Adapting to the new normal: practicalities of the socially distanced lab with Tom Wickstead from Aport

About this event

In the process of fighting the 2020 coronavirus, laboratories, like many other sectors have been forced to adapt to new ways of working. With many lab professionals unable to work from home, social distancing requirements in the lab are a key challenge, and changes to the layout and workflow of a laboratory will be required to keep staff members safe.

Tom Wickstead, commercial director of international laboratory relocation specialist, Aport, shares advice on how to make practical and effective changes and reminds us of important aspects to bear in mind before moving furniture or equipment on-site.

Tom will cover: 

  • new layouts and arrangements to keep staff safe
  • key areas you can make changes to aid social distancing
  • points to consider for workflow and space planning 
  • considerations before making any physical changes to locations of laboratory equipment, instruments or samples 
  • avoiding potential hold-ups or risks
