To coincide with the easing of lockdown restrictions from 17 May, Leeds Dock has launched a Blue Tick scheme that entails businesses adhering to a robust benchmark of safety measures, in addition to elevated cleaning and security provisions across the public realm, to collectively manage the risk of COVID-19.
This safety benchmark is composed of five guidelines recommended by the government, that include 1) the completion of a COVID-19 risk assessment 2) appropriate cleaning, handwashing and hygiene procedures 3) staff accommodations to work from home where possible 4) social distancing enforcement and 5) coordinating further mitigating actions to manage transmission risk.
A Blue Tick sign is displayed at the entrances of businesses in Leeds Dock that actively follows these five Blue Tick guidelines. Please note that these guidelines are in addition to continuing health and safety protocols individually implemented by businesses on the estate, information for which can be found on their respective websites.
This collective action is a vital step towards safeguarding Leeds Dock.
