GENESEO, N.Y. -- Coast Professional, Inc. (Coast) has invested approximately $300,000 in glass partitions and other safety measures for its four office locations and has begun installation of the partitions in its Geneseo, NY office. Coast recently began bringing employees back to the office following state-specific guidance. In a conscious effort to protect the health and safety of all staff members, the decision was made to add glass partitions around cubicles and in offices where social distancing is not possible.
The glass partition investment and newly implemented safety measures, such as enhanced social distancing policies, mask requirements, and daily health assessments, are a necessary step to keep employees safe. The 24-inch-tall partitions will act as an additional protection barrier between employees and will be sanitized on a daily basis. Coast has also invested in extensive safety measures including additional daily cleanings of the offices, approximately 100 hand-sanitizing stations across all office locations, and the purchasing of additional CDC recommended cleaning supplies. In addition to these safety measures, Coast purchased sanitation foggers, which are used to effectively disinfect and sanitize large areas. The foggers are used at the end of each business day.
According to Jonathan Prince, Chief Operating Officer, the decision to add the partitions was a unanimous one for the Board of Directors.
“The health of our employees is of the utmost importance to us and is something we don’t take lightly,” he said. “In order to begin the process of bringing employees back into our offices, we must do our part to make our office a safe, comfortable, and controlled environment. The glass partitions and added safety measures were investments we deemed absolutely essential in order to maintain the well-being of our team.”
