Good air in the office - working safely after the lockdown

by Meike Müller

How we are preparing for the time after the lockdown with the help of our individual software

"Proper ventilation of indoor spaces - such as offices and homes - can help reduce the risk of infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus via aerosols." - this is what the Federal Center for Health Education writes on its online presence. The whole of Germany is currently in lockdown, but we have already thought about how things will continue for us on site in our office afterwards.

Even before the lockdown, we were already discussing how we should proceed in the office - should we send all employees to work from home, set up two groups to work alternately in the office or use our large office so that everyone can work at their desks at a distance? Because we love working together on exciting software projects on site, we have taken some measures for ourselves. We decided relatively quickly and unanimously to move our workstations apart, to only move around the office wearing masks and to pay even more attention to disinfecting and washing our hands. But then the lockdown came and even after that, it won't be possible to work normally in the office like before the coronavirus. So we had to come up with something - and we wouldn't be EXWE if we didn't use our custom software to good effect in the company here too.

An investment in the future

As an investment in the safety and future of our employees, in addition to other measures, we have purchased a CO2 measuring device that can measure the air quality, humidity, temperature and noise in the office and connected it to our tracking tool. According to official guidelines, the CO2 value of 1,000 ppm must not be exceeded. This is the upper limit for acceptable indoor air. If the ppm value rises above 1,000 ppm, this is displayed in red in our tracking tool; at values below 700 ppm, the display is in gray and therefore in the optimum range.

In order to maintain good indoor air, we know when we need to ventilate again, which is on average every 20 minutes. An optimal indoor climate should not have a higher CO2 value in the indoor air than in the outdoor air, which is why values between 400 and 800 ppm are considered optimal. Headaches, loss of performance, tiredness and lack of concentration can also be prevented by good indoor air. The use of an air meter therefore makes sense even after the coronavirus restrictions and ensures a good working environment for us and our employees.Grafik Messgerät CO2 Messgerät bei eurer IndividualsoftwareIn our article "Optimum growth supported by individual software", we have already explained how we use our individual software to combine areas such as time recording, CRM, project budgeting and much more in one tool. We were also able to connect the CO2 value to the tool. This is a good example of how individual software can work hand-in-hand with the most diverse requirements of a company and can be expanded as required. Do you have further questions about software or does your company need a strong partner in the field of software development?
