Safe working during Covid-19
Information for our customers and suppliers
We have created and implemented a new COVID-19 Safe Working Policy and a COVID-19 External Safe Working Procedure to enable us to bring in new safe working procedures as we increase our production and conduct a phased return to work for our staff.
We are now working within strict new safety guidelines, including full compliance with social distancing guidelines throughout the factory and communal spaces, as well as mandatory PPE equipment, hygiene and cleaning procedures.
Information from the UK Government, Health & Safety Executive, Public Health Wales, and the World Health Organisation is constantly being updated, and we will continue to monitor official sources for the latest guidance and control measures.
Staying Covid-19 secure in 2021
We confirm we have complied with the government’s guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19, as outlined in our Staying COVID-19 Secure Certificate.
Five Steps to Safer Working Together:
- We have carried out a COVID-19 Risk Assessment and shared the results with the people who work here
- We have cleaning, handwashing and hygiene procedures in line with guidance
- We have taken all reasonable steps to help people work from home
- We have taken all reasonable steps to maintain a 2m distance in the workplace
