Sato has adapted its label production process to include the manufacture of a new range of personalized social distancing labels enabling customers to implement safe practices once they return to work.

Businesses and industries across Europe are being challenged to manage their employee and customer health and safety in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, particularly as they begin to reopen. Sato has adapted its production operations to help its customers to adhere to government guidelines on social distancing.

‘Many sectors across Europe are now facing an incredibly difficult challenge as they begin to prepare their businesses for staff returning to work, and customers who will return to public spaces,’ said Laurent Lassus, managing director for Europe at Sato. ‘Universally, it is recommended that social distancing is maintained and to continually disinfect all surfaces to avoid the spread of the virus. We are therefore now offering a range of disinfectant wipes and personalized social distancing labels so everyone can quickly adhere to health and safety guidelines.’

The company is also offering a range of disinfectant wipes to help support brand efforts once working life emerges into the ‘new norm’. The disinfectant cleaning wipes are an alcohol-free, quick disinfection option for objects and surfaces. Virucidal, used as the disinfectant protects against enveloped viruses such as HIV / HBC / HCV, rotavirus, BVDV, vaccinia, influenza and corona. Alongside this product, the company’s new range of labels can be personalized and applied to both windows and floors to enhance the visibility of social distancing regulations once stores, offices and factories re-open.

‘We have significant experience of adapting to emerging issues across a range of sectors and want to assure our customers that we are doing everything we can to provide solutions that support staff in this difficult work environment,’ concluded Lassus.
