Businesses across Wales are stepping up to meet their legal requirements in order to keep customers, clients and staff safe as lockdown lifts, and Swansea BID has been supporting its BID area Businesses with this over the past few months.
BID is working closely with Green Hat Consulting, who are specialists in Health and Safety within industry, to help get our businesses up to speed with the procedures they must put in place before they can open. Our video below shows David Hardwidge getting his popular Lower Oxford Street bakery, Reeds, prepared to re-open shortly.
Andrew Douglas, Business Liaison Officer at Swansea BID said: “To meet their legal requirements, Businesses must have a Covid-19 risk assessment in place to show that their premises are safe for customers and staff. Otherwise, they cannot open. Green Hat have provided a template for risk assessment, and there is also the option for Green Hat to come in and to carry out the risk assessment, acting as a one-stop-shop for business during this crucial time.
“We are seeing more and more firms opening their doors to the public and getting back to business, and this is something we all want to see. Car parking is free in Council car parks throughout the whole of July, and the bus Station in Swansea Quadrant will open up again on Sunday 12 July, so there is a real sense of things going back to normal now. Let’s continue to do everything we can to instil confidence that Swansea City Centre is a safe place to be, and let’s remind consumer what we have to offer.”
