Covid-19: A label to reassure your customers and employees and to facilitate the resumption of your activity

Since May 11th, 2020, your business has been able or is about to reopen its doors to your customers and employees. In the context of the unprecedented health crisis we are facing, it is imperative to reassure them of your ability to welcome them under sufficient security conditions. You have already put in place your activity resumption plan which involves:

  • Deploying appropriate prevention measures to control risks, particularly related to Covid-19.
  • Ensuring the proper functioning of the equipment necessary for the resumption.
  • Adapting work organization and movement conditions within the workplace
  • Training employees in new behaviors and communicating transparently with them so that they themselves are secure and social dialogue is serene and constructive.

Since the start of the crisis and to face these new challenges in a context of economic emergency, the Apave teams have worked on defining a new reference frame, adapted to your constraints and your action priorities and in compliance with current regulations: the Safe & Clean label.

Apave is by your side and supports you with its new #GetReady system, practical advice to effectively resume your activity while controlling sanitary risks, and in particular with the Safe & Clean labeling for establishments open to the public.

We wanted to offer quality recognition to companies and, in particular, to establishments open to the public, in order to reassure their customers and their employees, about the preventive measures put in place to face any Covid-19 risk. This label commits you to a process of formalizing your prevention procedures based on an audit grid detailing the operational systems and actions to be implemented.

This approach covers your activity resumption plan, compliance with barrier gestures, specific cleaning and hygiene rules, new protection processes during any contact (movement, payment, suppliers, etc.), communication of key indicators, as part of your sector activity.

We challenge and enhance your recovery operating methods thanks to our expertise and our good practices benchmarks implemented since the start of the crisis.

We verify:

  • The respect for commitments.
  • The implementation of methods of proof.
  • The compliance with the rules defined during an on-site audit which is the subject of a specific report.

In return, we award you the Safe & Clean label and its communication kit (stickers, posters) allowing you to fully reassure your customers and employees.

If you prefer a more adapted approach to help you meet your challenges, we can also co-construct a specific recognition system (Charter or Label) adapted to your company or your profession.
