Safe Work Australia Advice: Do I need to install screens in the workplace?
Acrylic screens (also known as sneeze guards) can be considered at workplaces where workers are in close proximity to each other for long periods. For example, an acrylic screen could be considered where two workers work side by side or back to back for a shift.
The current Australian Government advice is that it is not necessary to install a screen between workers and the public (customers) as the interaction time between them is shorter. However, many businesses have chosen to protect workers by installing these screens including retail stores, pharmacies and doctor’s surgeries.
Acrylic screens come in many different sizes and shapes and can be custom made for the workplace. Generally, they have a space cut out to allow for exchange between the worker and a member of the public or a patient, with the screen covering the upper half of the body and head.
If you choose to install an acrylic screen you need to ensure that the screen is fit for purpose and protects workers from droplet spray. Completing a risk assessment will assist you in deciding what type of screen is best for your workplace. The screen must allow the worker to safely work and protect their face from exposure to droplet spray. Be aware that installing an acrylic screen may result in other WHS risks that you will need to consider.
You must consult with workers about installing acrylic screens and must provide appropriate training and instruction to workers who will use them, if you decide to install them.
Acrylic screens should be cleaned in the same manner as other frequently handled objects or surfaces.
