Tex Plastics Covid-19 Safe

Adapting to working safely during coronavirus (COVID-19).

11th January 2021

Injection Moulding 7 Days a Week

Tex Plastics, like many businesses operate more than one type of workplace, and have adapted to make each environment safe to protect our people. From the offices, factories and our fleet of vehicles, we’ve followed the Government advice and applied the guidance to keep people safe.

HSE spot inspection on plastic injection moulding facilities

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) carry out spot inspections where there are coronavirus outbreaks, to check that businesses are Covid-secure. Both Tex Plastics Barnstaple and Tex Plastics Derby injection moulding facilities were subjected to spot inspections by HSE. The spot inspection process involves checking that everyone in the business is aware of the guidance, and advising where necessary on improvements needed to ensure the whole workplace is Covid-secure. The Covid-secure Compliance Audit spot inspection found that both facilities are complying with the latest guidance. On both inspections Tex Plastics were praised for their processes having been declared Covid-secure.

Tex Plastics Covid-19 Safe Practices

Health and safety doesn’t have to be complicated, in fact in most cases it’s common sense.

  • Developed increased cleaning, hand washing and hygiene procedures
  • Maintain 2m social distancing where possible
  • Where people cannot be 2m apart, transmission risk managed with PPE

“We’re really proud of how quickly all our staff adapted to the new requirements of safe working. The Tex Plastics management team have created a Covid-19 Response Group, and meet regularly to discuss the Government advice and applied the guidance to keep people safe during this dynamic crisis.”
