As the demand for tyres in all sectors begins to increase, Michelin has announced it is supplying more than 2,000 tyre dealerships across Ireland and the UK with COVID-19 safety kits, the aim of which is to help implement standardised hygiene practices for employees and customers.
The free packs have begun shipping to all independent Michelin Quality Centre, Michelin Exelagri and Michelin Service Pro dealers, which support Michelin customers across the car, agricultural and commercial vehicle sectors respectively.
Each pack contains comprehensive tips and advice to help businesses operate as safely as possible during the pandemic, including specific guidelines for workplace and vehicle hygiene, documented cleaning schedules, and advice for interacting safely with customers. The packs also include printed customer welcome notices, social distancing posters, social distancing floor stickers, hand wash guidelines, plus various hygiene products including masks and alcohol hand and surface sanitiser.
Commenting, Chris Smith, Managing Director of Michelin UK, says: “There are increasingly more vehicles on the road, and it’s essential people remember to drive safe, and stay safe. We want customers to feel confident they can visit their local Michelin Quality Centre when they need new tyres; it’s important no one neglects vehicle safety.”
Commenting on the content of the packs, he adds: “All of the advice and printed materials are specific to a tyre dealership. We wanted to provide our dealer partners with everything they need to ensure staff feel protected, motivated and able to contribute to creating a safe workplace for themselves and their customers.”
