2020 presented challenges for many businesses, we’re proud that since April 2020 we have put stringent measures in place to ensure our facilities are COVID secure and that the health and safety of our employees is of paramount importance. Since April 2020 we have been able to resume operations in a safe and secure environment.
Following government guidelines on safe working practices during the pandemic, we have made sure that our employees are able to practice social distancing and follow procedures set out to make social distancing achievable.
Access to the necessary Personal Protective Equipment such as gloves and masks has been provided where needed to help keep our teams protected and mitigate risks. We have also ensured that hand cleaning and sanitising facilities are located throughout the workplace and that surfaces and equipment are cleaned more frequently and in line with government guidance.
Orthoplastics Managing Director, Mark Allen said: “Here at Orthoplastics, our priority is always our people. We are doing everything we can to make sure that our employees’ health, safety and wellbeing is at the core of everything we do.
Aside from the changes to the workplace and our working practices, we have also implemented a COVID team who regularly meet to review the latest government advice to make sure we are following the most up to date guidelines and whether there are any further actions required to remain COVID secure. We have kept employees up to date and made sure they are involved in any changes to working practices to ensure the safety measures are adhered to and effective.”
