How To Keep Your Factory COVID-Safe

Factory

CONTENTS

The threat of coronavirus is a major concern for many factory owners across the country.

Just a couple of months ago, it was announced that a factory in Norfolk had over 250 members of staff test positive for coronavirus. According to Eastern Daily Press, the outbreak was one of the worst incidents recorded yet.

The volatile nature of the virus means that just it can spread incredibly rapidly. Even if just one person in your factory tests positive, it may not be long before your entire workforce does too.

A business cannot operate without its workforce. 

If your workforce falls ill, your factory will not be able to function as normal. This will lead to a decrease in productivity and lower profits.

To prevent this from happening, you must stay on top of hygiene. If your factory is clean, your workers will be safe. 

Communication with staff

You should aim to build a solid relationship with your staff. Once a bond has been formed, it will be easier to set workplace expectations. 

First and foremost, you should teach your workforce the importance of personal hygiene. Encourage your staff to regularly wash their hand with warm soap and water for 20 seconds at a time. You may choose to provide hand sanitiser stations around the factory for ease. 

The latest guidelines suggest that workers who feel unwell should abstain from work. Even if your staff do not think they have COVID-19, it is not worth the risk. You should make it clear that only workers who feel mentally and physically well will be allowed to enter the factory.

With social distancing now a vital part of society, it may be a good idea to stagger arrival times and introduce multiple entry points to the workplace. If necessary, split your workforce into small groups. This will allow you to manage high traffic areas in a safe, efficient manner. 

One-way systems and physical barriers are also a good idea to reduce contact. It may be useful to paint arrow markings on your factory floors and attach posters to your walls.

Even after you’ve introduced new guidelines, you should make an effort to regularly review the situation. By holding regular discussions, you can discover what’s working and what isn’t, and make the necessary changes. 

Professional cleaning

For ultimate protection against the virus, you should stick to a regimented cleaning schedule. 

There are certain steps you can take without professional help, such as regularly cleaning key touchpoints. However, a professional cleaning company will be able to help your factory reach a level of hygiene like no other.
