Why do you need lockers in the office?

Posted on April 11th 2022 by Paul Ellis - Digital Marketing Executive.

lockers in the office header
lockers in the office image

Why do you need
lockers in the office?

Lockers can help give staff a safe and secure space for their belongings and improve the working environment. Instead of allowing staff to fill desk drawers with personal items, belongings should be stored away in a secure locker.

Does your office offer locker facilities to employees? If not maybe now is the time to make the change?


Here are just 4 reasons why
lockers are a must for your office:


security

SECURITY

One of the main benefits of lockers in the office is the security of your employee’s personal belongings. If the office is a busy environment with customers or easily accessible by the public, it’s a good idea to store away items such as mobile phones, keys and wallets.

space

SPACE

If you are limited with office space, lockers can be an excellent way of freeing up additional storage space. If employees have their own lockers this may reduce the need to have larger desks. Lockers will then take up more wall space with staff using these for personal belongings, allowing you more desk or office furniture space.

desk sharing

DESK SHARING

It is becoming more popular in the workplace for
‘hot-desking’. This is where an employee does not have their own desk, a free desk can be used by anyone. This is great for employees who want to come in and sit at a desk with a laptop or work on a part time basis. They can simply retrieve their belongings from the locker and they are good to go. This results in a tidier, clutter-free office as employees will not leave items out on a desk as this may be used by someone else the next day.

personalisation

BRANDING & PERSONALISATION

It is very easy and inexpensive to customise colours and materials on locker doors. This is a very simple way to reflect the company branding and really improve the office environment. Lockers can be customised internally to give employees the opportunity to personalise their locker. Clutter-free desks can really improve the atmosphere in the room. Employees can have complete concentration, which can help to increase the quality of work.


How can QMPs Lockers improve your office?

QMP manufactures a wide range of lockers that are ideal for office environments. QMP really does have the perfect solution to suit your needs and help make the workplace a healthier and more productive environment.

Benefits of an Adjustable Height Workbench

Posted on April 5th 2022 by Paul Ellis - Digital Marketing Executive.

benefits of an adjustable height workbench banner
operating a height-adjustable workbench

Is it time to make a stand in the workplace?!

It is generally well-known that sitting at work for 8 hours a day can be bad for your health. So as today is World Health Day we take a look at the benefits of an adjustable height workbench in the workplace.

Sitting and working at a desk for prolonged periods of time can have a detrimental impact on your health, including the risk of diabetes, heart disease, back problems and obesity.

One great solution to this health problem is standing at a desk…..

Why adjustable height workbenches are the perfect choice for your workplace

Height adjustable workbenches offer great versatility to the user allowing them to manually or electronically adjust the height of the bench. This allows them to complete work tasks either sitting or standing as needed.

Standing benches are becoming increasingly popular in the workplace because they offer many health and productivity benefits. Adjustable workbenches do cost more than a traditional fixed bench but can offer considerable long-term health benefits to your staff.

Here are QMP’s top 5 benefits of a height adjustable workbench.


reduces back pain image

Reduces Back Pain

Warehouses are generally very large spaces that are in frequent use so it’s highly likely that they will get untidy and dirty quickly. It’s vital to keep the space clean to ensure staff are safe and operations remain productive. Create cleaning schedules and plan what must be cleaned, ensure this is a process that must be adhered to. It should be a requirement to clean an area before work can be safely and effectively carried out.

improve energy levels and mood image

Improve Energy Levels and Mood

The best way to include everyone in the team is to assign staff to a specific area of the warehouse to clean. Assign a worker to a zone they work in often so that they are more familiar with their surroundings. They can then confidently clean this specific area diligently without making a mess before leaving. Ensuring this is done regularly will help with workload and make the area cleaner and easier to use for colleagues.

increase productivity image

Increase productivity

If you want your employees to keep the warehouse space clean and safe you need to provide the right equipment and storage facilities. Make sure the equipment is stored conveniently so that employees don’t have to search for cleaning materials.

reduce risk of weight gain image

Reduce risk of weight gain

It’s very important to encourage your employees to act responsibly and recycle or reuse items in the warehouse where possible. Ensure recycle bins are placed in the workplace so that employees are disposing of waste in the right place. This will make sure that supplies that are being used in the operation can be reused instead of being replaced, reducing costs and making your operation more sustainable as a result.

reduce risk of heart disease image

Reduce risk of heart disease

It may be time for a good spring clean of your warehouse! Remove and relocate obsolete goods or outdated products to avoid cluttering up the workplace. Stock that has been stored for a while is not only costly for your business to hold but also starts to accumulate dust that can lead to hazardous complications.


How can QMP support the health and productivity of your workforce?
