Libra Speciality Chemicals: News

Keeping our employees and visitors safe during Covid-19


At Libra Speciality Chemicals we have worked uninterrupted through the lockdown since March as we manufacture essential sanitisers and surfactants for cleansing products  to help the fight against Covid-19.

In doing so, we rapidly implemented a stringent hygiene regime and social distancing in our offices and factories, as well as arranging home working for as many employees as possible.

The government has caught up with new Covid-19 workplace regulations and we have added these to our ongoing measures to ensure best practice.

These measures are in place to help prevent and reduce transmission amongst employees to keep them safe at work, and to maintain a healthy business operation and a healthy work environment.

Our priorities are apparent: to secure the wellbeing of our employees, customers, suppliers, business partners and other stakeholders by responding to the outbreak and taking appropriate actions, whilst continuing to provide the best service for our customers.

Our Covid-19 prevention in the workplace response identifies all areas and job tasks to help reduce the spread of COVID-19:

  • Practice routine cleaning and disinfection, enclosed spaces (offices and laboratory areas) are cleaned and sanitised every day before employees arrive at work
  • Actively encouraging sick employees to stay at home, employees who have symptoms should notify their line manager and self-isolate at home
  • Social distancing markers are placed every 2m throughout the offices and warehouse spaces
  • Office desks are distanced 2m apart
  • Hand sanitiser is available at the foyer of the building, all employees entering the building must sanitise their hands before entering and leaving the building
  • Hand sanitiser is also available in every room, so that employees can sanitise their hands regularly
  • Videoconferencing and teleconferencing are encouraged instead of face-to-face meetings
  • Posters are put up in all office areas to remind employees of hand hygiene
  • Face masks are available for all employees but are not compulsory. However, the transport department must wear face masks when communicating with off-site drivers
  • Hand shaking is prohibited
  • Employees must not share’ phones, desks, offices, or other work tools and equipment, unless thoroughly sanitised
  • Maintaining flexible policies for childcare, and vulnerable employees with work from home measures are implemented

During these unprecedented times, we would like to reassure our customers that we have taken all the necessary measures to safely provide continued supply of speciality chemicals and contract & toll services for our customers. Our team is available 8am-5pm Monday – Friday to answer any of your questions or enquiries by email or phone.

All hand sanitiser used at Libra is manufactured on site to our very exacting formulations. Please contact us if you would like Libra to manufacture hand sanitiser for your organisation.
