Using Barriers, Dividers, & Panels for Workplace Social Distancing

Protect Returning Workers With Barriers

As stay at home orders are lifted in certain regions, people are finding themselves back at work. Whether employees are working in offices or retail stores, they need proper protection in order to maintain social distancing. To protect your staff, you should employ barriers and dividers around the workplace to minimize physical contact between workers and other people.

Take a look at some of the barriers and dividers OP Plus is providing to help employees who are returning to work. We have options for a wide range of industries.

For people working at retail stores and grocery stores, the Deflecto Mounting Safety Barrier is an ideal option. These barriers are quite durable, making them ideal for any type of frontline worker. Some of these barriers provide reach-through openings right in the center, making them effective for cashiers.

Regular barriers with no openings are also available, and these are suitable for office environments. Different barrier models can also be combined to suit an employee’s specific needs. All the barriers will easily mount to any cash register, desk, or countertop, so setting them up will be a breeze.

Quartet Workstation Privacy Screen

Woman Demonstrating the Quartet Workstation Privacy Screen

For offices that use cubicles, the Quartet Workstation Privacy Screen is one of the best options we offer. This screen slides across the opening for a cubicle workstation, creating a clear barrier between workers. In turn, this keeps office workers safe as they work on their daily assignments.

It also helps to drown outside noise, which helps to create a distraction-free working environment. Thanks to the translucent screen, workers can still converse with others when needed, all while keeping at a nice distance from one another.
