COVID-secure guidelines are now law – book an IGA COVID-compliance audit to ensure you comply

30 September 2020

The UK’s COVID alert has risen to 4 and COVID-secure guidelines are now legal obligations, so you could face fines of up to £10,000 if your staff do not wear face coverings or don’t self-isolate when required.

The Prime Minister has stated that these restrictions may be in place for six months, so don’t forget that COVID-19 compliance audits are still available to you as a benefit of membership to help you ensure you are meeting requirements.

If you need guidance on making your garage COVID-secure, and want to demonstrate to customers that your garage is safe and compliant, one of our field team can pay you a visit to help you to achieve compliance in line with government advice.

Once your audit has been completed and you have met the guidelines you will receive a poster of compliance to show that your garage is COVID-secure, reassuring you, your staff and your customers that your business premises are safe.

If your garage needs to close due to a local or national lockdown, this audit will also be indispensable in helping you quickly get your business back up and running again when restrictions lift.

Members who have completed their audit say the audit and poster have given customers and staff the confidence to carry on with their day knowing that all necessary precautions are in place.

To book your visit or for more information, please call the IGA direct member helpline, 0845 305 4230, or email enquiries@rmif.co.uk.
