How we are managing the risk
of COVID-19 at work
Updated Operational Procedure
In compliance with the government’s guidelines for managing the risk of COVID-19 at work
The safety and well-being of our clients, partners, staff, and their families is our upmost priority. Therefore, following a thorough review and test period, we are pleased to share below the details of our updated operational procedure. We are also pleased to share our ‘5 steps to safer working together’ certificate.
Our operational and manufacturing staff will be able to return to work. In addition to public guidelines on social distancing and hand washing, we have implemented and briefed all staff in accordance with the below summary of the new procedure and processes we have put in place.
Our sales, marketing and admin teams will also continue to work from home, other than on very rare occasions when it may be necessary for them to visit the office.
New Shift Patterns and Buddy System
We will be moving from a single shift pattern, to a two shifts per day pattern, with a clear change-over period. This will allow adequate social distancing, help to reduce contact and minimise cross contamination between teams.
For times in which staff are required to come in close contact when required to lift or carry heavy items we have implemented a buddy system – meaning we can minimise and contain any unavoidable close contact.
Designated Routes, walkways and use of public areas
Throughout our office, manufacturing and delivery areas we have installed signage indicating designated routes for movement to minimise close contact in walkways and communal areas.
We have also allocated set toilets to specific teams and marked shared and/or soft seating areas out of bounds. All staff have been briefed to clean down their area after use with suitable products provided, as well as the daily cleaning procedure.
PPE and Staff Health Reviews
All staff will be provided with additional personal protective equipment to be worn while working. This will include gloves and face shields – in addition to the standard safety gear requirements for their jobs – as well as being provided with personal storage areas in which to store their cleaned and sanitised PPE.
Staff will also be asked to participate in a regular health survey, temperature review and oxygen level review. This is to preemptively identify any individuals at risk and reduce unnecessary exposure.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our staff for their continued cooperation.
Further information of our updated procedure for the delivery of clients’ orders will be supplied on confirmation of completed orders.
We thank all our clients in advance for their cooperation.
