ensuring a safe customer experience
With the announcement of car showrooms throughout the UK being able to open on June 1st, there are a number of keys steps that employers, employees and consumers should take in order to keep these spaces safe and prevent the spread of Covid-19 now and into the future, especially with the high risk of germs potentially spreading through test vehicles and reception areas.
We've taken a look at a recent post by Car Dealer Magazine which covers the key steps that should be taken to prevent the spread of coronavirus and other viruses in car showrooms.
The key important points to consider are:
Those who can still work from home should continue to do so
Assess risks in consultation with workers
Manage the risk of transmission if two-metre distancing is impossible, eg, with shift patterns
Mark out walkways to maintain social distancing - We have a wide range of floor stickers to choose from to help with social distancing and traffic flow.
One-way systems should be introduced, with an entry and exit
Handshakes and elbow bumping to be avoided
All vehicles in the showroom and the forecourt should remain locked
Screens to protect staff should be considered in customer interaction points - View our range of protective acrylic screens here.
Desks should be placed two metres apart
Refreshments should not be served to customers
Magazines, brochures and vending machines should be removed
Halt other complimentary services such as children’s play areas
Hand sanitisation points should be implemented - We offer a range of different sanitising dispenser solutions
Cars need to be disinfected regularly - Check out our Ramsol range, the perfect solution for large sanitising operations.
Set up protocols for deliveries
Recommend appointments for sales and aftersales (with flexibility for emergencies)
Use electronic payments and digital signatures
