Increased PPE and sanitation aids have been implemented throughout all of our sites and vehicles to facilitate improved hygiene for all parties. This includes, but is not limited to: drivers wearing the appropriate gloves, face masks, clothing and protective equipment (wipes). All employees have been issued with hand sanitiser.
Employees should wash hands thoroughly or use hand sanitiser as below before and after entering each property, building and/or site.
Prevention of Spread
The infection is spread by being in close contact (within 2m or less) of an infected person. Spread is possible by touching a surface or object that has been contaminated. The virus can live on surfaces for longer than 72 hours.
Wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water. Do this often.
Always wash your hands when you get home or go into work.
Use hand sanitiser if available (must contain at least 60% alcohol).
Cover your mouth and nose with tissue or your sleeve when you cough or sneeze.
Wash hands thoroughly after coughing or sneezing.
Dispose of tissues immediately.
Don't touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.
Avoid close contact with people (shaking hands or kissing).
Use air dryers or paper towels in welfare areas, avoid re-useable towels.
When working on site, look for visual signs of the symptoms. If unsure, make your apologies and contact your Site Supervisor.
