Coronavirus Safety Key

Whilst implementing an enhanced cleaning regime for the effective cleansing of our site office and welfare facilities, in response to the Coronavirus pandemic, it became apparent that we were using a large quantity of disposable plastic gloves.

Following our on-site weekly safety forum, we held a brainstorming session on how we could maintain high standards of safety on site, while considering environmental implications in our bid to reduce waste. The team devised a ‘Coronavirus Safety Key’ which enables operatives to safely turn on and off taps, open doors, turn on and off light switches as well as operate equipment such as the microwave and toaster

All without coming into immediate contact with these high-touch surfaces, or without having to wear disposable plastic gloves.

The Coronavirus Safety Keys are mainly used in areas of comfort and rest and are issued to each operative at induction, with any damaged or lost ones replaced free of charge.

This example of best practice is just one way that projects can work to tackle the virus and reduce the spread. For full guidance and the latest Government advice read the Construction Leadership Council’s Site Operating Procedures.
