social distancing posters are great for sticking up around a workspace or retail area; printed in either our standard social distancing design or your own corporate artwork, they offer unmissable visibility to your 'stay alert' messaging.
For truly unmissable messaging in any environment, our Social Distancing Floor Stickers are a must-have. Showing your artwork in unmissable full colour, these two-metre-wide branded stickers are ideal for reminding queuing customers and in-house team members alike to keep a safe 2m distance from each other. These fuss-free social distancing products are self-adhesive, non-slip and scuff-resistant, and are available for dispatch in as little as three working days.
It's also worth noting that these anti-slip branded stickers are suitable for use on floors inside shops and offices, as well as outdoors on tarmac and station platforms.
Choose Company Branded Face Masks For Staff Wellbeing
A simple branded face mask can really help your colleagues feel more comfortable when embracing the 'new normal' as they get back to work. Take our Custom Printed Reusable Face Masks, for example: these branded face masks are printed in full colour with the artwork of your choosing and are available with either a cord or elastic band attachment to make them as comfortable as possible for wear.
Similarly, our Disposable Branded Face Masks are a great pick for medical environments, such as doctor's surgeries, hospital waiting rooms, dentists and so on. Lightweight and cool, they're delivered in boxes of 50 units, meaning they can be quickly and easily distributed among your departments and offices as required.
Take things one step further with our My Kit Protection With Surgical Face Mask; each of these branded kits contains a face mask, a pair of disposable gloves and four cleansing wipes. A smart and timely promotional giveaway option for a huge range of industries and professions, they feature your full-colour branding on the exterior label of the kit, offering an extra pop of awareness for your business.
For workers who are struggling with finding ways to make their face masks or face coverings comfortable to wear, our branded Face Mask Straps are a practical solution. Ideal for relieving sore or aggravated ears, these simple medical-grade PP plastic straps are available in four colours and are clearly printed with your logo. (Also available in plain stock if preferred.)
Pick Hygiene Essentials To Keep Workspaces Clean
Ensuring your business has plenty of hand sanitiser in-stock - whether for use by team members or for making accessible to customers when they enter your premises - is a sensible place to start when it comes to upping the in-house hygiene factor. From our 30ml Refillable Hand Sanitiser Bottles (constructed from recyclable aluminium) to our 120ml Promotional Hand Sanitisers (which are printed with your full-colour branding on the label), we have a wide range of branded hand sanitiser products available.
Another good idea is to make sure your staff are topped up with packets of branded tissues; with guidelines suggesting sneezing into a tissue can be a means to limit the spread of germs, it's a no-brainer to ensure that there are plenty of tissues available - and even more so as we head into hayfever season. Our packs of Branded Tissues fit the bill perfectly and even feature your full-colour artwork on the label for extra awareness.
Our Hygiene Hook Keyring is another solid option to consider - and it's an eco-friendly promotional product choice, too! Constructed from 100% recycled plastic, these hygiene keys will help your customers and colleagues minimise contact with potentially contaminated surfaces, such as door handles and cashpoints. A promotional hygiene key branded with your logo allows users to push buttons and open doors without having direct hand contact with surfaces
Last but by no means least, we also have a selection of anti-bacterial desk essentials available for your consideration, which are ideal for giving to your colleagues as they return to the office or for offering to customers as health-savvy giveaways. The range includes everything from promotional mugs and branded metal water bottles to printed mouse mats and hardtop coasters, all covered with the patent-protected, fully-certified AntiBug® treatment.
