How Trim Street Bath is providing COVID-safe workspaces

Trim Street Bath offers modern workspaces in a serviced office setting. We have committed to rigorous health and safety measures to ensure the protection and wellbeing of each and every one of our serviced office occupants and meeting room attendees.

COVID-secure measures for our serviced offices at Trim Street Bath

1. Social distancing measures

Where it is possible to do so, we have implemented procedures to allow our occupants and visitors to maintain social distancing throughout the property and follow public health guidance for safe working during the COVID-19 pandemic. These include:

  • Floor markings and signage to enforce a one-way circulation system around the building
  • Regulated entry into the reception area at peak times to prevent overcrowding
  • Implementation of a queuing system to maintain two-metre social distancing
  • Limits to concurrent use of facilities, such as numbers in toilets or at tea points at one time
  • Meeting rooms are available for use, with each room’s capacity now halved.

2. Visitors to Trim Street Bath

Where possible, we ask that businesses hold virtual or remote meetings to avoid unnecessary travel and building access.

All visitors are required to report to reception upon arrival.

3. Workplace hygiene at Trim Street Bath

  • Enhanced daily cleaning routine

The daily cleaning regime at Trim Street Bath maintains advanced cleaning and disinfection standards across the common areas of the building.

  • The focus is on high density areas and frequently touched surfaces, such as:
    • Door handles, push buttons and push plates
    • Staircase handrails
    • Kitchen and appliances – clients are asked to place all crockery and cutlery in the dishwasher. If the dishwasher is full, please wash all utensils by hand
    • Common washrooms
    • Showers – please spray the shower with disinfectant before and after use and do not leave any personal items such as towels in the shower room.
  • Frequent touch point awareness

Signage is on display in communal and circulation areas to promote safety by emphasising necessary infection prevention measures. We ask that all occupants of our serviced offices avoid touching surfaces unless absolutely necessary.

Where possible, doors are propped open to reduce the need to touch door handles or access control buttons.

  • Good hygiene practices

Sanitiser stations are positioned in the reception, while wall-mounted hand sanitising units are available at the tea point and lower ground floor entrance to the Business Lounge, Snug and Boardroom meeting room. All staff and visitors should wash their hands regularly and use the hand sanitiser provided as they enter the building.

Anti-bacterial wipes are also available at the tea points and should be used to wipe down any appliances before and after use.

4. Trim Street Bath reception services

The team at Trim Street Bath continue to be on hand to offer client services. A Perspex protective screen is in use at the front desk for the protection of our team as well as our occupants and visitors.

Reception, kitchen and lounge furniture has been re-arranged or removed to promote social distancing and pieces still in place in these communal areas are cleaned regularly to comply with government advice and recommended cleaning procedures.

5. Mail forwarding at Trim Street Bath

Our staff are equipped with suitable personal protective equipment (PPE) to receive, sort and deliver your post and follow safe systems of working. They are required to wash their hands thoroughly for 20 seconds after handling any incoming or outgoing mail items.

We request that only business-critical deliveries are arranged, and that you advise reception of any specific deliveries in advance.

6. Cycle facilities and storage

We encourage travelling to and from work on foot or by bicycle to minimise the use of public transport. Our cycle racks are located in the storage area down the stairs to the basement. Additional storage facilities are constantly being reviewed in line with usage.

7. Request for staff to work in staggered shifts

Where it is not possible to have your staff working from home, we welcome a conversation around the possibility of staggered shift times to enable staff to continue to operate and circulate safely within the building. We remain in touch with all individual businesses to discuss the viability of this and to offer ways that we can help.

8. Building access and one-way systems

A one-way circulation route has been devised to encourage social distancing. Please keep to the left when using the stairs and in corridors and use the main stairs to go up to the second and third floors and the rear stairs to descend to the first floor.

The main entrance will remain accessible for entering into, and departing out of, the building.

9. Personal protective equipment (PPE)

Our team and engineers have been provided with the necessary PPE to ensure duties at the site can be undertaken in a safe and healthy manner.

10. Discovery of possible COVID -19 symptoms on-site

If anyone becomes unwell with a new, continuous, cough, a high temperature or loss of, or change to, their sense of taste or smell, they should be sent home quickly and directly, and follow the stay at home guidance for individuals with a possible coronavirus (COVID-19) infection. Please inform the reception team immediately if there are any cases of individuals with suspected symptoms within your team.
