In light of the current situation in respect of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we would like to advise all our customers of the steps we are taking here at Bex Design to minimise any impact the outbreak may have on our ability to fulfil orders.
Bex Design is continuing to prepare for the spread of COVID-19 and has established clear communications with employees, customers and suppliers. To this end, and in an effort to reduce contamination through the business where possible, we have decided to implement a split shift pattern starting on Monday 16th March 2020 running through until Tuesday 14th April 2020. This is subject to change and may be extended if necessary, based on any further developments as advised by The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and The World Health Organisation (WHO).
Further to this we are also implementing measures designed to minimise the risk of spreading germs throughout the factory and offices including:
- Advising customers and suppliers not to visit the site
- Suspending all internal & external meetings with suppliers/customers until further notice
- Providing disposable gloves for employees to wear when receiving materials, parcels etc through Goods In
- Adding anti-microbial push plates to doors
- Ensuring that the factory and offices are cleaned daily using anti-bacterial cleaning products
Moving forward, business continuity plans are in place which include providing frontline teams with technology to enable them to work from home should the need to arise. We would also suggest that you consider your future order requirements and bring forward any requests if possible. This will give us the best chance of ensuring deliveries are met should we suffer from staff shortages due to an outbreak of the virus amongst our personnel.
The business continues to monitor the situation daily and will take action based on latest government guidelines and hope that our customers are aware that we are taking the threat of possible disruption seriously and planning accordingly.
