Are sanitisation stations measures at events just “hygiene theatre” or are they as necessary as ever?
With many now suggesting that surface transmission of Covid 19 is unlikely, it prompts the question: Why do venues still need to invest in sanitation measures — much less event planners?
Big Fish Events knows why.
Evidence has shown that a person may still be infected if they touch a surface contaminated with the COVID-19 virus and then touch their mouth, nose or eyes before washing their hands. Additionally, research shows that the COVID-19 virus can survive on some surfaces for prolonged periods of time.
So, to enhance good hygiene outcomes at events, event planners do need to ensure they continue to stay on top of and develop infection control policies. These policies should outline what measures are in place to prevent the spread of infectious diseases such as Covid 19.
Big Fish Events have created our Covid STEP BACK program outlining a set of protocols and processes to ensure the safety of its employees, contractors and customers are at the forefront of our event design process.
Big Fish Events can also design a Covid Safe Policy based on your specific requirements for your event as part of our pre-event planning. This will include your formal mapping of the site, zone set ups and locations for density requirements.
I don’t know about you, but I think that some of the new hygiene measures in place makes for a healthier workplace….its one of the good things that’s come out of the hardship of the last 18 months. Let’s keep it here to stay and use it as a positive as we start to live with Covid-19 here in Australia.
