Staying Safe & Personal Hygiene
Please continue to be a champion of the COVID-19 regulations in your respective areas and play your part in containing the spread of the virus.
Please do not dismiss the importance of safe working practices and personal hygiene to help keep yourself and others safe
- Adhere to government regulations, and client requests, on the wearing of face coverings and appropriate PPE
- Wash your hands well and often, for 20 seconds with soap and hot water or use a sanitizer gel.
- Practice social distancing as recommended by your respective authorities.
- Use a tissue for coughs and sneezes – Catch it, Bin it, Kill it
- Keep your desk or area of work clean and regularly wipe down any IT equipment and phones.
- If you do not have a tissue use your sleeve (not your hands).
- Promote strict hygiene when using staff canteens or rest areas and ensure you continue to observe social distancing.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
- If possible, open windows or adjust air conditioning to promote airflow
Ensuring the practice of social distancing at all times, by remaining 2 metres apart from colleagues, customers, visitors and contractors, will significantly reduce your likelihood of being contacted by authoritative Track and Trace systems. You are only required to self-isolate when contacted by Track and Trace teams, or if you experience symptoms.
If you are unable to take any of the precautions listed above, please let us know at
