Uform Increases Safety Measures in Response to Covid-19
At Uform we are doing everything we can to protect the health and wellbeing of our people and our customers during this time.
As a direct response to the Global pandemic, we have implemented several measures to ensure that health and wellbeing remains at the forefront of our organisation.
Rapid On-Site Testing
We have recently introduced on-site Covid-19 testing for all our employees. This rapid test will detect any employee who currently has Covid-19 with results available within 15-30 minutes. Its objective is to identify Asymptomatic cases within the workforce to help control the spread.
Temperature Checks & Provision of PPE
Upon entry to Uform, each employee will be required to undergo temperature control checks through body scanning technology. Staff have also been provided with suitable PPE and the wearing of face masks is mandatory throughout the premises alongside social distancing measures. One-way systems, mobile hand sanitising stations and restrictions on the use of meeting rooms and offices have also been stepped up in recent weeks.
Working From Home
In line with the ever-changing Government guidelines, we have encouraged office based staff to work from home where they can. This has included significant investment in IT systems to ensure our infrastructure is flexible and robust to support this change across the relevant departments within the business.
Health & Wellbeing Support
Throughout the pandemic, staff have been provided with various forms of support to help deal with any stress or anxiety because of the uncertain time’s we are in. This has included the provision of a third-party financial support service, mental health awareness with links to various online services and regular communication through staff newsletters on Covid-19 related matters.
The above measures have been developed based on the latest scientific and medical advice and demonstrate Uform’s leadership as a responsible, purpose-led business. As always, we are ready to adapt our plans in the future in line with this ever-fluid situation and are confident in our ability to continue to support our people and our customers throughout this crisis.
