CORONAVIRUS (COVID 19) ADVICE

With Coronavirus continuing to spread to different parts of the world, Safety First Awareness wants to safeguard our staff, service users, and clients to remain healthy and infection-free.

Due to the nature of the work Safety First Awareness carry out, we want to ensure our staff and clients are fully informed of measures to take; therefore we have put together the following guidelines for our staff and clients on how to avoid or avoid the spreading of Coronavirus.

Reducing the Risk

Safety First Awareness will provide alcohol hand gel at the main reception area to be offered to all visiting our offices. Staff and visitors will be expected to wash their hands for 20 seconds with soapy water or use hand gel sanitiser. We have a ready supply of tissues available onsite and recommend that these be disposed of into a rubbish bin once used, and that you wash your hands for 20 seconds with soapy water or use hand gel sanitiser after. We will also ensure that bathrooms have an adequate supply of washing facilities, including soap, warm water and an appropriate method of hand drying. All hard surfaces that come into contact with hands (regularly) will be cleaned daily. Such surfaces will include the following, as a minimum:

  • Door handles.
  • Doorbells / intercoms.
  • Handrails, Banisters and Stairgates.
  • Taps, Toilet Roll Holders / Dispensers and Paper Towel Dispensers.
  • Work Tops, Serving Hatches, Tables and Chairs.

If you have symptoms you and others in your household should self isolate immediately, should you be unable to cope with your symptoms at home contact NHS 111 or in an emergency 999 to seek medical advice.  Also, contact your Safety First Awareness representative or the HR department at Head Office on 01908 046914. Please follow this advice even if your symptoms are minor.
