Introducing Safe Spaces™

We are proud to join Colliers and Upflex as an initial member of Safe Spaces™, a program designed to enhance workspace standards post COVID-19. The goal is to ensure members and employees feel safe so businesses can come back stronger than ever! Here’s how it will work:

Social Distancing

  • Implement social distancing measures and prevent unnecessary close contact to help prevent the spread of infection
  • Increase physical space between members, keeping at least 2 meters (~6 feet) between people

Cleaning & disinfecting

  • Cleaning does not kill germs, but cleaning removes and lowers the risk of spreading infection.
  • Disinfectants kill germs on clean surfaces. We have reviewed the list of approved disinfectants by the EPA and have ensured cleaning staff are aware of the correct products.
  • Open outside windows and doors (to the extent possible) to increase air circulation
  • Thoroughly clean and disinfect all surfaces at least twice a day:
    • Doorknobs and door push plates handrails and buttons on elevators
    • Desks and chairs and all tables
    • Bathroom faucet handles, paper towel dispenser handles, toilet flush handles, and hand dryer buttons
    • Kitchen faucets, refrigerator handles, coffee pot handles and buttons, and microwave and toaster buttons Light switches
    • Handles and buttons on all equipment (e.g., printers, audiovisual equipment, telephone, monitors, etc.)

Personal hygiene

  • Provide members:
    • Paper Towels
    • Tissues
    • Alcohol-based hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol)
    • Disinfectant wipes
    • Hand soap at all sinks
  • Install additional hand sanitizing stations in high traffic areas throughout the workspace
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Post signs educating members about proper hand-washing techniques:
    • Washing hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds is effective and should be done frequently and always upon the following:
      • Before eating;
      • After sneezing, coughing, or nose blowing;
      • After using the restroom
      • Before handling food;
      • After using shared equipment such as computer keyboards, etc.
      • Provide safety and hygiene training for all employees

Food & beverage

  • Offer paper cups for coffee, tea, and water
  • Provide pre-wrapped food items only (if offering any food)

Incident reporting

  • If a confirmed case of COVID-19 was present in your workspace, or individuals in your workspace have been exposed to a confirmed case, notify Nomadworks immediately and perform a full cleaning and disinfection of the workspace
