Helping businesses do their bit to keep Havering safe

Published: Thursday, 3 September 2020

Havering Council has launched its new business toolkit to help businesses stay Covid-secure and do their bit to prevent a local lockdown.

As part of the Council’s #DoingMyBit campaign, which is working to help prevent the spread of infection, local businesses have been called on to get involved and show that they are committed to keeping the community safe.

The way that businesses operate, and the way customers use them, has changed dramatically due to coronavirus measures.

The toolkit provides a wealth of information on how businesses can ensure they are abiding by Government Covid 19 measures and keeping staff members and customers safe.

It includes social distancing posters, guidance on re-opening premises’ safely, and what to do if there is a Covid 19 outbreak in the workplace.

You will also find information on the Council’s Covid 19 business inspections and an introduction to the #DoingMyBit campaign.

The Staying Covid-Secure - toolkit for businesses is available to download now.

Councillor Damian White, Leader of Havering Council, said:

“After an incredibly difficult few months for our local businesses, I am proud to see how well they are adapting to the changes that the Coronavirus pandemic has brought.

“This new toolkit will help guide our local businesses through public health advice and government guidance so they can ensure they are compliant and Covid-secure.

“Coronavirus remains a threat in our community, and our local businesses doing their bit to keep Havering safe will prevent a local lockdown in our borough.”
