Workplace social distancing solutions

Workplace Social Distancing Solutions

Boris Johnson has urged people living in Britain to go back into work if they can, signalling a significant shift away from the current government policy.

Mr Johnson said in an online question and answer session with the public on 10th July: ‘I want people to go back to work as carefully as possible. It’s very important that people should be going back to work if they can now’.

HSE Social Distancing Advice

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has published the following guidelines on making workplaces COVID-secure:

Where possible you should keep people 2m apart. If this is not viable, keeping 1m apart with risk mitigation is acceptable.

These are some of the things you can do:

  • use floor tape or paint to mark work areas
  • provide signage to remind people to keep a 2 m distance
  • use screens to create a physical barrier between people
  • have people working side-by-side rather than face-to-face
  • limit movement of people (rotating between jobs and equipment, using lifts and work vehicles, in high-traffic areas like corridors, turnstiles and walkways, allow only essential trips within buildings and between sites).

FSC Certification

FSC Certification

POSITIVE is delighted to announce that we have been FSC recertified for another year.

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) helps take care of forests and the people and wildlife who call them home.

FSC is an international, non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests.

The FSC system allows businesses and consumers to identify, purchase and use wood, paper and other forest products made with materials from well-managed forests and/or recycled sources.

FSC’s “tick tree” logo is used to indicate that products are certified under the FSC system. When you see the FSC logo on a label, you can buy forest products with confidence that you are helping to ensure our forests are alive for generations to come.

At the Positive Print Group, we only use paper and card that has come from well managed forests and/ or recycled sources and both Positive and Colouration hold FSC Chain of Custody Certifications.

Chain of Custody certification ensures that FSC materials and products have been checked at every stage of processing, so that customers purchasing FSC labelled products can be confident that they are genuinely FSC certified.

Looking for a sustainable solution? Contact us to discuss our range of FSC certified stocks and displaying the FSC logo on your printed materials.
