With COVID-19 causing worldwide concern, many organizations have adopted a more flexible attitude toward work and are allowing employees to telecommute from home. Along with helping promote safe social distancing, the transition remains vital to flattening the curve. However, it has corporations questioning how to balance the new “norm” and maintain efficient productivity. Well, leading storage experts have the answer. Using flexible emergency response workstations can help hospitals and offices in preparing for the COVID-19 work setting. No one knows how long the pandemic will last, but companies must have the capacity to function now and later. The future health of our nation’s economy depends on it. Therefore, this article will discuss:

How can emergency response workstations help you remain productive at a safe social distance?

Creating conditions to suit your hospital or office workflow needs and maintaining safe social distance is easy since the systems have 850-lb ball bearing casters included in the design. Adapted to wheels, the stand-alone furniture has the mobile flexibility to accommodate the six-feet separation rule. Simply abut, turn, or place units however you desire to provide the most comfortable degree of separation. Alternatively, you can easily and quickly reposition the solutions to allow healthy and productive interaction between colleagues sitting a safe social distance apart. Considering how much government officials stress proper practice, it’s only natural that businesses would need a solution to enforce it. Why not use emergency response workstations? Unlike traditional alternatives, units are easier to clean behind. They also have the necessary versatility, making them better suited to help you adjust to the new normal and maintain efficient operations when preparing for the COVID-19 work setting.

How much time does it take to install and relocate this workstation on wheels for hospitals?

Internal personnel can install and relocate this versatile workstation on wheels for hospitals in minutes since it doesn’t require tools and comes assembled. Since existing staff can set up the systems, facilities avoid paying outside service crews to handle the job.  Along with helping to ensure affordability, it keeps staff numbers down. So, fewer people risk potential exposure to the virus and hospitals can remain focused on preparing for the COVID-19 work setting.

How will the workstations impact real estate?

So how much can you expect to spend when preparing for the COVID-19 work environment? It depends on what emergency response workstations you choose to use in your hospital or office space. The impact the systems have on real estate will also depend on several factors, including:

  • If you plan to re-carpet, paint, and expand
  • Will you need to reposition units to accommodate collaboration?
  • Do you expect to grow over the years?
  • Does your company prefer in-house personnel to handle the installation or use an outside contractor?

Use this example as a guide to help determine how much of a return on investment you can expect:

To start, these emergency response workstations can run you $24,000 plus freight. That’s far more than the initial $14,000 for traditional alternatives. However, that changes once factoring in things like employee churn time, real estate, and resale value. While taking these figures into account over a 60 month period, you could save 11.8% or more depending on the figures.
