Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

KPMF remains open and we continue to process orders, produce and ship products and provide support to our distribution network and customers.

KPMF is committed to protecting the health of our colleagues, partners and customers by implementing measures as advised by the Welsh Government and Public Health Wales to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

As required by legislation, KPMF has carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment and controls have been put in place to work safely. This includes promoting good practice for hygiene and regular handwashing along with heightened hygiene protocols, particularly in communal areas.   The importance of following the strategy of Test, Trace, Protect in the workplace is widely communicated to all employees and details of all visitors are collected to enable this process.

Employees are being encouraged to work from home whenever with equipment being provided to enable effective communication and with meetings being held via video conferencing whenever possible.

To comply with the Coronavirus Regulations in Wales, where it is not practicable to work from home, measures have been put in place to ensure a 2m physical distance is maintained where work is being carried out and in communal areas Where is not possible to provide a 2m distance, appropriate measures have been put into place.   Information detailing the measures applied to minimise the exposure to coronavirus is available for anyone entering or working at KPMF.

This is an unprecedented time and we of course continue to monitor the situation, following guidance given by the experts and implementing appropriate measures as they are developed.

At times like these we are sure that you will agree that it is important for us to come together and support each other more than ever, so please stay safe, look after yourself and each other.
