We live in the trying time of the Coronavirus pandemic. This unrivalled public health crisis caused government institutions in different parts of the world to impose stern restrictions not only on people coming together but as well as for businesses and how they do commerce.
The deadly virus has set the shipping industry into mass hysteria. Because of the dangers brought by COVID-19, major shipping stakeholders have been issuing recommendations and publishing guidelines.
Many sea and airports also have halted their operations until further notice. Families have a feeling of ambiguity on how this health crisis will be dealt with and how it will affect their lives moving forward.
In so far as our business is concerned, establishing our shipping strategy here at Ozkilts lets you ensure – our precious clientele, and everyone who’s involved in the pipeline, are safe amidst the pandemic.
Here at Ozkilts, while all our products remain to be made of 100% cotton, which translates into ultimate comfort for you during any weather, any time, we are also doing our very best to practice minimal contact shipping.
This means that our warehousing is offering minimal touchpoints and strict employee safety precautions during this time. And all of our delivery partners are employing safety mechanisms per government guidelines to keep our customers safe.
We value the trust you place in us, that is why we want to give you an update on the steps we are taking to ensure our safety. This is something we seriously take here at Ozkilts; we are intently listening to the World Health Organisation’s recommendations as we endeavour to safeguard our customers as well as our team members.
Steps We Take to Ensure Your Safety
The world’s leading health organisations’ recommendations are what we are guided by as the world adjusts to the effects of COVID-19 pandemic. We are applying these guidelines to our team members and to the people within the chain. Accordingly, we are practising several actions, including:
- Reinforcing Ozkilts team members’ information about novel coronavirus, its impact on health, as well as sharing resources in keeping the workplace clean and tidy.
- Encouraging team members to practice good hygiene, which includes regular handwashing, wearing a face mask, and practising social distancing.
- Encouraging team members to check on their health regularly, and if they develop flu-like symptoms, they should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Team members will also be asked to stay home for the required number of days to rest and recuperate.
