Covid-19 Safety Measures for Staff & Service Users

We're delighted to announce that Key Enterprises is able to open safely again after the lockdown in England. We've worked really hard to to create a safe environment and we're looking forward to welcoming everyone back! This section of the website will outline some of the procedures and extra safety measures we have in place (according to our comprehensive risk-assessment) to make sure that Key Enterprises is covid-secure.

We are pleased to inform you that from Monday 16th August 2021 K|E will return to operating in a way that is similar to how we ran before COVID-19 restrictions led to necessary changes in our set up.

Additional changes and precautions:

 

The majority of our staff and volunteers have now had both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine.

Each week, staff and volunteers take a minimum of two Covid-19 tests including a rapid antigen test (Lateral Flow) and government PCR testing. 

All staff have completed Covid-19 infection control training.

Changes to the building layout including making the reception area open-plan to allow for physical distancing. 

Floor markings throughout the building advising of the 2 metre distancing rules. 

Where possible, activities will take place outside including gardening and bike rides. 

Only essential visitors are permitted in the building and visitors are advised to arrange an appointment in advance

Masks will be provided and individuals will be encouraged to wear them at all times when in the building as well as observation of the 2m distancing rules where possible. 

The quiet room and staff room will be closed to prevent the gathering of people in close proximity. 

Regular sanitising of all touch points at intervals throughout the day including door handles, hand-wash stations and computers. 

There will be plenty of hand sanitiser available throughout the building and outside. We have also installed additional hand-washing stations. Tissues & paper towels are available throughout the building and in each department as are pedal bins.

The above list highlights just some of the extra precautions we are taking, we are working closely to a comprehensive risk assessment to ensure that our opening is as safe as possible. As there is a fair bit of change, it will take us all a little while to get used to the new way of working, but we hope you will all help us as we work things out together.

 

If you have any urgent questions or concerns please contact Anthony Robinson on 07538 413 409 or email reception@key-enterprises.com. Thank you for your support and understanding during the challenges we are working hard to manage.

 

 

We look forward to seeing you soon!
