Your employees and customers will want to know your plan for COVID safety, from the way you handle orders to your cleaning strategies. We’ve compiled a few workplace safety tips by area in your business (outside, entrance, etc.) along with health safety products that make this transition a bit easier.

Health & Safety Product Ideas for the Workplace

From custom signs to “wash your hands” labels, each of these health and safety products are geared towards making your business both seen and safe.

1. Outside: Custom Signs

Now’s the time to shout it from the rooftops that you’re re-opening your business! Update your typical signage with any updated information: business hours, indoor/outdoor seating now available, or new services. Also try different locations for your signage: perhaps a sandwich board sign or a sail sign directing people to your location and a banner on the face of your business.

  • 7.5′ Value Streamline Razor Sail Sign Kit: this long-lasting feather flag will get attention with its full color graphics. Also comes with a steel base for stability.
  • Deluxe Double-Sided A-Frame Kit: no matter which direction, passersby are sure to see your sign. You can easily change out the signboards when you’re ready to advertise a new special or promotion.
  • 6’x3′ 1-Sided Vinyl Banner: made from sturdy vinyl, this full color banner can hang outside your business through all seasons.

You can find even more business reopening products like custom totes, magnets, and more.

Provide a cup of stylus pens (our pick is the Alpha Soft Touch Pen with Stylus®), for customers to use on the checkout screen. They can flip it over to sign their receipt, too. Encourage them to take the pens home with them or include a second cup for the used pens you can sanitize later.
  • Contour Pen with Antimicrobial Additive: offer the ultimate in pen peace-of-mind with the Contour, which has been treated with an antimicrobial additive prevents the growth of kills fungi, bacteria, yeasts, and algae.
