The Finance and Leasing Association (FLA) has collaborated with other automotive trade bodies to publish an industry Covid-19 guidance for businesses operating in the vehicle collection, delivery, distribution, storage and technical services sectors.
The government published its own guidelines last month, to help employers, employees and the self-employed to understand how to work safely during the coronavirus pandemic and to ensure workplaces are as safe as possible.
Updates were then made to the guidance on 25 May after further consultation was undertaken with industry members on the preparations required for re-opening.
The aim of this new document “is therefore to consolidate into one place what the new Covid-19 guidelines mean for vehicle collections, delivery, distribution, storage and technical services. It also suggests some additional best practice options which should assist operators in ensuring a high level of safety and compliance”.
The FLA collaborated with the BVRLA, the National Association of Motor Auctions (NAMA), and the Vehicle Remarketing Association (VRA) for the guidance.
