Keep your garage safe throughout the Christmas period with an IGA COVID-19 Compliance audit

Keep your garage safe throughout the Christmas period with an IGA COVID-19 Compliance audit

30 November 2020

A new tiered restriction system is being introduced tomorrow, and while restrictions will be eased from 23 to 27 December, another set of rules will likely be in place from the New Year.

Make sure your garage premises are safe through it all with an IGA COVID-19 compliance audit, still available to you as a benefit of membership. Nearly 600 members have completed theirs – call us today to book your visit.

COVID-Secure guidelines are still 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. Book your site visit today to help you ensure you are meeting requirements and can keep your garage running safely.

One of our field team will visit your premises to provide guidance on making your garage COVID-secure, helping you to achieve compliance in line with government advice and demonstrate to customers that your garage is safe and compliant.

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, the 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.
