Q.How can I minimize physical contact between customers at my convenience store, especially in aisles and passages?
Posting social distancing signs in stores that ask customers to maintain a distance of 6 feet among themselves in aisles and passages is the best thing you can do to avoid physical contact.
Though not specifically for aisles and passages, OSHA recommends to, “Provide a waiting area for customers that is separated by at least 6 feet from a cash register workstation. Signage that instructs individuals waiting in line to remain 6 feet back from work areas may bolster the effectiveness of this engineering control.”
Social distancing floor signs like ConeBoss Signs, BigBoss A-Frame Sidewalk Signs, SlipSafe Adhesive Floor Signs are a discreet way to convey your message without having to intervene personally.
Create one-way aisles by using arrow markers, footprint signs, and floor tapes, and also restrict the number of customers allowed inside the facility at any point in time to facilitate crowd and movement control
Q.Which sign is more suitable to inform my customers about wearing a mask, a glass window decal or a BigBoss A-Frame sign on the door?
If your purpose is to move the sign from one place to another, consider using our portable Bigboss A-Frame signs that come with built-in wheels for easy portability. The wheels engage when the sign is tilted.
Our Sidewalk Signs are much larger, measuring 42” H x 29” W with two 24” x 36” sign panels to be read from afar. Our glass window decals are smaller and can be read when the customers approach near the store. That said, these die-cut decals look upscale and very professional in stores with glass entrances.
Q.I want to alert my visitors to maintain 6 feet distance, what is the best signage option?
Our Social Distancing Signs would be the best bet. These wall and door signs effectively remind customers, workers, and visitors to maintain 6-feet distance at all times. Floor signage like message floor tapes, adhesive floor signs, footprint shape floor markers, and floor standing signs are also a great option to encourage social distancing. When people read messages like “Please Stand Here”, “Before Entering, Maintain 6 Feet Distance”, etc they’re reminded to take a step back from the person in front of them and stay on top of any floor tape or other markers you may have put down to show them where to stand six feet apart. ConeBoss Signs that fit on a regular safety or traffic cone and BigBoss sidewalk signs are portable options which can be placed wherever the customers will notice them the most. Social Distancing stickers and decals can be applied on glass doors, windows, walls, shelves, racks, equipment, etc.
Q.Which color or type of floor marking tape should we use at our store to mark no access zones?
According to OSHA standard §1910.144(a)(3) , yellow shall be the basic color for designating caution and marking physical hazards. Yellow is also recommended for marking off aisles and pathways within a facility. Apart from yellow, you can also use our yellow and black striped floor tape to mark a no access zone in your facility.
Q.Are sneeze guards and barrier shields helpful tools in protecting against Covid-19?
Sneeze shields are being installed at many service counters, cashier stations, quick stop fuel center checkouts in stores, banks, post offices, and other places across the country. These clear barriers are an added precaution against Coronavirus. The plexiglass divider shields are helpful in protecting the health and well being of employees and provide a safe, secure, and comfortable shopping space to the valued customers.
According to an article in the Industrial Safety and Hygiene News, “sneeze guards are not medical devices, but they have PPE qualities contributing to transmission slowdown — even if a customer and employees aren’t wearing masks.” The article also states that “sneeze barriers work best when they are used alongside other proven methods including enhanced cleaning and hygiene practices, PPE, social distancing measures, and drastic changes in how services are provided, especially in the hard-hit retail and hospitality industries.
Q.How can footprint signs help at my store?
Footprint signs in the shape of footsteps are a good option for leading people in the direction you want them to go in your store. These are the best tools to use for distancing customers six feet apart by indicating where to safely stand.
We have footprint signs with messages like “6 Feet Apart”, “Single File”, “Stay Back”, “Stand Here”, “Stay Safe”, “Stop Here”, “You Are Next”, and more. All of these messages help you maintain social distancing in the store and ensure safety in Covid times. Durable footprint markers come in reflective, glow-in-the-dark options too. Opt for solid or striped footprints to suit your requirements.
Q.How can we ensure our customers are practising good hand hygiene before entering the store?
You can create temporary sanitizer stations or deploy a person at the entrance who would ensure customers don’t enter the premises with unsanitized hands. These stations must be identified with proper signs so that they are hard to miss. Polite reminders like " Please Keep Your Hands Clean/Sanitized ","Use Alcohol-Based Hand Sanitizers", or "Do Not Touch" should also be posted in and out of the store to minimize chances of contamination.
Q.How can we declare our customers we are back in business?
It is important for the public to know whether your store is functional or not in this pandemic. If you have a database of your customers’ contact details, reach out to them through social media, direct messaging or a digital advertisement. In addition to this, make sure you have distinct and large signs saying “We’re Open” or “We’re Back” . A-frame sidewalk signs are a great option to put out your message for people passing by. You can also visit our entire Open for Business Signs collection for further options. Easily customize a sign with your store’s name or logo and even add new temporary business hours.
Q.How can we create One-Way Aisles in our store?
One-way aisles can be created by installing signs that direct shoppers to move only in one direction when walking in an aisle. Keep people from getting close to each other by telling them that they cannot reverse their course while looking for merchandise. One-way aisles make it impossible for customers to pass each other.
Floor signs are the best way to create one-way aisles in the store. Our floor signs come with permanent acrylic adhesive that bonds well to painted and sealed concrete floor
Q.What are the best places to install social distancing signs in the stores?
Entrances are the best places to install social distancing signs because customers would want to know all the do’s and don’ts of social distancing before entering the store. Signs at the entrance would also let people know that they are safe in your store, and that you are adhering to local regulations.
Next good place are the aisles. Post social distancing signs all along the aisles so consumers keep their distance while shopping.
Social distancing signs should also be installed in payment and checkout lines
