BFM on hand to help furniture manufacturing get back on track

The British Furniture Manufacturers is signposting the industry to its Environmental, Health and Safety service, to ensure members have access to the latest information to provide Covid-19 secure environments.

The trade body is able to share with its membership the latest guidance and advice, to ensure they are compliant with requirements now, and in the future.

Designed to help members keep their workers safe and their business compliant, the BFM’s Environmental, Health and Safety service – which is headed-up by Alistair Bromhead - is one of the trade body’s most valued member benefits.

Nick Garratt, BFM’s MD said: “Getting back to work presents challenges and a knowledgeable, helping hand can be highly valued at this time.

“We’ve been focusing our efforts to ensure the Environmental, Health and Safety service provides the latest information and support, to help our members get back to business as safely as possible.

“As well as infection prevention information, the service also includes areas such as re-starting operations and recommissioning activity.

“Many of our members are likely to be re-configuring the way they work, and it’s important that they seek advice after a prolonged period of lockdown.”

Features of the Environmental, Health and Safety service include 24/7 access to BFM’s online guidance, handbooks and downloadable templates.

Up-to-date advice through a free telephone helpline and individual on-site support at heavily discounted rates is also available. Members can also opt to receive monthly Environmental, Health and Safety briefings.

The service supports BFM’s continued work in providing the latest information during the pandemic, including Government notifications and employment news, on its dedicated Covid-19 online area http://bfm.org.uk/covid19.html.

Nick added: “The pace of information we need to share has eased, but we are continuing to offer bulletins, and place relevant material on our Covid-19 web area, to keep members informed.”
