Social Distancing

Please ensure you take responsibility and adhere to the recommended social  distancing measures whilst working, to include:

  1. Maintain a 2-metre social distance wherever possible, you should:
    • Pass people promptly in the corridor
    • Don’t stand and chat with colleagues
    • Stay within the boundaries that have been identified (in all operational and rest areas, including the smoking shelter)
  2. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use a hand sanitiser. Always wash your hands with soap and water when you arrive at work, when you use the clocking in machine, before you leave work and at the beginning and end of every break
  3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  4. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin and wash your hands or use hand sanitiser.
  5. You should only come into work if you are well and no one in your household is self-isolating.
  6. Remember – you are personally responsible for ensuring compliance with the above.
  7. If you use our transport you MUST wear a face covering – failure to do so will result on you not being permitted to get on the bus and termination of contract for breach of health & safety.

Many thanks and Good Luck!
