Returning to Work at CIP After Lockdown

We’ve recently invited each of our clients at Blenheim and Stirling House to join online discussions entitled “Returning to the Workplace”. At the events we shared a slide deck, detailing the approach we have taken in to review our workspace in line with government guidance on COVID19 risk management in offices. 

Using the available government guidance,  CIP Limited have undertaken an employer risk assessment in relation to our own staff and their use of the workplace. We have carefully considered the common areas of the building and how they can support your employer risk assessments. Additional sanitising stations, sprays and paper towels have been added at regular points throughout the common areas such as toilets, kitchens and entrance and exit points. Toilets and kitchens have also been changed to single user with suitable signage including vacant/occupied signs at the toilets. We have also reviewed our cleaning routines and changed the times of these to best provide a hygienic environment.

We have carefully reviewed our building operating and evacuation arrangements. To support social distancing a one way route has been arranged for the building which will commence once occupancy begins to increase beyond levels. You can find drawings demonstrating this here. These changes commence as you arrive at the building and you will see stickers on the floor from the entrance bridge and throughout the building. Some variation to assembly point locations will be required to manage social distancing and we ask you to liaise with the Centre Manager once you have reviewed your plans.

At the online sessions our clients highlighted their plans for return to work which on the whole commenced with part-occupancy arrangements from June/July but varied by business thereafter. 

The CIP team welcome continuous feedback from all our valued clients and we will continue to engage through online events, email and other channels as appropriate.

Additionally,  please feel free to contact any of the team if you have any questions.
