Driver Safety Guidelines we are using

  • Upon arrival at each new delivery, drivers/helpers are recommended to put on new disposable gloves in cases of delivery inside a home or workplace or wear work gloves in cases of curbside delivery.
  • Drivers/Helpers to introduce them self at the door and use social distancing practices (minimum 2 Metres). They should politely ask that customer respect the social distance process (minimum 2 metres) for the entire time that they are involved in the delivery process for the safety of the delivery team and the customer.
  • While working in the customers home or place of business, always keep your gloves on, avoid touching your face, eyes and mouth with your hands (gloved or not gloved).
  • Use hand soap and/or sanitizer where available in between deliveries.

GOAL should be a contact free delivery experience for the safety of all involved.
