Showforce’s return to work backed by tess’ expertise and safety guidance

With government guidance now
emerging for the events industry and companies beginning to return to site,
Showforce has partnered with industry safety specialist The Event Safety Shop (tess)
to develop Covid-19 protocols and risk assessments specifically for the
award-winning global crewing business.

The new working practises have been
written in-conjunction with Showforce’s NEBOSH qualified health, safety and
training manager, Laurence Jones and the highly experienced team at tess. They
are designed to minimise the risk of infection and ensure the safety of Showforce’s
crew, clients and fellow contractors in the working environment, wherever
practicably possible.

The protocols and risk assessments
consider travel to and from site, additional sanitisation procedures, dedicated
welfare areas for crew, social distancing, temperature checks for all crew
before commencing work and the development of work bubbles or buddies.  All Showforce crew will undergo rigorous
in-house training in the practises before arriving onsite and in line with
Showforce’s existing exemplary safety record. The policies ensure that its’ crew
are well trained and ready to work, along with an additional layer of support
and assurance for clients.

Operations director, Chris Martelly
comments: “As we emerge from lockdown and take tentative steps back to work,
the safety of our crews, clients and fellow industry suppliers is paramount.
Whilst this has always been the case, the ‘new normal’ requires considerations
and policies dedicated to Covid-19 safe working practises. Partnering with a
company of tess’ calibre and reputation ensures that our protocols and risk
assessments have been produced to the highest possible standards.

“Now that our crew are fully up to
speed with what is expected of them, we’re in a strong position to support our
clients and reassure them that we’ve taken all the necessary steps and
implemented essential controls to mitigate the risk of infection from Covid-19
as much as we possibly can.”

Tim Roberts, director at tess adds:
“Showforce’s commitment to safety is impressive and we’re delighted to have
supported them with their Covid-19 safe working practises. Putting the
wellbeing of the workforce, clients and the wider industry first is a
pre-requisite for anyone seeking to get

business back on the road. What
we’ve seen so far stands us in good stead for evolving our partnership with
Showforce over the coming months.”
