COVID-19 has created many challenges for companies all over the UK, who have needed to adapt quickly to protect their staff, whilst remaining operational. In many cases this has meant implementing a working from home strategy; a sensible and important measure, however what about those who cannot perform their job role from home?
Industries including construction, retail, manufacturing and distribution are amongst those who are affected by this with many employees in these industries continuing to work on site. With a government plan to ease lockdown restrictions expected to be released in the near future, it is also likely that we will see this number increase in the coming weeks.
The plan will set out safety measures which businesses must implement, key to which will be maintaining social distancing, involving the reorganisation of work spaces and preventing staff from making unnecessary trips to other areas of the business premises. The challenge this presents is a need for businesses to find new ways to communicate both internally and externally. One solution to this is the introduction of two-way radios which is a measure is supported within the government guidelines.
As an innovative communication solutions provider, SFL Mobile Radio have already helped businesses with their social distancing strategy, including a well-known DIY retail outlet who recently purchased 700 XT180 twin packs. Remaining operational throughout, SFL are committed to supporting customers both old and new through these challenging times and will continue to do so through the coming months.
