BPIF rolls out Covid-Secure Road Map

The British Printing Industries Federation (BPIF) has announced the launch of a new ‘Covid-Secure Road Map’, designed at helping print business return to work in a safe and legal manner after the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) lockdown.

The plan features information, guidance and the latest legislation that printers need to consider as the industry moves towards a full reopening.

The road map sets out a total of eight steps, including engaging with employees, understanding employee vulnerabilities, planning your return to business, and introducing changes to prevent the spread of the virus.

Printers are also advised to communicate changes to staff, monitor operations closely, take further action if requires and publish certification to show that they Covid-secure.

“It’s important to note that this is not a short-term crisis and it’s quite likely that Covid-19 will circulate in the human population long-term,” the BPIF says.

“It’s becoming more apparent that, until we have a more effective treatment or vaccine, social distancing and more regular and enhanced cleaning routines will have to continue for some time.

“The BPIF Covid-Secure Road Map takes you through eight steps of the journey in a clear and easy to follow manner, with additional elements within each step – suitable guidance and templates are listed within each step, along with our recommended actions to be taken.”
