Ricoh announced its ‘Return to Work Security Services’ to assist companies return to physical workplaces under safety and security measures. The service combines consulting, technology and services to locate possible obstacles and relocate the work environment onsite. It assists organizations with technologies and services to utilize for a holistic approach of underlining their COVID-19 policies, processes and business goals during the pandemic. Ricoh continued that the service eases the process of returning to in-person work by helping organizations to choose the technology and services they demand through swift adaptions. More than workers, the service also enable safer and smarter experience for customers by using following:
- Kiosk-based access screening at employee, visitor, warehouse and plant entrances to facilitate company policies such as wellness screens, automated temperature checks, mask compliance and hand sanitizing – minimizing the need for human contact.
- Personnel density and physical distancing analysis and planning tools to reserve and modify the availability of reservable spaces, such as socially distanced desks, common rooms, warehouse spaces or occupancy-limited meeting rooms to accommodate social distancing protocols based on state and local mandates and compliance requirements determined by the customer.
- Access to analysis and materials that customers may incorporate into their own customized training, adoption and improvement programs and practices to reduce the risk of non-compliance, and access to past visitor logs for quick assessments, all allowing for proactive management of return-to-work challenges.
