Newrest ups its hygiene focus

Newrest has launched a new range of Self Protective Kits (SPK) hygiene kits for inflight use and stepped up its internal health and hygiene measures in readiness for a resumption of its inflight catering activities.

The new measures include the use of thermographic cameras and reinforced sanitary standards, and are designed to protect employees, airline customers and consumers throughout the network. They include strengthening the existing rules on food safety, personal hygiene and medical control of staff, in order to reduce the risk of spreading the virus responsible for COVID-19 or any other virus. In addition to pre-COVID food safety measures and barrier gestures, the company is now running:
• Hygiene and health screening of employees, subcontractors and suppliers
• Covid-19 training for all staff
• Reorganisation of workstations for physical distance
• Protective face masks required for all
• Additional personal protective equipment required for exposed people
• Increased frequency of staff medical visits per year
• Adapted cleaning and sanitisation measures, including for the vehicles fleet
