dBD Communications answers Cabinet Office call
It’s not every day that dBD Communications is invited to prepare a film for the Cabinet Office to share with the business community, but this week we did.
When we were asked to show how we’ve adapted as a business to the coronavirus, we were keen to talk about the steps we have put in place. Hopefully, the series of Cabinet Office films will help give other businesses the confidence to safely return to work.
Of course, creating a film ourselves in ‘socially-distanced’ times wasn’t without its challenges, but we’re pleased with the final finish.
Our MD, David O’Connell was keen to express how dBD Communications has adapted to keep staff and customers safe.
As one of the largest providers of duplex communication solutions in the UK, we’ve remained operational throughout the lockdown. This is so that our clients in rail engineering and other industries can carry out essential work.
10-step cleaning and hygiene process
To maintain the equipment that our clients are using, we introduced a strict cleaning process. This is to ensure when equipment is handed back over to the next operative, it is free from virus and contamination.
Our 10-step cleaning process has been implemented in our own workshop facilities to make sure that any equipment from a goods-in point of view is safely handled (with the appropriate PPE) and thoroughly cleaned for dispatch.
This means that we have changed how we supply rental equipment. None of our rental assets are supplied with mic muffs or ear covers. We recommend, in addition to cleaning each asset before each use, that new ones are fitted.
We have also shared our 10-step cleaning guidance with clients and have introduced a managed service option for customers requiring on-site cleaning and servicing of equipment.
Looking to the future
We couldn’t be prouder of how our staff have responded to the challenge.
We have introduced clearly marked areas for social distancing, lone working areas, staggered start times and where possible, enabled remote working. Being able to quickly yet safely, adapt to the situation has allowed us to be there for our clients when they need us.
It has meant changing the way that we operate but as we see more of our clients return to work, we’re able to focus on the things we love - innovation and new technology solutions.
