Wed 27th  May 2020. As businesses prepare for the challenge of returning to work in a Covid-19 world, an Irish company is introducing a solution that was conceived in Italy just 7 weeks ago and which has already being ordered for over 3,000 premises in Italy. It has recently been installed in the Milan headquarters of leading fashion house, Versace (pictures available). The product is now being launched in Ireland and internationally.

The product is called Safety Pois.  It is a floor-mounted aid which is based on the traffic-light system of Red, Green and Amber colours to manage the flow of people in any location from an office to a shop to an exhibition centre or stadium.  It was developed and brought to market by a team including architects, graphic designers, interior designers and Health & Safety professionals.  In Ireland the product will be produced locally for use in Irish companies and venues.

The patented system encourages people  to move about in compliance with social distancing protocol by organising where people can move, stop or pause.

  • Green dots identify areas where people are expected to keep walking and not to stop or pause.
  • Amber dots identify areas where people are expected to stop briefly to chat with a colleague in an office, pick up items from a shop shelf or view an exhibit in a gallery.
  • Red dots identify spaces where people are expected to stop“ (e.g.: reception desks, tills or desks).

Speaking today, Marie-Therese Burke who is part of the team bringing Safety Pois to Ireland said that the product has taken off on the basis of word-of-mouth; “the key is simplicity and style.  People intuitively “get” the traffic light coding of Green, Amber and Red and the dots are presented in a stylish, attractive and durable manner which can even incorporate a company’s branding (as has been the case with Versace).  We have to move on from lines of  hazard tape on the floor to a more permanent, professional solution.  Safety Pois is how we do that.”

The team bringing Safety Pois to Ireland includes Marie-Therese Burke, Chris Nolan,  Joe Duffy and John F Burke.  They bring a range of experience in Media and Advertising, Retail Interior Design, Venue Management, Conference and Promotion.
