Kadans wants to keep working in their buildings safe for both tenants and visitors. In order to do so, measures have been taken in the buildings and a set of instructions apply, based on the instruction lined up by the RIVM. The basic instructions are:

  • Feel welcome in our building and act responsibly
  • If you have a sore throat, cough, fever and/or other flu-like symptoms: stay home!
  • Keep at least 1.5 meter distance from others and avoid group formation
  • Follow the instructions and follow the signage
  • Follow the indicated walking routes
  • Use the lift as indicated, take the stairs if possible
  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Keep enough distance and be understanding

You can download a flyer with these instructions here.

Each building also has its own implemented set of measures, based on the structure of the building. These measures have been separately communicated with all tenants and can be found on the signage in the building for visitors.

Kadans has implemented signing to tell you what the measures are in the common areas. Please follow these signs and follow the indicated walking routes. Implemented measures may include (but are not limited to):

  • Use the lift with the maximum people indicated on the stickers
  • Always use the stairs in accordance with signing
  • Ascending traffic as much as possible via the main stairwell
  • Downward traffic as much as possible via the emergency stairwell (without use of emergency exit)
  • Walk as far as possible to the right in the corridors and keep your distance
  • Keep at least 1.5 meters away from other people, including at the reception, coffee machines and pantries
  • Keep the toilet portal as free as possible

Entries are equipped with a sanitizing station. Please sanitize your hands upon entering the building and then follow further signage and instructions.

A sticker on the lift will indicate the maximum amount of people allowed on the lift at the time. This amount is based on the principle of social distancing and the 1.5-meter measures. Please follow the signs.

Signs will indicate whether stairs are one way, or if not possible, who has right of way. Generally, ascending traffic uses the main stairwell and downward traffic uses the emergency stairwell (without use of emergency exits). If using the same stairs, always keep right and follow the signage.

Yes, meeting rooms can still be booked. However, measures have been taken to adhere to the social distancing measures. The maximum amount of people allowed in the room has been decreased to be able to guarantee the 1.5 meter distance. Keep 1.5 meter distance from each other, also when seated, and clean the table after use with the available cleaning aids.

Yes, earlier this year we have instructed our cleaning partners to increase the amount of cleaning in the common areas. This includes shared tables as well as often-touched contact points.

On some locations there might be one-way traffic implemented. If this is the case, signage will clearly tell you which way to go. Examples of one-way traffic are the use of entrances just for entering OR leaving and using staircases for solely up or downwards traffic.

Kadans does not set rules for the amount of people allowed in leased spaces.

The ventilation systems in the Kadans buildings are adjusted to provide safe, clean air. They are set to not recirculate the same air within the rooms. The systems differ from building to building, for each building a plan was made to adjust the system to ensure safe air circulation, to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.

When the building has to be evacuated due to an emergency, all measures are lifted. Find your way out via the usual escape routes. When an emergency happens, temporary measures such as one-way routes are not in effect. When outside at the assembly point, please keep 1,5 meter distance to others again and await further instructions.

When your organization decides to have employees work on site again, they are responsible for having enough BHV people (emergency response officers) present on the floor. The responsibility to have enough BHV officers present lies with your own organization as usual.
