Each member of staff is to record their temperature in the file provided using a contact-free infrared thermometer prior to the commencement of work. IPA 70% alcohol wipes are provided to sanitise the thermometer after usage.
We have identified staff members who are more susceptable to disease
Since each workday's tasks can vary greatly, daily team briefings are held to discuss the safety protocols to be followed
Team members are instructed in safe working procedures, such as social distancing and hand sanitizing procedures
Clean, suitable work clothes are worn on a daily basis
Hand sanitizer is provided at the entrance to the Maintenance Workshop
Breaks are staggered so that social distancing can be maintained whilst resting. During breaks, staff are instructed to use the same chair and location each time.
Wherever possible, all staff use their own tools. Any shared tools are sanitised with IPA 70% alcohol wipes upon return.
Only one person may use a company vehicle at any one time
In addition to the standard Maintenance PPE, disposable face masks, disposable gloves, reusable face coverings, and hand sanitizer are provided
Staff are instructed to use the reusable face covering when a person (guests, colleague, or otherwise) approaches, whilst maintaining a social distance
When called out to maintain an occupied holiday let, facemask and gloves must be worn
Guests occupying an accommodation must be asked to either vacate or go into a different room whilst the maintenance task is performed
Once the maintenance task in an occupied accommodation is completed, all surfaces that the member of staff has come into contact with are wiped down using IPA 70% alcohol wipes, including the door handle as the staff member leaves the accommodation
Any debris creatd during the maintenance process, including disposable gloves or other PPE, should be double bagged for disposal
Hand sanitizer is to be used before entering the vehicle to reduce the risk of transmission of disease via the door handles or interior surfaces
Upon any return to the Maintenance Workshop, hands are to be washed thoroughly using soap and water
