We have been working hard over the last 6 weeks to ensure the Hive is safe to re-open and we are now in a position to take bookings again.
You may wonder what we have been doing to make the space safe? Well, in addition to comprehensive Risk Assessments for the various activities that take place in the Hive, we have also introduced the following measures to help limit the risks of coronavirus transmission in the Hive.
- Display public health messages throughout the premises
- Require that those using the building wear a face covering
- Limited the number of people in particular spaces, at any given time
- Made hand sanitiser available throughout the building
- Introduced a one-way system to reduce people passing one another in small spaces
- Floor markings to help people maintain physical distancing (in the main hall and at reception)
- More regular cleaning, with particular care given to touchpoints and communal spaces
- Introduced a Track and Trace procedure for those in the building for longer than 10 mins
- Developed new Conditions of Hire for those hiring the space – available to download below.
If you have any questions regarding our procedures please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07563 405939.
