Creating a Covid-19 Secure Workspaces
The risk of COVID-19 transmission significantly increases in indoor settings. Transmission risks at workspaces depend on the factors such as ventilation strategies, workspace layout, occupancy levels etc. It is worth understanding how these factors affect the transmission risks on an ongoing basis, with a potential of an outbreak.
One such outbreak occurred in a single wing of a call centre in Seoul, South Korea. Close prolonged contact between numerous people in an enclosed space significantly affected the rate of virus infection and resulted in 57.6% positive cases.
Twin Dynamics offers services to the workspaces for safer and sustained reopening
Existing office layout
Adjusting office layouts
Evaluate aerosol spread pattern for the existing office layout. The evaluation enables understanding the transmission risks associated with the existing office layout. Recommend adjustments to the layout and compliance with government guidelines.
Developing ventilation strategies
Evaluate aerosol spread pattern for the existing ventilation strategies or HVAC settings. Understand transmission risks associated with the existing strategies. Explore and develop new ventilation strategies to minimise transmission risks on an ongoing basis.
Existing ventilation strategy
Time: 0900 - 1300
Occupancy Level: 58%
Developing occupancy policies
Understanding the impact of occupancy levels on the transmission risks. Schedule occupancy levels to minimise transmission risks on an ongoing basis.
Developing safer work practices
Based on developed ventilation and occupancy strategies, develop healthy work practices on an ongoing basis. For example, demonstrating the importance of wearing a face mask to the occupants.
