COVID-19 has indirectly affected all businesses across the globe, let alone within the UK. First with the ‘stay at home’ orders, and then the implementation of social distancing measures. Having to wear face masks everywhere we go is evidence of the ongoing and fluctuating change we face at home and work. Social distancing machines are likely to be the future of manufacturing.
Changes in manufacturing
Many operations and facilities managers have been tasked with the role of assessing their internal processes. Mainly reducing employee contact and adjusting to these ever-changing guidelines. Social distancing is definitely here to stay, but how on earth do you maintain a 1m distance in a factory full of 20-30 people? With designated work areas for specific jobs, this just isn’t practical within a busy warehouse environment. That is where social distancing solutions could be the answer you are looking for.
Negative impact on the food industry
In the news recently we have seen that food factories, in particular, have been really affected by COVID-19. With lots of people within close proximity, the spread of COVID has been uncontrollable with over 100 people testing positive in one Welsh factory.
Something else that is affecting the food industry is the lack of international workers. Picking crops is therefore taking much longer, and slowing down food production. Add social distancing to the mix and this is making things even harder.
