The pandemic spurred a huge demand for signage in the workplace to make people aware of new rules, hurriedly passed legislation and general safety requirements. With this in mind, you may have had to install a variety of these new signs in your business as you opened back up to customers and employees. However, you should think about how additional signage could enhance your workplace and create a more efficient and organised environment at the same time. So, why should you have a fresh look at your business operation from a signage and graphic perspective?
Inform and Identify
Some business owners may be so involved in their organisation that they may assume that people know what to do or where to go. They may think that a process should be intuitive, but they may not be taking into account the needs of some individuals or the fact that people are often distracted and maybe thinking about other things. If your facility may be lacking in some of these areas, take time to design and manufacture signs that can help people identify and inform them what to do.
You may need to introduce signs on ceilings, walls, and even floors to provide the information necessary to help people interact with your business. You may want to help your employees as well by printing out important company policies on wall graphics, posters or prints.
If you employ a lot of people, you will undoubtedly have staff turnover and will bring in new faces from time to time. Help them be more productive by printing out essential instructions or placing appropriate labels on key equipment. Employees will thank you and feel that they are in a more productive and "switched on" space.
It's Not Always Obvious
Remember, do not take anything for granted. You should strive to ensure that people do not make mistakes or, worse still, risk injury due to inattention or uncertainty. Therefore, you should go above and beyond to draw attention to the risks or point out what people should be doing, even if that may seem to be obvious. It's better to print and install signs now than deal with any incident in the future.
General Workplace Safety
Workplace safety will be a very hot topic for some time to come as the country emerges from the pandemic. Make sure that your signs are always in place, up-to-date and in good condition, and use this opportunity to make your workspace a better environment.
