As both India and the UK come slowly out of Covid-19 lock-down, it is more important than ever that we all STAY ALERT outside of our home environment.
In addition to essential shopping, EVERYONE of us must stay alert while travelling to/from work and in the workplace observing social distancing rules, wearing of PPE and regular cleaning of touchable surfaces and washing of hands, hair and clothes.
Within the Standard Group of Companies, including Standard Glass Lining Technology, below are TWO of the initial steps we are/have implemented to keep our workforce and stakeholders safe.
#1. Think about Risk
Carry out a COVID-19 risk assessment across all areas of the business
Communicate the risk assessment with the employees
Publish risk assessment
#2. Managing Risk
To reduce risk to the lowest reasonably practicable level by taking preventative measures, in order of priority, by;
EVERYONE to frequently wash their hands
Frequent cleaning of ALL touchable surfaces
Make work from home a first option (where possible) for employees
Implement social distancing EVERYWHERE at work and outside of the home environment
Ensure EVERYONE understands to ISOLATE themselves at home (and go to hospital where needed) if they have Covid-19 symptoms.
To facilitate this, we have installed additional hand sanitation areas and implemented new cleaning regimes.
It is in ALL our our interests to keep the workplace safe while companies, countries and the world in general gets back to some level of economic stability.
Standard Glass Lining Technology wishes you all a Happy Ugadi.
With Coronavirus pandemic hitting everyone all around the world, these are difficult and testing times for us all.
However, it is important to remember that we will get through this and we will learn and become stronger as a result. Coronavirus is not the first pandemic that has hit the human population and it will not be the last.
Essentially, we are all on a journey which is similar to the spirit of Ugadi.
Following Winter gloom, Ugadi marks the arrival of the green shoots of nature and blossoming flowers of Spring. It is a time where new life develops and existing life gets rejuvenated with new energy and hope.
Ugadi will be very different this year, as over 1/5th of the worlds population is on lock down due to the virus. However, lets ensure we all maintain the vision and hope. In the scale of things this coronavirus is just a small blip in our life's journey and we WILL get through this. Happy 2020 Ugadi EVERYONE !
