Open Letter To The British Retail Consortium
Throughout this pandemic, retail, and especially where it has been allowed, by being designated as ‘essential’ retail, has continued to support the British public. Workers in shops and supermarkets have rightly been identified as key workers, in recognition of the vital role which they play in keeping the country going.
The news today that the government are considering tougher measures in order to help ensure that retail remains safe for both workers and customers alike is to be welcomed. And whilst it has taken an inordinate amount of time for government to act upon this, it is clear to us that it is a necessary and justified step.
The grocery sector has undoubtedly prospered during this pandemic and whilst no-one would begrudge them this, nevertheless, they have an inherent duty of care to invest and keep investing in all of our safety. It is clear to us that up until now, they have fallen short of this responsibility.
At SafePrem ® Solutions, we share with you a passion for retail, and an acute concern for the future of the sector as we continue to feel unsafe in these environs during the Covid-19 pandemic.
One of the driving forces behind creating the world’s first independent directory of Covid safe solutions, was in order to support the very industry for which we have such passion for. And now, as the pandemic reaches such a critical phase where retail is facing tougher restrictions and potential sanctions for non-compliance, we offer our services to you in order to support the sector in any way we can.
Whether it be by providing better queuing systems, store occupancy management, safer protection for all surface contact, cleaner air or properly regulated social distancing. Included in our directory are measures which will allow shops and supermarkets the means by which to achieve all of these things, over and above the level of protection which face coverings and one-way systems can provide.
And whilst we are a commercial enterprise, half of all the revenue we generate is passed back to retail charities.
Our contact details are at the foot of this letter. We will respond instantly to a request to meet and explain as suits your schedule. Our aim is to play our part in returning public and business confidence by helping to make us all SAFER.
