We find ourselves in uncharted territory at the moment, and the current generation and the generation proceeding it, have never had to go through life like this before. We are constantly living in fear of the Covid virus and it is playing havoc with the things that we normally do on a day-to-day basis. It is affecting how staff interacts with customers and customers with staff. Going shopping for the day should be an enjoyable experience and not one where you just want to get into the store and get out again as quickly as possible. As a business owner, you really need to pull out all of the stops to make your place of business somewhere for customers who would like to come to, and spend more time there. One way that you can provide both your staff and your customers with essential peace of mind is to provide them with face masks.
Sourcing quality bulk face masks can be quite difficult, but there are professional companies out there that can provide you with larger orders with a quick turnaround time. There are various kinds and colours to choose from and once your order arrives, then your business can start to enjoy the benefits that come from wearing face masks.
- They offer protection – Providing your staff with face masks is for their protection, but also for the protection of anyone else that they are dealing with. This means that when a customer enters your store, they know immediately that you are taking the situation very seriously indeed, and that you are taking steps to protect them as customers.
- They help to reduce spray – If a person does have the Covid virus, then it is very likely that they are going to transfer it by respiratory droplets when they cough, sneeze or talk. Wearing a face mask will help to prevent these problems from reaching other people in their vicinity. Once the mask is worn over the nose and mouth, it prevents a level of protection that you wouldn’t otherwise have.
In many interactions with customers, it is very difficult for staff to stay at least 2 m apart from the customer in their attempts to help them. It can be quite difficult for the customer to understand what the staff member is saying from that distance, and so a mask can help to bring them a little closer together without putting anyone’s health in danger.
