COVID-19 TAKING PRECAUTIONS KEEPS WORKSHOPS OPEN

Upholding transport services during the Coronavirus crisis is essential for society to ensure deliveries of necessary goods, not least food and medical supplies. Keeping workshops open is therefore crucial in this situation.

Throughout the world, these workshops are taking measures to protect workshop personnel from being infected as well as ensuring the safety of drivers. Generally, workshops are practicing social distancing, maintaining a distance between colleagues.

Drivers have similarly been encouraged to maintain a distance from workshop staff when arriving with their vehicles. Keys are dropped in a safe way, that are disinfected prior to being handled by service technicians. When entering cabs, seats, dashboard, steering wheels and other points of contact are covered with plastic sheeting to avoid infection. While this is being carried out, service technicians wear gloves and facemasks, where possible.

Equally important is ensuring the continued health of drivers as they pick up vehicles from workshops. Scania in Denmark, for example, disinfects steering wheel, gearshift, handbrake, dashboard, seat belts, door handles and keys before returning vehicles to drivers.
