By adhering closely to government guidelines, the mill is operating with a number of new measures in place to protect the safety of our staff and the local community.
Anyone who can work at home is doing so. The majority of our office staff are now working from home, including the sales and marketing, technical, finance and human resources teams. Most of those still on site are directly involved in or supporting the manufacturing and distributing of our products.
We are limiting the number of people on site and adhering to strict social distancing throughout the mill. In the occasional cases whereby staff need to work closer than two metres apart, they are provided with highly effective FFP3 masks with respirators.
To ensure further safeguarding, 42 additional hand sanitising stations, disposable gloves, alcohol wipes, disinfectant sprays and other cleaning materials have been made accessible throughout the mill, with clear guidelines about when people should use them.
The procedure for incoming deliveries has also been changed to ensure interaction between drivers and staff is minimised.
We are monitoring the situation closely and following advice provided by government and Public Health England. Should we need to, we have plans in place to make further changes to our operations.
Thanks go to our staff for their support in this difficult time, to enable us to continue to supply our loyal customers.
