A Safe and Successful Post COVID-19 Workplace


“As lockdowns are relaxed around the world and people return to their workplaces, the next challenge will be adapting open office spaces to the new normal of strict personal hygiene and physical distancing.” *


Let Sterling help you create a new workplace that maintains social distancing and follows the new federal, state and local guidelines. One that makes the best use of your existing materials and cost-effectively incorporates new protective equipment so you can safely start returning to everyday, in-office work.

We have implemented a number of safety measures in response to COVID-19. This short YouTube video will give you more information on these procedures.
