Every aspect of our lives has been changed forever by the COVID-19 pandemic. There are those that are itching to get back to normal and many that are more anxious about returning to the way things were. At this point in time, there is still a mix of the two while the UK Government decide on appropriate measures to start returning to a ‘new normal’.
There can be confusion over what needs to happen for a safer return and that’s where we can help with safety measures, whether it be social distancing marshals or deep cleaning. Many sectors of the community will need extra help to maintain certain aspects of the guidelines and keeping on top of these can be troublesome.
The first step for many is assessing the risk and we have trained personnel who are able to assist with the initial and ongoing stages of the return policies.
Churchill Security Ltd can offer support in compiling a Risk Assessment for your premises. By analysing and identifying possible risks, we can make judgement and assessments on how to best mitigate those risks to ensure safe and secure working environments for your people and customers.
Having professional risk assessments conducted allows for the wellbeing of staff and customers to be maintained in an appropriate manner, according to the latest government guidelines during the return to work phase. The fluid nature of the guidelines can be difficult to keep up with, but Churchill is continually assessing and amending any challenges as they present themselves.
Keeping up to date and understanding how and when guidelines need to be implemented and administered can be a minefield for retail business owners. Due to the constantly evolving information and guidelines, Churchill is continually training social distancing marshals on how to apply measures safely and effectively including the use of conflict resolution amongst other challenges.
Churchill Security has formally trained staff that are aware of the procedures needed to continue to keep safe, protecting themselves and others, minimising any further potential transmission of the COVID-19 within your workforce and customers.
The use of Social Distancing Marshals allows for businesses to mitigate staff responsibility for systems, policies and procedures that they may not be qualified in and could be liable for, allowing for a more business as usual approach with staff able to still dedicate time to their core duties.
Whilst Social Distancing is the core function for a much safer return to work there is a raft of other measures that can be added to ensure an even greater degree of safety and wellbeing for everyone involved, depending on your business and its needs.
People flow control is something that can be introduced for businesses that need a more accurate system in place. The system we use is designed to monitor how many people are entering and leaving a specific area, it provides an all-in-one solution to monitoring social distancing measures. With its simple setup and operation, our People Flow Control Solution can be quickly deployed in a number of situations and public places.
Our cameras use advanced AI technology to track and monitor the continuous flow of people, with our DSS Express software being effectively calibrated to allow you to limit the number of occupants in your facility, as well keeping an up to date track of the flow of the people entering and exiting. The system can be set to your specific restrictions, allowing you to choose the maximum occupants and the entrance you wish to monitor.
One of the most advanced ways to help maintain a safe working environment is through the use of Thermal Imaging Cameras to monitor entrants and potentially avoid any issues before they occur.
Thermal imaging is up to 800% faster than manual approach, able to monitor up to 30 people simultaneously and has a 3-meter detection range allowing for social distancing. With no contact, cameras are quick and easy to install allowing for a seamless transition back to work.
Thermal imaging used to detect elevated body temperatures is one measure that can be applied in the early detection of health problems and allows suspected carriers to be assessed for further screening before any potential spread can occur.
However, not all thermal detection equipment is equal and careful consideration needs to be made when contemplating thermal imaging for your business.
With the effects of COVID 19 staying with us for some time, many businesses require a more substantial cleaning process. Churchill Security has been well established in the commercial industry for many years now and has implemented appropriate cleaning procedures to deal with the added needs for more thorough cleaning of sites.
We offer out-of-hours services – including early mornings, evenings and weekends – so that our service has no impact on your business operations. All our cleaning operatives are trained in the most recent best practices so that you can rest assured that our range of coronavirus deep cleaning options will be done according to Public Health England Guidance.
No matter what your business cleaning requirements are we can tailor a package to suit. Whether you require a one-off service or a long-term contract, we will be able to deliver a solution that works for you.
Keeping your hands clean is one of the most important actions you can take. After picking anything up or touching any surface, ensure you use a sanitiser or wash your hands thoroughly. Surface cleaning or deep cleaning may be required depending on the nature of the activities involved in your business.
Churchill Security is here to help your business, school or any other association return to an environment that is a safe as possible for everyone. There are many ways to do this and we have been at the forefront helping numerous enterprises so far. Should you wish to get some further information on any of our services please give one of our staff a call.
