Soho Works

Last updated 12th January 2022

A core value of Soho Works is to provide a safe environment for all and to put our members at the heart of everything we do whilst maintaining community, creativity and passion.

This page sets out the measures we propose to take in order to keep our members and team safe in a post-lockdown society, we want to do everything we can to minimise the risk of COVID-19. These measures are based on current leading scientific advice. They are not fixed – as the advice and requirements change – so we will respond and be flexible in our approach.

 

Lounge capacity:
We will be running Soho Works with limited capacity to avoid breaking social-distancing guidelines. Reception will allocate you an available lounge seat. Every seat in the workspace will be marked as ‘available’ or ‘unavailable’. Meeting rooms have been opened up to ensure there is enough space.

 

Dedicated desk:
Your membership manager will be in touch and assign a desk that adheres to the two-metre / six-feet guidelines.

 

Cleaning policy:
There will be an increased cleaning regime, including a full deep clean before Soho Works reopens, more frequent deep cleanings throughout the week and then consistent hourly cleaning checks by staff.

 

Clean desk policy:
We ask members to keep a clean desk policy to help assist with our increased cleaning regime. This means that only your computer, phone and keyboard can be left out.

 

Moving around Works:

We will be implementing one-way systems where possible, and give-way signs will be in place through narrow walkways.

Signage will be in place throughout the site indicating best health and safety practice.

Frequently used doors around the workspace will be propped open to avoid the same surface being touched regularly and to help with ventilation.

 

PPE:

Soho Works has invested hygiene consumables at each building.

These include:

    • Anti-bacterial wipes
    • Disposable face masks 
    • Disposable gloves 
    • Antibacterial hand Sanitiser 
    • Tissues

All members will be required to wear a mask/face covering while at Works. Hand sanitiser will be available throughout the space for members to use. Members are encouraged to wash their hands when entering Soho Works.
