smallbusiness

The Sampler Guard is perfect for non-permanent food station setups or any other temporary placement for extra protection that is needed. They are easy to move, transport with you, and they are super versatile for whatever situation may arise for when you’ve got to protect yourself, your product, and the customer! The Sampler Guard truly is a very great product with endless uses and the ability to remain functional and safe while also being conducive to smaller spaces.

That being said, we need to talk about this “small space” thing. Lots of small restaurants and other food-carrying stores are small and do not necessarily have the room to just have sneezeguards up all the time when they aren’t needed. The Sampler Guard is great for these spaces when the sneezeguards are in use, but what about when they aren’t needed? Where are you supposed to find the space to safely and effectively store these Sampler sneezeguards? This is where the wall rack comes into play.

The Body Guard: A Solution for Small Office Spaces

Body GuardT

Come on now, haven’t you ever thought that it would be cool to have a personal bodyguard? No, just me? Anyways… this is one bodyguard I can guarantee that you’ll want to have for sure. This Body Guard is a plexiglass, freestanding sneezeguard divider that would be perfect for small office spaces. It is a way to offer extra safety for all employees, but it also is a great way to divide an office space without cutting off the flow.

For example, with a few of these Body Guards, you would be able to build a type of “enclosure” that could be used for a meeting room equivalent or perhaps a break room. Honestly, your options are endless! The best part is that because it made of clear plexiglass, it doesn’t obstruct the view from other areas of the office, which allows it to let the office space feel better organized and even a little bigger. Traditional office dividers can feel clunky and make the space look even smaller. Another added bonus is that this is a much more sanitary solution than traditional dividers too.

You see, with the Body Guard sneeze guard, its simple and well-done design makes keeping office spaces clean easier! With one easy spray of a disinfectant and a wipe of a towel, you can clearly see that the Body Guard is clean! In comparison to traditional dividers that are usually covered with fabric, they can hold bacteria longer and be cumbersome to properly clean.

There are so many options for the Body Guard for small office spaces, and they can help create a more cohesive and safe workspace. In a world of despair during this pandemic, the better and safer a workspace is, I think all employees are appreciative of it. Get in touch with Sneezeguard Solutions to talk about specifics so you can get your Body Guard order placed today.

Of course, we all want to be open and serve our customers, but without the protection for ourselves and the customers, it can feel impossible to do! Places like salons, boutiques, and bakeries (to name a few) need extra precautions in place so that they can remain open and safe to the public. A salon sneeze guard could be the right call for you and your services if your business deals hands-on with customers.

Why the Desktop Divider is Crucial to Reintegrating In-Person Education

emptyschool

As a college student during COVID-19, it comes as no surprise that my education has gone in a very unexpected way. Many of my classes will only meet through Zoom or other Video Conference programs. I understand that this is for your safety reasons, but I must say, school is much harder for me through Zoom! I require some hands-on learning, you know? Really, I must say that much of this comes from the fact that I have a hard time concentrating in general, and without the accountability of being in-person… oof, it is all over for me! That’s why I think that the Economy Desk Top Divider (link here: https://www.sneezeguardsolutions.com/economy-desk-top-dividers/)  is essential for all educational facilities (and could be my lifesaver).

The Economy Desk Top Divider can help educational institutions stay open or be able to reintegrate in-person learning! It is a freestanding divider that is perfect for school-sized desks or tables, and it has three barricaded sides. This is ideal for learning environments as it provides optimal protection and still allows for in-person learning, which is crucial to many students’ education.

According to a study done by the Dana Foundation, one of the reasons why in-person learning seems to be more effective than online learning is because of the amount of engagement involved in a traditional learning environment. This does not just happen to be a result of the human engagement in traditional school spaces, but when a student is to obtain information from a paper textbook and other tactile learning materials, the information is better absorbed. Though online education is great in many ways, it still has its downfalls.

empty school

That being said, during these times, the Economy Desk Top Divider (link here: https://www.sneezeguardsolutions.com/economy-desk-top-dividers/) is truly a resource we cannot let go to waste. It is time for us to push forward in our educational endeavors throughout this pandemic, and let us all be safe by having our schools invest in health-saving dividers. Together, we can keep educating our children and ourselves in a safe and in-person environment.

Creating Barriers with Guards to Protect Employees & Customers

These days it seems as if Plexiglas shield guards are showing up just about any place business is conducted from grocery stores to dry cleaners to pharmacies to restaurant pick-up windows. Although the sudden rise in these barriers is clearly due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, however, I hope businesses continue to implement them in their workplaces long after COVID-19 has settled down. There are many other germs floating around that can make employees ill and it is just good practice to continue using and installing these shields to protect workers and customers.

DIVIDERS

OSHA recommends that employers develop and implement an infectious disease preparedness and response plan that considers the level(s) of risk associated with worksites and job tasks performed by workers. A part of this plan includes considering where and how they may be exposed to the virus. Sources to consider are the public, customers, and co-workers. Occupational safety and health professionals outlined ways of controlling workplace hazards to reduce exposure. One of the suggested engineering controls is installing physical barriers, such as clear plastic sneezugards.

Coughs, Sneezes, & the Rapid Spread of COVID-19 & Other Diseases

SNEEZEGUARDS AREN'T JUST FOR BUFFETS COVER

Long before COVID-19 scientists and medical professionals have known that sneezes and coughs send germs and bacteria into the air to infect an innocent bystander. According to the Centers for Disease Control, viruses such as the flu and COVID-19 spread via droplets made when people infected with the virus cough, sneeze or talk. Generally speaking people within six feet are most likely to be susceptible to becoming infected by the droplets emitted from the sneeze and cough. However, researchers believe the distance could be further than six feet.

In 2016, Lydia Bourouiba, a researcher from MIT, conducted a study of “violent respiratory events such as coughs and sneezes” and the role they play in transferring respiratory diseases between those infected to a susceptible individual.

Another research study conducted by the University of Bristol found that a sneeze can spew droplets at speeds of up to 100 mph! The study also revealed that an average sneeze or cough sends around 100,000 contagious germs into the air. This is why experts and medical professionals are concerned about the rapid spread of COVID-19.

In addition to masks and regular hand washing, sneeze guards help keep people safe from the spread of germs through sneezes and coughs.
