Ricoh USA, Inc. has launched RICOH Return to Work Security Services to help organizations get back to physical workspaces with proper safety and security measures in place. Return to Work Security Services combine consulting, technology, and services to address potential obstacles and adjust to the “new normal” associated with returning to onsite work environments. It empowers organizations with technologies and services to use as part of a holistic approach of addressing their specific COVID-19 policies, processes and business objectives in the face of the pandemic and beyond for longer-term business continuity planning.
Return to Work Security Services simplifies the complexities associated with returning to in-person work by empowering organizations to select the technologies and services they need with the agility to adapt to their unique environment as part of their individual plans to return to a physical workspace.
Return to Work Security Services can become part of a smarter and safer employee or visitor experience from entrance to exit, allowing customers to utilize:
- Kiosk-based access screening at employee, visitor, warehouse and plant entrances to facilitate company policies such as wellness screens, automated temperature checks, mask compliance, and hand sanitizing – minimizing the need for human contact.
- Personnel density and physical distancing analysis and planning tools to reserve and modify the availability of reservable spaces, such as socially distanced desks, common rooms, warehouse spaces or occupancy-limited meeting rooms to accommodate social distancing protocols based on state and local mandates and compliance requirements determined by the customer.
- Access to analysis and materials that customers may incorporate into their own customized training, adoption, and improvement programs and practices to reduce the risk of non-compliance, and access to past visitor logs for quick assessments, all allowing for proactive management of return-to-work challenges.
“As businesses return to the workplace, employers’ top concern is how to bring their staff back safely and address their obligations under various state and other mandates. This is a critical responsibility, now and post-pandemic, and will transform how we work and collaborate in face-to-face environments to help keep everyone at work safe long-term,” said Steven Burger, Vice President, Technology Innovation & New Business Development, Ricoh USA, Inc. “Business continuity measures such as taking preventative screening and distancing measures will remain paramount for the foreseeable future. Return to Work Security Services takes a common-sense, comprehensive approach to addressing the changes necessary for returning to the physical workplace so organizations can focus on recovery, growth and the future.”
