Request for Perspex/Barrier Screens

The guidance on Barrier Screens is addressed in the Access to Campus Protocol document, Appendix 4, Para 8.a., Page. 26; which states:

Units with student / customer/ public facing desk functions with a high throughput should consider re-engineering the role to provide the service without a face to face requirement. Where this is not possible, Units should consider the use of Barrier Screens (Clear Plastic / Perspex or equivalent) between the staff member and student / customer / public. Where this also proves impractical, face screens may be considered to reduce the risk further.’

Screens are not intended for teaching scenarios unless a particular activity requires them. They should only be considered where a face to face service is absolutely required.
