Tork launches Safe at Work resource hub to support manfacturers

Professional hygiene firm Tork has launched a new resource hub, Safe at Work, to help businesses and essential workers to return to work safely in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The toolkit is a one-stop online resource for the latest up-to-date hygiene information and recommendations for businesses, combining Tork's decades of experience in professional hygiene with the latest public health recommendations.

Safe at Work has been developed specifically for manufacturers to help companies producing essential goods and those that are re-starting their operations in light of the easing of lockdown restrictions, ensuring cleaning regimes and employee safety programs are aligned with recommendations from public health bodies, such as the World Health Organisation.

Recommendations from the toolkit include proper hand hygiene protocol for site workers, including two ways to improve adherence, and enhanced surface cleaning protocol to ensure that manufacturing workspaces stay hygienic. The toolkit also includes recommendations for reviewing sites' standard operating procedures to incorporate physical distancing measures with alternative recommendations if implementing physical distancing measures is not possible.

Jenny Turner, Marketing Director - Industry, Essity Professional Hygiene, said: "Manufacturing employees have been working tirelessly to ensure people have the supplies they need during these challenging times. Tork developed the Safe at Work: Covid-19 Tooklikit for Manufacturers to ensure these essential workers have the resources necessary to reinforce and augment their cleaning procedures for safe site operation.

"With the easing of lockdown restrictions and many manufacturers re-starting operations, it's essential that returning employees feel confident and safe at work. Site managers should rest assured that these expert recommendations will help keep their facility safe and hygienic now and into the future."
