UK AFTERMARKET COMBINES TO PRODUCE ‘RESTART’ GUIDE

UK aftermarket trade bodies have combined to produce a guide for businesses on how to operate safely during the current crisis.

The best-practice guidance covers the entire aftermarket sector, including workshops, warehouses, mobile operations and parts distributors. It covers every aspect of their operations, from safely communicating with customers and colleagues to social distancing, sanitisation and hygiene, and collection/delivery of vehicles from vulnerable owners. It is designed to complement government advice and help the aftermarket sector demonstrate safe practices for employees and customers across all points of interaction. It comes as vehicle mileages start to climb and the sector calls for an end to the six-month MOT extension.

The guidance has been written by representatives of the IAAF, IMI and SMMT as well as the Garage Equipment Association (GEA). You can read it here
