The Freight Transport Association (FTA) and The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) have launched a new best practice guide to help transport operators and logistics businesses can restart their operations safely, effectively and quickly as the nation emerges from lockdown.
The Good Practice Guide for Covid-19 document shares practical advice from both member organisations on how firms can deliver safe environments for their staff and visitors to their facilities.
David Wells, chief executive at FTA, said: “The combined membership of our two organisations have a wealth of knowledge and insight spanning several different sectors; their experiences will help other businesses understand how best to implement safe practices during this unprecedented time and get their operations up and running as soon and as safely as possible.”
Designed to be used in conjunction with the official UK government guidance on Safer Workplaces, the document covers key considerations including risk assessments; social distancing in the workplace; cleaning of the workplace; and PPE and face coverings.
Kevin Richardson, chief executive, CILT, added: “The preparation of the Good Practice Guide for COVID-19 is an excellent example of the profession coming together to share information and generate practical guidance for the logistics sector. In conjunction with official UK government guidance on Safer Workplaces, CILT, the FTA and members from both organisations have produced a document that will be of value to all of those operating in the sector to assist in the recovery and restart of activities that are essential.”
