Keeping you, your people, family and friends Safe
There are so many opinions and guides on how to keep safe in the Coronavirus Pandemic, so we advise you seek advice from a number of sources and put into place best practice. Howard James wanted to let you know what we are doing to actively promote our people, family and friends safe at this terrible time.
- Maintain 1 metre distance from others - to reduce risk of infection when someone sneezes, coughs or even speaks, maintain 1 metre distance or more. (Simply put droplets coming our of someones nose or mouth are heavier than air, so once they leave the body anything expelled is heading downwards, if you are over 1 metre away, its not hitting you in the face).
- Make wearing a mask a norm - When around other people, wear a mask to reduce risk. We have had fabric masks made for our team. (Anyone with an underlying health conditions should wear at least an FFP2 mask).
- Avoid the 3Cs - Avoid spaces that are Closed, Crowded or involve Close contact. (risks a re higher in crowded, poorly ventilated spaces). if you can't open windows to increase ventilation
- Install Air Purifiers - We have installed Bliueair Pro air purifiers into our offices. Clean air coupled with masks, whilst not perfect does again reduce risk.
- Don't touch Eyes, nose and mouth - Hands touch many surfacces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can tranfer the virus to your eyes, nose and mouth allowing the virus to enter your body.
- Regulary clean your hands - We don't need to tell you this, but eliminating germs including the virus on your hands is a must.
- Disinfect Surfaces - some surfaces are touched more than most, think about Door handles, phones, cups, screens and disinfect at regular intervals, washing hands after contact.
- If you feel unwell with any of the following symptoms - fever, dry cough or tiredness, stay at home! Isolate from everyone, especially the vulnerable, seek medical advice.
