Are your pub and restaurant staff equipped to deal with Covid-19?

Pubs and restaurants have been one of the hardest-hit sectors by the impact of Covid-19. To aid the economic recovery of the pub and restaurant industry. The government is launching the Eat Out to Help Out scheme. 

The Eat Out to Help Out scheme is expected to help pubs and restaurants with a surge in trade throughout August. The promotion permits people to receive a discount of up to 50%, capped at £10 per person when ordering food and soft drinks in participating restaurants and pubs. 

The deduction is made by the eatery, who then claim back the amount discounted from the government. The scheme is valid on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from the 3rd of August to the 31st of August, in areas that are not under local lockdown. 

This is great news for pubs, restaurants, and diners. However, there is a potential for putting workers at an increased risk of catching and spreading Covid-19. If your business is not ready, then worker safety or business disruption will be sure to follow. 

How to prepare for the Eat Out to Help Out scheme 

Do your workers have access to enough hygienically clean workwear to carry out their job safely? 

Hygienically clean workwear, chef jackets, trousers, face masks, and aprons will be in high demand as eating and drinking establishments see an above-normal flow of visitors. It is paramount to have a supplier who can cater to an uplift in supply, as your business footfall changes.
