|COVID-19 - CEMEX Poster supporting Mask and Move Policy |
As Covid-19 cases are on the rise nationally, it is useful to consider any additional measure to reduce the potential for transmission in the workplace. The attached poster has been created to publicise and communicate CEMEX’s new ‘Mask and Move’ policy for shared offices. Members may wish to consider whether introducing such a policy could be a useful additional control measure within their operations.
|COVID-19 CEMEX implements 'Mask and Move Policy' to reduce risk of virus transmission|
CEMEX has recently implemented a ‘Mask and Move’ Policy in all shared office areas. This means that staff are asked to wear a face covering whenever they are away from their desk or workstation in all shared office areas and applies to everyone other than those who would normally be exempt from the mandatory wearing of face coverings under government guidelines. A poster is also downloadable from the resources section of Safequarry
|COVID-19 - Action Cards to communicate COVID-19 early outbreak management information|
Downloadable cards provide advice to individuals that own, manage or are responsible for a specific business or organisation within the community on how to respond to a COVID-19 outbreak by;
- Identifying an outbreak of COVID-19 (one or more confirmed case depending on the business or organisation)
- Reporting the outbreak to your local health protection team
- Working with your local health protection team to respond
Each situation has an individual Action Card which provides specific COVID-19 Early Outbreak Management Information for that location. The Action Cards are designed to be printed or downloaded to keep on-hand in your business or organisation. (Please note these assets are cleared for use in England only.)

REMEMBER THE SIMPLE MEASURES THAT WILL KEEP YOU AND YOUR COLLEAGUES SAFE FROM COVID 19
The increased amount of travel and social interaction which is now permitted, presents much greater opportunity to contract and transmit Coronavirus and the gains achieved during lockdown could easily be lost. Recent press reports suggest that numbers of cases are increasing and a second wave may already be occurring, with some very localised spikes in businesses and towns.
It is essential that organisations and individuals remain vigilant. The basic control measures (social distancing, good hygiene etc.) that were identified at the outset continue to be relevant and effective.
Members are therefore advised to:
- Ensure their workplaces remain COVID safe
- Review and if necessary supplement the control measures in place
- Conduct regular audits and inspections of the COVID measures
- Monitor compliance with site COVID rules
- Provide regular and frequent refresher toolbox talks to maintain awareness and reinforce the message
- Having contingency measures in place that will ensure that further site shutdowns can be implemented quickly and safely if this becomes necessary.
The MPA’s ‘Ten Rules of Engagement’ are as applicable now as much as ever…
