All hire equipment is fully sanitised before any system is configured and PAT tested at our facility, and then sanitised again prior to delivery.
Please note that any equipment returning to us following a hire is kept away from our main hire kit – in a temporary isolation area – before it is thoroughly cleaned, sanitised and put back in to our hire stock pool.
We ask that edit areas are cleaned by clients prior to install. However, please be assured that our install team all have sanitising material to wipe down surfaces where our equipment is going to be used – such as edit desks or tables.
Our install engineers are equipped with single use gloves and masks. All PPE is disposed of following each and every: delivery, collection or sanitising session. In addition, all our hire vans are regularly wiped down and sanitised daily.
We shall be checking prior to all deliveries and collections what our client’s respective COVID-19 policies are in-house, and for the foreseeable future, will continue to ask if there is anyone at our client’s offices / editor’s home who is showing virus symptoms before delivering the equipment onsite to help safeguard our team.
We appreciate that in order to maintain social distancing for their members of staff, some clients may be operating with restricted access to their buildings. In those instances where a viable alternative to installations / derigs being carried out onsite by our own team is preferred, we shall adopt the necessary procedure for any ‘contactless’ kit delivery / collection.
If any of our team is taken unwell during the extended lockdown, or should there be a member of their family at home who is showing potential virus symptoms, it is compulsory that they ring in to report this immediately and stick to the Government guidelines regarding self-isolation at home. No offices access is permitted until the isolation period is over.
