Covid 19 - Our Working Practices

 

Here at Ardian Outdoor we are making some changes to our working to promote colleague and customer safety. Within our operational sites, we have put in measures to allow our colleagues to practice social distancing whilst working.  This includes signposting appropriate working distances outlined by government.

  • Social Distancing - reducing the number of persons in any work area to comply with the 2metre (6.5 foot) gap recommended by the Public Health Agency

  • Hand washing facilities with soap and water in place

  • Drying of hands with disposable paper towels

  • Gel Sanitisers in any area where washing facilities not readily available

  • Tight fitting respirators (such as disposable FFP3 masks and re-usable half masks) A face fit test will be carried out to ensure the respiratory protective equipment (PPE) can protect the wearere

  • Frequently cleaning and disinfecting objects and surfaces that are touched regularly in areas of high use such as door handles, vehicles and equipment

  • If anyone becomes unwell with a new continuous cough or a high temperature in the work place they will be sent home and advised to follow the stay at home guidance

  • Line managers will maintain regular contact with staff members during this time

  • If advised that a member of staff or public has developed Covid-19 and were recently on our premises (including where a member of staff has visited other work place premises such as domestic premises), the management team of the workplace will contact the Public Health Authority to discuss the case, identify people who have been in contact with them and will take advice on any actions or precautions that should be taken. 

  • Persons should not share vehicles or cabs, where suitable distancing cannot be achieve

  • Management will promote mental health & wellbeing awareness to staff during the Coronavirus outbreak and will offer whatever support they can to help
