Advice for businesses re-opening

Published

on

AS LOCKDOWN restrictions are expected to ease, businesses and building owners are reminded to check the maintenance of their premises as they re-open.

People who manage or own buildings are being asked to follow the latest advice from the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health and the Health and Safety Executive (CIEH).

Particular attention should be paid to water systems not used during the lockdown to help minimise the risk from Legionella bacteria as they prepare to reopen following the lockdown period.

Legionnaires’ disease can be contracted by breathing in small droplets of water suspended in the air which contain Legionella bacteria. Symptoms include fever, a non-productive cough and pneumonia.

Prevention work includes flushing through cold water systems with fresh mains water as well as increasing the temperature of hot water systems to above 60°C if possible to achieve thermal disinfection of the hot water system.

This should be undertaken as part of a thorough risk assessment and may require other works to be done.

More information is also available from the Health and Safety Executive website.

The Food Standards Agency also has guidance for food businesses re-opening their operations. It includes information relating to food safety issues as well as COVID-19 expectations. The link is: https://www.food.gov.uk/business-guidance/reopening-checklist-for-food-businesses-during-covid-19

Countdown to apply for a slice of £50,000 community fund

Published

on

With just over a week to go until the deadline to apply for a slice of a £50,000 community fund, Wales & West Utilities is urging charities and bodies supporting people affected by the coronavirus pandemic to apply for support.

The gas pipeline and emergency service established the Safe and Warm Fund in response to the crisis to help communities affected by the outbreak with essential funding. Wales & West Utilities has been working hard throughout the pandemic to make sure people are kept safe and warm in their homes and has opened the fund to help others do the same.

Local groups have until 6 July 2020 in which to apply for support.

Wales & West Utilities Chief Executive, Graham Edwards, said:

“The Safe and Warm Fund has been established to directly support organisations working in communities, targeting support at those who need it most.

“We’re encouraging organisations across the area – from food banks to energy efficiency organisations, domestic abuse charities to community transport. Put simply, we want to support those on the frontline and help the most vulnerable people in the community stay safe and warm.”

Organisations and charities can apply for funding between £500 and £5,000. Applicants are encouraged to give details about how the funding will help extend its support to those most in need.

Graham continued:

“One of the most optimistic elements of this pandemic has been seeing the way in which communities have pulled together to support one another and we are hoping that this money will go some way to extending that support.”

Applications will be assessed by a panel consisting of representatives from Wales & West Utilities. For more information on the fund please visit www.wwutilities.co.uk/SafeandWarm.

Wales & West Utilities is also urging people who have received a letter from the NHS advising them to take additional measures to ‘shield’ themselves from Covid19 to consider joining the Priority Service Register (PSR). Joining it allows us energy and utility companies, to look after people who need extra support. It’s free, and you can find out more at www.wwutilities.co.uk/priority

Wales & West Utilities, the gas emergency and pipeline service, brings energy to 7.5m people across the south west of England and Wales. If you smell gas, or suspect the presence of carbon monoxide, call us on 0800 111 999 straight away, and our engineers will be there to help any time of day or night. Before visiting, we’ll ask you to let us know if you or anyone in your household, is experiencing Corona virus symptoms or self-isolating. We’ll still come and help you: but our teams will take some additional precautions to keep us all safe.
