Safe Working Practices

At Romax, we take the health and safety of our team and clients very seriously, which is why we have taken practical steps to ensure that our company is #CovidAware and #CovidSecure during these unprecedented times. Due to the measures that we have put in place, you can be confident that your supply chain is operating in a way that is compliant with the government’s COVID-19 guidance, and that everyone involved is able to work in a safe environment.

Working Safely during Covid-19 Covid Aware Certificate

Following the government’s guidance on managing the risks of COVID-19, we have considered five steps of working safely together to ensure that our company is as safe as it can be for both our team and our clients.

Working environment

We have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment in which we looked at the risks of COVID-19 within our workplace and the ways that we can protect our team going forward. For each risk, we have been able to identify sensible measures that we can put in place in order to limit these. Throughout this assessment, the team has been consulted about their concerns, because no-one knows their roles better than they do. This has helped us to make informed decisions through working together, and has enabled us to create a safe working environment for all.

The cleaning protocol at Romax has been adapted in line with the government’s COVID-19 guidance in order to protect our team. All areas have been cleaned and are ready for safe use, and regular, efficient cleaning of workspaces, equipment, and frequently touched objects, such as door handles, will be carried out. To ensure that our team follows handwashing guidance, we have displayed posters showing how to wash hands effectively, reminding people not to touch their faces, and stating that they should be sneezing or coughing into a tissue and disposing of this immediately. We also have multiple hand sanitiser stations which people can use if they are unable to wash their hands straightaway.

New instructions

To ensure the safety of both our team and your supply chain, we have taken all reasonable steps to enable people to work from home where possible. This has been managed through giving people access to all equipment they need in order to work from home, including remote access to work systems where necessary. Only those who are essential to have on-site will be working at Romax rather than at home, and we will only have the minimum number of people required on-site at any one time.

For those who are required on-site, we have measures in place which enable them to remain at a 2m distance from others. Workspaces will be dedicated to a particular person to limit the sharing of surfaces and equipment, and will be located at least 2m apart wherever possible. Any activities that mean that people cannot remain 2m apart have been considered to see if they are truly necessary, and we have also ensured that social distancing can take place in communal areas, such as break rooms and entrances.

Covid Aware and Covid Secure

When social distancing is not possible, measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of our team and clients. There will be an increased amount of efficient cleaning in areas where people need to work in close proximity to each other, and all activities where social distancing cannot be maintained will be kept as short as possible. People will be able to work back-to-back or side-to-side rather than face-on to others, and screens or barriers will be introduced wherever possible. We are also ensuring that individuals only need to move around when absolutely necessary, to limit their contact with others around the building.

Through following these steps in line with the government’s COVID-19 guidance, we are confident that Romax is both #CovidAware and #CovidSecure for our team and clients.
