Given the recent changes in covid rules and regulations please read attentively the following guidelines in order to keep yourself and others safe while carrying out a Shepper check.

We strongly encourage you to be respectful of any staff requests (i.e. wearing a mask, sanitising your hands, track & trace), in order for a check to be carried out smoothly.

How to stay safe when doing Shepper checks:

  1. Wash/sanitise your hands;

  2. Keep to social distancing rules;

  3. Avoid touching your face, mouth and eyes;

  4. Don’t go out if you feel unwell or if you’re vulnerable;

  5. Plan and prepare;

  6. Avoid public transport;

  7. Always bring a mask with you and make sure to wear it when required/requested by staff.

We encourage you to follow these recommendations at all times for your safety and that of others:

Keep up to date. Read the most recent advice from an official source such as the World Health Organization, official government website or National Healthcare website such as NHS.

Please do not complete checks if you are required to self isolate for any of the following reasons:

  • You have covid symptoms

  • You have had a positive Covid-19 test

  • NHS Test and Trace instruction

  • Household Covid exposure or symptoms

  • Quarantine requirements

Any other reasons outlined in Govt guidance:

You will not receive a strike if you cancel a check because of any of these reasons.

Wash your hands frequently. Wash your hands with liquid soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol to disinfect your hands. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Cover your cough or sneeze. Use a tissue to cover your cough or sneeze and throw the tissue in the trash, then wash your hands. If you don't have a tissue within reach, cough or sneeze into your elbow.

As always, if you feel uncomfortable picking up a job for safety reasons, you can choose not to accept or cancel the job if you have already accepted or started.
