by Abi Philp, 12th March 2020
LOOS FOR DOs continue to monitor the coronavirus developments closely via the official government websites and we receive daily updates and advice from our Trade Associations—namely the National Outdoor Events Association (NOEA), Event Hire Association (EHA) and Portable Sanitation Europe (PSE) and are following all necessary procedures and protocols to protect our staff and clients during these unprecedented times.
Some of our Clients are still going ahead with their outdoor events in accordance with Government guidelines and health and safety advice whilst others are looking to postpone events to later this summer. Whatever your situation please contact us if you have concerns or would like to discuss the extra measures that can be put in place for your event.
HOW LOOS FOR DOs CAN HELP YOU:
- Isolation units for Business- allowing staff/ departments and customers to to remain in different areas of your premises to minimise the spread of the COVID-19 virus and maximise business continuity..
- Isolation units for home- short term hire of plastic loos are a cost-effective way for families.
- All units will be supplied with ample hand sanitiser or hot water and soap for the duration of the hire.
- We can provide extra supplies of toilet roll, paper hand towels and hand soap/sanitiser in addition to regular deep cleaning and servicing of the units as required.
