Covid-19 Safe System of Work
To reduce the number of staff to site, Techtron does not permit unauthorised visitors. Contractors are permitted to visit site to undertake necessary maintenance work but must complete a contractor working agreement, permit to work and the Covid-19 questionnaire prior to their visit. Copies of these documents can be found in the office foyer and on the server in H&S folder. Visitors records are kept in the main office.
Visitors must not be led through the factory but around the outside of the building to their required location via the external pathway. All sales visits are suspended, and meetings are to be conducted online via Microsoft Teams/Zoom. Goods inward/dispatch have been re-directed to the warehouse and all paperwork is provided in advance. Collection baskets are located in the foyer for samples/post. Drivers should be asked to wait in their cabs until you are ready to load/unload the vehicle. Contact with the driver should be made using the face masks provided (N95) and social distancing must be maintained. Vehicle loading should be undertaken singularly however paired working is permitted within the warehouse. Delivery drivers wishing to use welfare facilities must be directed by warehouse staff to the canteen and must follow the notice provided.
Administration staff have been provided with equipment for homeworking and can regularly liaise with their line managers by Microsoft Teams. DSE risk assessments have been undertaken and weekly welfare meetings are conducted to ensure that employees remain up to date with business changes and head office briefings.
A reduced management structure has been implemented, a Production Supervisor is on site daily and a Duty Manager visits the site three days per week in accordance with a rota. Production meetings are to be held on the main shop floor with people distanced two metres from each other.
