Lifting the COVID lockdown

Getting back to business 'as usual'

Preparing your business for the post-lockdown world

As we edge into the gradual easing of lockdown regulations,

business across the UK are preparing themselves for what is going to be the new normal, including provision of hand sanitisers and face masks for staff and customers.

There are some quick and easy steps you can take  to ensure you are prepared and providing a "COVID-secure workplace".

Items you will need to consider :
Risk Assessment
Provision of hand sanitiser for staff and customers, pupils and students
Provision of PPE
   Face Masks - you may need these for staff and for customers
   Face Shields - you may need these for staff and for customers
Cleaning materials - sanitiser, disinfectant etc
Ensure you have ample soap and hand towels
Have a stock of bin bags
Signage to remind staff and customers about social distancing and hand washing

Please note.
You will be using a lot more cleaning materials than you had previously and generating a lot more waste.
All businesses will be preparing at the same time as you are, there will be an inevitable spike in demand and reduction in availability, prepare as far in advance as you possibly can.

We wish everyone the best of luck in this new normal we are emerging into. Take care & stay safe please.
