Office Floor Marking Tape for Social Distancing

People returning to their respective work environments often experience a good deal of stress after working from home (due to COVID-19). Employers can help alleviate some of this stress by setting up clear coronavirus policies — including masks and hand sanitizing stations — for employees inside the office, and even before they enter the workplace.

Managers and business owners should stay up-to-date with the CDC’s latest advice about how to safely handle the coronavirus. And while the novelty of this virus can make it frustrating to deal with (conflicting information and theories concerning COVID-19 abound), social distancing is one of the most effective tools we have at our disposal to stop the spread of this strange disease.

Social Distancing Tape

Social distancing tape, decals, floor mats, and signs placed around the office are essential items for the modern office. Tape and decals that demarcate the 6-foot (or 2-meter) security zones people need to maintain between one another can go a long way to creating a safer work environment.
If you want to ease your employees' anxieties while on the job, social distancing tape can help abate their worries by letting people know literally where they stand. By increasing space between workstations, staggering breaks and lunchtimes, as well as directing the flow of office traffic with tape, you will be fostering a securer workplace. These distancing measures will also let your employees know that you take their health seriously.

The Advantages of Using Social Distancing Tape

When your mark your office floors off with social distancing tape, COVID-19 floor decals and floor mats, people working in or visiting your office will have a better understating of how to behave (or not behave) in the office, and how to maintain safe distances.
Clear floor markings take the guesswork out of the safety equation. Employees can then place most of their focus on the jobs they were hired for, rather than worry if they're adhering to the latest coronavirus protocols or not.

Visual floor aids will let office workers know where to stand when lining up to use the restrooms, a vending machine (with hand sanitizers nearby, hopefully), or any space where people tend to congregate.
The right kind type of tape, while noticeably visible, won’t interfere with daily life. For example, people won’t have to worry about tripping over tape or decals. And staff who rely upon a cane or a wheelchair to move about shouldn’t have any issues with balance or mobility due to tape that’s flush against the floor.

Also, social distancing tape lets customers visiting your office know what's expected of them vis-à-vis COVID-19, which should make them feel more secure when doing business with your firm.

Tips on How to Use Office Floor Tape

Tape that comes in bright, vibrant colors is easier to notice. You can purchase tape and floor markers with specific coronavirus warnings printed on them as well. For example, Q Source Inc., which stocks an array of coronavirus protective equipment, carries social distancing floor tape that reminds people to stay at least six feet apart. Here are some of the floor markers we offer:

  •  Brady 170216 - Please Keep About 6 Feet (2m) Distance Floor Marking Tape
    This yellow warning tape, with a clear “Please keep about 6 feet (2m) distance floor” message prominently displayed on it, can be set out on your office floor (in increments that are at least 6 feet apart). This tape will remind staff to maintain the proper distance from coworkers in areas that tend to fill up with people. 

  •  Brady 170213 - Thank You for Practicing Social Distancing Sign
    This sturdy anti-skid vinyl floor sign will prompt staff to practice safe social distancing. During a busy day, employees might get distracted and forget about office COVID-19 protocols. Floor signs strategically placed around the building will help staff keep safety on the brain, while thanking them for their social-distancing efforts at the same time.

Employers can also deploy all kinds of durable anti-static floor tape around the office to direct traffic. Traffic and increased personal space can be managed through different tape shapes like arrows, Xs, and Ts. These shapes will let people know where they can loiter, and how they should navigate corridors and other common spaces.

You can lay bright tape squares (distanced apart) or social distancing entrance mats out as well. Employees can stand in or on these squares and mats while waiting for an elevator or access to an entrance.
Social distancing floor tape, signs, floor strips, and tape shapes can help you add an extra layer of social distancing safety to your office while reducing the risk of COVID-19 transmission at the same time.
