Not surprisingly, employees, visitors and the public are likely to be anxious about contracting COVID-19 for some time to come, and for many, the pandemic will have changed their perceptions of hygiene and safety standards forever. Organisations supplied to, will be concerned about incoming products and delivery personnel, and looking for independent verification that controls are in place.
Safer Food Scores working together with Safer Assured can help you to make sure that you are following best practice to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Safer Assured is a Standards and Certification Body and a trading company owned by Safer Food Scores. Environmental health experts with more than 40 years experience in the field of infection control and legal compliance have developed their COVID-SAFER UK Standard which is ‘primary authority assured’ by Milton Keynes Council.
Safer Assured Membership starts at £3 per site and is free for Safer Food Scores clients. It includes a COVID-19 Risk Assessment and Management Pack , the COVID-SAFER UK Standard and other useful resources. Members can customise the pack to suit their operation and can use this or their own COVID-19 procedures to apply for COVID-SAFER UK Approval (starting at £390). A document review and inspection on site, or by video, is a requirement of approval.
COVID-SAFER UK helps organisations implement best practice to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spread. It is particularly helpful for shops, offices, takeaways, factories and warehouses, restaurants, pubs and hotels.
The reassurance that COVID-SAFER UK approval, certification and the quality mark will provide to returning workers, to customers and to health and safety inspectors will put their mind at rest and prove invaluable to employers.
