SATS stood still?

Floor markers indicating a tiny “staff only” square, of 1m by 1m, have started to appear on platforms.

This is clearly in preparation for the return of SATS, platform duties for station staff. Presumably this is LU’s way of helping us maintain distancing from passengers.

Expecting staff to spend an entire platform duty, or most of it, stood in a 1mx1m square is ludicrous, and totally unworkable. Are passengers even likely to notice it?

Distancing is much harder on platforms, and with the Tube starting to fill up again, a far more sensible approach would be to just wait. Bring back SATS when it’s safe, don’t rush to return it.

I assume you are an employee of TfL (as your name is "Tubeworker"), so I have to ask why you feel it necessary to post a blog entry regarding this in favour of actually talking to the people within your own company that are implementing it, or maybe even asking a question directly to senior managers on the TfL Staff social media platform Yammer? But then, there is nothing quite like washing your dirty laundry in public, is there!!!!
