Coronavirus – The steps we’re taking

Somerset Film is taking Coronavirus seriously. We’re taking all advisable measures to help minimise the risk of exposure and contagion to our employees and the public.

The steps we’re taking:

  • All employees have been made aware of the symptoms of Coronavirus.
  • Hand hygiene and sneezing etiquette posters have been placed around the work-place (catch it, bin it, kill it), where they are likely to be seen.
  • Hand washing guidelines have been placed above all sinks.
  • Frequently used surfaces are cleaned routinely.
  • Antibacterial wipes and gel have been placed at the entrance of the building and we are instructing all visitors to sanitise their hands on entry.
  • Regular emails about the coronavirus have been circulated, keeping all staff updated on government advice and our current policy (including our risk assessment).
  • Staff have been involved in regular discussions on the virus during weekly staff meetings, ensuring all questions and concerns are addressed.
  • Staff have been encouraged to stay home if they’re unwell.
  • Somerset Film will implement a 14-day self-isolation period for any staff members who suspect exposure to the virus (travel).
  • Somerset Film is prepared to advise staff to work from home, if public building closure is advised by the government or determined best practice by Somerset Film.

Building closure is a last resort and will only take effect should public access to the building be deemed unsafe. Somerset Film is passionate about community and the safety and well-being of all those who come through our doors is of utmost importance to us.
