Gulf Business Foundation, Dubai (GBF) is committed to ensuring the health, safety and welfare of all our employees, customers and other visitors to our premises, our offices and our warehouses.

Over recent months, we have considered available Government guidance to establish how we can ensure our premises are safe for all our employees, customers and other visitors. As part of this, we have conducted an assessment of the COVID-19 related risks arising out of or in connection with our work environment and put measures in place to mitigate them. As a responsible company, we have also chosen to put in place a range of other measures that we consider appropriate in these circumstances.

Our Risk Management team will continue to review arrangements regularly to ensure that they reflect current Government advice and other changing circumstances. Also, GBF will continue to consult and work with our employees and other organisations to safeguard all those who work in or visit our locations.

GBF will endeavour to follow all of the applicable guidance. Where it is not reasonably practicable to implement a recommendation in the guidance, as part of our risk assessment process, we will implement an equally effective measure.

Our starting point is that all of our sites have completed a risk assessment specifically to address the risks of COVID-19 arising from our undertaking.

While GBF has prepared a number of risk assessments and guidance documents to support safe functioning, there are a number of control measures which are implemented on our premises. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Training will be provided to all staff using a combination of video calls, briefings and guidance.
  • We have taken all reasonable steps to help people work from home where it’s practicable for their role.
  • Only essential staff and contractors are to attend GBF premises.
  • Increased frequency of general and surface cleaning in all premises.
  • Regular handwashing to be promoted, and handwashing and sanitiser stations will be made available.
  • All reasonable efforts are to be taken to comply with the social distancing guidelines. We have engaged social distance champions to advise/remind staff and customers about the need to maintain a 2m distance.
  • Where practicable we have reconfigured our workspace to assist in social distancing.
  • Access into lifts and toilets will be restricted.
