We will have new protocols to ensure everyone's safety which will mean new safety rules for the building and your offices. We wanted to share a few practices in place to ensure we always provide you with safe, high-quality workspace. Your health is our top priority.
As you return, you will see a great deal more signage in the office. There will be floor stickers giving direction on social distancing, one-way traffic direction in order to alleviate unintended incidental contact, wall/door/bathroom signs encouraging hand washing, mask wearing in common areas, and new conference room capacity restrictions, break room procedures. These signs will encourage everyone to adhere to social distancing procedures recommended by the CDC as well as used on hospital floors to limit germ transfer and promote better hygiene.
We are installing automatic touch-free soap dispensers, paper towel dispensers, and sanitizer dispensers as well as utilizing our existing touchless water bottle filler, ButterflyMX access control system promoting application use rather than touch screen use, and we will have two touchless infrared thermometers at the reception desk for those who want to have their temperature tested.
NEW CLEANING PROTOCOLS
NEW CLEANING PROTOCOLS
We have increased our cleaning crews to clean every day and they will be disinfecting all touch points including stairway railings, all door handles, countertops, desk surfaces, and kitchen cabinets. In addition, staff will be disinfecting all touch-points hourly, and will have disinfectant wipes in all conference rooms and around any common areas and politely ask our members to help and wipe down the surfaces respectively used.
We have upgraded our HVAC units with an air purification system called GPS Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization. The NPBI technology attacks and kills viruses, mold spores and bacteria. The ions steal away hydrogen from the pathogens, leaving them to die, and leaving you with clean and healthy indoor air.
We are restricting all cups, plates, and flatware used to be disposable provided in all kitchen areas. Therefore, no common glass cups, coffee cups, utensils or flatware everyone will be using disposables to limit germ transfer from member to member and to keep our staff safe. Included with this, we shut off all ice machines.
VIRUS FREE ZONE
We are currently working with Sharklet Technologies, a Denver based company, to wrap all commonly used surfaces like door handles and banisters in their patented sharkskin technology which prohibits bacteria and virus from being able to rest on these surfaces. We are currently pricing out antimicrobial place mats made from brass and copper which viruses cannot live on and in fact explode just after a few minutes to use on conference room tables, exploring UV ray emitters above doorways which kill virus, again one-way pedestrian traffic, and emphasizing use of our rooftop conference room which is open air with the retractable wall to the rooftop deck. Lastly, we have our IT tweaking our state-of-the art ClearOne video conferencing system to promote the new normal of video conferencing.
WE'VE EXPANDED OUR PREVENTIVE MEASURES:
We will be providing disposable utensils, plates, bowels, cups, and napkins in all kitchens for your individual needs.
A thermometer will be provided at the front desk for your convenience
Professional cleaning and disinfecting all common areas including kitchens and bathrooms will occur daily. Also, all touch points will also be disinfected throughout the day.
Maintain 6 feet of distance between all members and persons in the building including conference rooms.
Face masks are required to enter the building and worn in high traffic areas
Hand sanitizer and sanitizer wipes will be readily available throughout the building
Hand washing highly encouraged in kitchens and bathrooms
TO OUR MEMBERS:
As for other ways to keep yourself healthy right now, the CDC is a great resource for ways to be proactive and some simple prevention techniques:
Clean hands frequently with soap and water (at least 20 seconds), or an alcohol-based hand rub.
Disinfect frequently touched surfaces like phones, ipads, and keyboards.
Cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing. Cough into your elbow crease if you must.
Do not shake hands. Fist-bump or elbow-bump instead.
Avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms.
Stay home if you are sick.
Get an annual flu vaccine if you have not had one.
For more information, please visit the Safer at Home Guidance which can be found at coloradosaferathome.com. We will continue to provide updates as new and pertinent information arises. In the meantime, please take all necessary measures to keep yourself, family and community safe and healthy.
We’ll continue to keep you updated with any new information or changes, but if you have any questions or want to know about more ways to support your immune health, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Email our team at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
We are updating Park's floor space to adhere to the continuation of social distancing and better hygiene. By using design to nudge behavior we want to control infection and mitigate health risk at Park through implementing these six design change categories:
SIGNAGE | TOUCHLESS INITIATIVE | NEW CLEANING PROTOCOLS |
AIR FILTRATION | ONE-TOUCH INITIATIVE | NO VIRUS ZONE
In this new world we have had to place a greater emphasis on professional distancing and demand a safer work environment. All revolves around a new frictionless way to co-exist in a professional office setting. We need a workplace that promotes health and wellbeing and to alleviate our members' concerns about spreading germs and social distancing as we all return to the workplace.
THESE INITIATIVES ARE BEING IMPLEMENTED AND WILL BE IMPLEMENTED AS TIME/PRODUCTS ARE AVAILABLE.
As always, we will encourage wearing a mask, hand washing, and hand sanitizing throughout the day. These three habits if adhered will likely make the largest impact in keeping our community virus-free.
We have and continue to give a lot of thought towards redesigning our space to focus on our membership's health and safety. We look forward to continuing to maintain our communities' connection and interaction, which is of significant value to us, while adhering to the continuation of
social distancing and better hygiene.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all navigate through this new normal together. We are working hard to ensure everyone feels safe in the office!
