How Has the Coronavirus Pandemic Affected Crown Oil?
Posted on 22nd June 2020
The oil industry is classed as an essential business. We’re hugely proud of our staff who have continued to work round-the-clock to provide quick fuel deliveries for our customers across the nation.
What precautions has Crown Oil taken to protect its employees?
When returning to work, it’s understandable that there may be some anxiety and apprehension about returning to work. That’s why we’ve implemented a number of safety precautions to keep the Crown Family safe.
Watch our video to find out how we’re protecting our staff.
All doors have adequate signs highlighting the ones which are either an entry or exit point which we’ve also marked with tape on the floor.
Social distancing measures
All communal areas have floor markings ensuring the distance is adhered to. We have also introduced Perspex screens or have staff on alternate desks to maintain social distancing and reduce the risk of any potential germs and infection.
All contact areas wiped down
As well as cleaners who ensure that all working areas are clean and disinfected, we expect all staff to wipe down their working area at the start and end of each shift. We have provided disinfectant spray and hand sanitiser stations around the office.
Additional safety measures include:
• Contractors to wear PPE at all times
• All drivers wear PPE at all times
• Vulnerable staff working from home
• One-way system in the office
• All meetings via teleconferencing
• 2m social distancing at all times
• Perspex boards to separate desks
• Table and chairs wiped down before and after use
• Regular communications for social distancing
• Cleaning frequently touched areas e.g. worktops, handles, fridges etc.
• Additional cleaning rotas
• No contractors onsite with Covid-19 symptoms
• Staggered breaks
• Hand sanitiser and wipe stations throughout offices
Crown Oil Deliveries During Coronavirus
As part of the measures we’ve put in place to limit the impact of Covid-19, our drivers are keeping their contact with third parties to an absolute minimum. They won’t be asking customers to sign their handheld device to confirm delivery/receipt to avoid the risk of transmission of infection.
All our tanker deliveries, however, are metered and delivered quantities are printed automatically onto the invoice thereby providing an alternative proof of delivery.
We appreciate that some of our customers may require a P.O.D signed by a member of their staff as part of their payment process, however, this will not be possible until further notice.
