Kitchen repair firm to test engineers for Covid-19 every 28 days

Crystaltech engineer

Warewashing maintenance specialist Crystaltech is implementing a rigorous monthly Covid-19 testing scheme for its entire nationwide engineer workforce.  

All 60 of its engineers will be required to undertake a virus test every 28 days and will then be issued with a Covid-19 photo ID badge to show sensitive healthcare sites when they had the test and when the next one is due for renewal.

The measure comes into place as the company revealed it had been asked to provide support to one of the largest care home providers in the UK.

Managing director, Derek Maher, explained: “Over the last few months our engineers have been working within strict safety guidelines when they have attended particularly sensitive sites including nursing homes, hospitals, public sector sites, supermarkets, MOD and production kitchens.

“Our monthly testing scheme will provide those sites with added assurances that all our engineers are working to the highest safety standards to prioritise the health and safety of those that they come into contact with.”

Crystaltech specialises in delivering a full maintenance and installation service for all makes and models of machine for sites across the UK mainland and the Isle of Wight.

The company has the technical resource to detect the most obscure glass and dishwashing issues, enabling rapid solutions with impressive wash results.
