Genesis COVID-19 policy: Information for our clients

We know this is a strange time for everyone and we all keen to get back to work and start filming again…

The well being of our staff and clients are our top priority which is why we have had to make some changes in our operational policies and procedures. This will allow us to continue supplying equipment and support to the TV and film industry.

We are following the latest government and industry advice and have implemented the following measures to limit the spread and threat of the virus. As Industry, government, HSE and WHO guidance is being updated, we will update our practices accordingly

Equipment Handling
• All equipment supplied by Genesis will be sanitised before and after each use
• All members of staff handling equipment will wear suitable PPE at all times
• All members of staff will regularly wash hands, use hand sanitisers and wear suitable PPE if required
• We will clean all workstations and communal areas at the start and end of each shift
Equipment Delivery
• All Genesis drivers loading & unloading and transporting equipment will wear suitable PPE
• Upon arrival of delivery, equipment will be loaded into a designated or segregated department area if required
• Heavy lifting of equipment will often require more than one person. Increased need for PPE and time to review working processes will be required in some circumstances
• All of our delivery drivers will have a cleaning kit to ensure all areas such as steering wheels, seating and door handles and equipment if required are regularly sanitised
Equipment Collection
• We have allocated a dedicated client collection area for rental collections. This will enable us to minimise transmission risks and maintain social distancing rules
• We do not wish to handle any cash; therefore, all payments are to be made either by card, online or over the phone
Office & Warehouse Operations
• We will limit the number of people accessing our building and area’s within our building
• We have installed dedicated hand sanitiser stations and are encouraging all to use regularly
• We have implemented social distancing rules in all office areas
• We are constantly reviewing the above procedures and will update them as and when necessary
