BH Doors and Engineering have changed our working procedures and have adopted new risk assessments to minimise the risks for our staff and customers. Also, we have been rescheduling work to be at quieter of empty times within buildings to allow us to work as much of our work is upon the main entrance of a building, which may mean working out of hours.

Following the Government lockdown announcement and latest guidance, BH Doors remains fully open and operational, following strict internal and site specific COVID-19 RAMS. We will continue to support customers, for any door or service maintenance issue.

As the pandemic evolves, we will continue to monitor, review and where necessary, amend our procedures in accordance with the latest government guidelines to ensure our mutual safety and high levels of service delivery.

Some of the risks and procedures we are adopting are as follows –

Hand Washing

Hand washing facilities with soap & hot water in place.

Stringent hand washing taking place.

Paper towels/hand dyers for drying of hands.

See hand washing guidance. 

NHS – Best way to wash your hands

Gel sanitisers in all vans and engineers’ toolboxes, where washing facilities are not readily available.



Frequently cleaning & disinfecting objects & surfaces that are touched regularly particularly in areas of high use such as door handles, light switches, reception area using appropriate cleaning products & methods.


Social Distancing

Social Distancing -Reducing the number of persons in any work area to comply with the 2-metre (6.5 foot) gap recommended by the Public Health Agency.

Gov – guidance on social distancing 

Taking steps to review work schedules including start & finish times/shift patterns, working from home etc. to reduce number of workers on site at any one time.  Also relocating workers to other tasks.

Redesigning processes to ensure social distancing in place.

Ensuring sufficient rest breaks for staff.

Social distancing also to be adhered to in canteen area & smoking areas.


Wearing of Gloves

Where Risk Assessment identifies wearing of gloves as a requirement of the job, an adequate supply of these will be provided.  Staff will be instructed on how to remove gloves carefully to reduce contamination and how to dispose of them safely.



Where RPE is a requirement for risks associated with the work undertaken the following measures will be followed:

Tight-fitting respirators (such as disposable FFP3 masks & reusable half masks) rely on having a good seal with the wearer’s face.  A face fit test will be carried out to ensure the respiratory protective equipment (RPE) can protect the wearer.  Wearers must be clean shaven.


Symptoms of Covid-19

If anyone becomes unwell with a new continuous cough or a high temperature in the workplace, they will be sent home & advised to follow the stay-at-home guidance.

Geoff, Simon and Ed will maintain regular contact with staff members during this time.

If advised that a member of staff or public has developed Covid-19 & were recently on our premises the management team of the workplace will contact the Public Health Authority to discuss the case, identify people who have been in contact with them & will take advice on any actions or precautions that should be taken. 



Procedures in place for Drivers to ensure adequate welfare facilities available during their work – Reference:
