COVID – 19
Manufacturing Rapid Restart Initiative
During the lockdown, we’ve been busy supporting our clients in the essential business sectors. Together we have tackled many challenges presented by the virus, some expected but many not so. For manufacturers, we have some valuable learning and lessons to support your organisation in the restart. Take this opportunity to give your business the best chance of restarting profitably and safely.
For general advice on how to continue operating safely during Covid 19 please visit the worksafe website.
