As a workspace provider, the safety and wellbeing of our team and our members is our priority. With that in mind, we continue to monitor government guidance and to review, and update, this policy over time as deemed appropriate.
We also ask that you help us all stay healthy and minimise risk by being careful and considerate to your fellow members, and be aware of, and follow, the latest personal guidance.
Here are the social distancing measures we’ll have in place at Work.Life coworking spaces and our managed offices, to ensure our spaces are safe for everyone.
Work.Life Coworking Spaces – Safety Measures
1. Increased cleaning for high touch points
Cleaning will play a big part across of all our workspaces. Our cleaning staff will be present in the spaces throughout opening hours, ensuring that all areas are cleaned multiple times a day. High touch points such as door handles, sink taps, coffee machines, lift buttons, and printers will be sanitised more regularly to ensure they can be used safely. All our spaces will also receive a thorough sanitisation every morning prior to the start of the working day.
2. Hand sanitiser and hand washing facilities available
Members are encouraged to wash their hands regularly, as well as after visiting higher-touch-point areas like the coffee machine or printer. Signage will be installed as reminders to wash your hands, and to identify sanitiser stations and wipe down kits.
3. If you’re showing symptoms, please stay at home
If you find yourself experiencing any coronavirus symptoms, we kindly ask that you remain at home to keep yourself and others in the space safe. Our team is testing regularly and following the same guidance.
4. We’ve sanitised all internal fan coil units in our air systems to ensure high quality air
In line with government advice, this will be regularly monitored. We’re working closely with landlords on further measures to ensure high quality, fresh, air – such as ‘fresh air blasts’ of the system and replacing filters throughout the systems.
5. We’ve conducted a thorough fogging treatment of all spaces
We have used a fogging treatment which provides cleaning and disinfecting of both hard and soft surfaces, dealing rapidly and effectively with an extensive list of bacteria, viruses, fungi and moulds, including Coronavirus.
6. Masks are not compulsory, but encouraged
Mask wearing is not compulsory in our spaces, however we encourage wearing them, especially if you may be meeting as a larger group in an enclosed space.
For those using our workspaces, or planning a return to work, we’ve also prepared the following ‘stay safe’ suggestions. These guidelines are to help keep individuals, teams, and other members safe and healthy within our office spaces.
- Keep your seat for the whole day
- Wash your hands frequently
- We recommend a good old walk-and-talk instead of the phone booth, but if you choose to use the booth please remember to wipe it down after use
- If you start to show symptoms, please stay home
