Covid-19: Safeguarding our customers and our team
Covid-19 has made a huge impact on all businesses and we’re all coming to terms with how it will affect us.
At Hungry Shredder, we’ve implemented measures to protect and secure our teams and the service that we provide for you.
Protecting our team and our customers
From today, our administrative staff that are able to, will be working from home. We believe it is the responsible and correct course of action to take. We have implemented explicit policies and instructions to our operations staff which include:
- Not reporting to work should they feel any symptoms such as fever, difficulty breathing, headaches and muscle aches
- Frequent sanitising of hands and, where possible, wearing sanitised gloves and face masks
- Declaring their fitness for duty each day upon arrival at work, which is subject to supervisor evaluation
- As far as is reasonably possible, we will continue to provide our service and maintain all existing policies related to data security
Looking after our customers
Continuity is our top priority with regards to the services we provide to our customers. The impact on business will be profound.
Some of you already work from home and many will implement a ‘working from home’ policy. The prospect of increased social distancing will mean entirely new ways of working.
Fulfilling GDPR and data security regulations will be a challenge for remote workers and it is going to be more important than ever that alternative, reliable solutions are available.
With this is mind, in addition to continuing to provide our regular service, we will make available additional services. We can supply sacks and security seals and collect them from homes or from remote workers where possible. Alternatively we can collect a batch direct from your office when instructed. Please contact us if you have any other specific requirements.
The forthcoming months are going to be difficult and uncertain, but I want to assure you that Hungry Shredder will be here to support you and your business with reliability and flexibility. We want to be here and be able to continue to provide a service when we have all come through this.
Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have any concerns, requests or queries.
Take care and stay well.
Managing Director, Hungry Shredder
