We completed a Risk Assessment to meet the Government guidance of 5 steps for Safer Working Together in factories.

  • Staff & visitors entering buildings must wash their hands or use sanitising gel
  • Regular cleaning, disinfecting equipment, hand washing and hygiene procedures
  • Any staff member with Covid symptoms must not come to work until they have had a negative Covid test
  • Health questions for all visitors on our swipe-in entry system
  • Employee PPE – gloves, safety glasses, full shield visors and face masks
  • Limiting access and one way systems e.g. toilets, entry and exit into metrology room
  • Moving our toolmaking benches further apart and erecting Perspex screens
  • Social distancing - cable ties to disable middle taps, to keep hand washing /cleaning 2 metres apart
  • Blocking a short cut between CNC machines, to avoid staff passing too close to colleagues
  • Separating canteen tables and introducing flexible break times
  • HNC apprentice appointed as Safe Working Champion
  • Regular reviews of procedures
