According to the World Health Organisation (“WHO”), the chances of contracting COVID-19 from an inanimate object are very low. However, Christophe Robin is constantly monitoring the situation (and any official advice issued in connection with the same) and Christophe Robin is taking sensible measures to protect customers and staff. We suggest you review the WHO website for latest advice in this regard.
Specifically, in respect of the threat of COVID-19, additional measures implemented by Christophe Robin currently include the following:
- All Christophe Robin employees have received additional education and training on hand hygiene and we have deployed additional hand sanitisers throughout all workplaces.
- We are adhering to UK Government guidelines and supporting employees who need to self-isolate for 7 days, should they have any concerns or show flu-like symptoms, have a high temperature or a persistent cough
- In addition, we are taking extra precautions on reducing any touch and transmission points throughout all Christophe Robin premises and workplaces.
In response to COVID-19, all our carriers are taking precautionary measures to ensure the health and wellbeing of their drivers and our customers.
Please be assured that all our carriers are following the advice and guidelines from the government and that the safety of everyone is our priority.
There is currently no impact to our delivery services at this stage, however we encourage all customers to use your home address for delivery.
Moving forward all carriers will operate a contact free delivery service which means that you won’t be required to sign for any parcel that’s delivered.
You can see all carrier guidelines and measures upon visiting the nominated carrier website, emails will be provided upon dispatch to confirm delivery information.
We hope that you understand and appreciate the measures that have been implemented are to protect you and ensure we can continue operate as normal.
We also have strict safeguarding measures in place across each of manufacturing and distribution sites across the globe, which go far beyond any Government guidelines. This is to ensure our teams can work safely while maintain social distancing at all times. Other measures include providing our manufacturing and distribution colleagues with ready-to-cook ingredient meal packs at the end of each shift, sufficient to feed a family of four. These are provided free of charge and aimed at reducing the needs of our staff to visit supermarkets, increasing their own safety while reducing the strain on supermarkets to help the more vulnerable in our local regions.
We are introducing world-leading measures to monitor and safeguard the health of all colleagues working in our fulfilment centres. In addition to temperature checks and social distancing measures across all sites, we will be installing thermal imagery technology throughout our Warrington premises, with plans to deploy globally. This innovative equipment will allow us to offer early detection of elevated body temperatures which may indicate the presence of a fever,via non-invasive and non-intrusive technology. We don’t believe any other company has taken this measure.
