Long before Boris Johnson announced the easing of lockdown rules to allow pubs and much of the hospitality industry to reopen on the 4th July, managers, operational directors and key team members had already started answering the many questions posed by the ‘new normal’.
How do we make sure people are social distancing? How do we manage contact tracing for our employees and our customers’ safety? Will we have enough covers to make reopening worthwhile? Will we have enough PPE? How do we prevent an outbreak? And if we have people queuing, and next door have people queuing, and their neighbours have people queuing, then how do we manage it?
At OpsBase we were trying to answer the same questions too but, admittedly, we had an advantage. We were already in a place to answer many of them because this is what we do; make managing health safety processes easy and flexible. These are the solutions that have helped our customers in their COVID situations.
Thanks to the flexibility of OpsBase, clients have a ready-made system to adhere to government guidelines with Customer Registration Checklists.

With simple and efficient to use and ensures peace of mind that your business is protecting your customers and your team whilst keeping data secure. This is something we are seeing play out too, with numerous pubs, where someone with symptoms had been, having to work through their registration lists to call people after the first weekend back.
A huge talking point regarding the reopening of pubs and the hospitality industry has been how to implement social distancing measures to control and prevent the spread of infection. businesses need to implement clear markings and information to keep groups apart and it’s important teams know exactly what they should be doing to ensure the latest COVID secure standards are being met. With OpsBase, protective screens and floor markings can all be checked from within the app, as well as the ability to make sure hygiene protocols are followed.

Health and Safety Regulations Can Quickly Change
Health and safety is heavily regulated and it’s traditionally slow for changes to the law.Once COVID hit all the started to change. Think where we were in the middle of February and where we are now and how the world changed and, in the new normal world of COVID, how it continues to do so. Every week there’s a rule change from the government and that means businesses need to be flexible enough to cope with any COVID secure revisions that might need to be made.
