The Importance of Health and Safety for Customers Amid the Covid-19 Pandemic

Health and safety for customers should always be top priority for any trades person. This is particularly important currently. It is important that we do what we can to put our customers minds at rest and be understanding of the levels of fear and anxiety that so many are experiencing.

Health and Safety Advice for Small Businesses

As a self-employed locksmith I take health and safety measures very seriously. It has always been a priority for me to maintain health and immunity by;

  • Eating healthily
  • Getting Fresh Air
  • Exercising regularly
  • Keeping stress levels in check
  • Not over working
  • Getting enough sleep

Making health and well-being a priority for all IKS Locksmiths employees allows us to keep productivity and efficiency at optimum levels and to ensure customers are satisfied with the service they receive.

Side Effects of the Coronavirus on Locksmiths

It is hard to predict what the long term affects of the virus will be on different businesses. What I have noticed as an individual is the extreme reactions produced by uncertainty and fear. Ranging from wanting to capitalise on the situation to an outpouring of empathy and care to others in the community. Where I live there is a great sense of working together as a community to provide supporty to the vulnerable and on the other hand, I have heard stories about others taking advantage of people who are feeling anxious and looking for answers.

Take extra care with security and who you are opening the door to. If you do need an emergency locksmith, please choose with care. If you need an MLA approved emergency locksmith in North London, we are operating a 24/7 service, call us.
