Working Safely during COVID 19

As part of our commitment to the health and wellbeing of our clients and team, we are working under new operating guidelines in complete compliance with the latest Uganda Government recommendations. Social distancing and the additional health and safety requirements will have a material impact on you, our clients, our staff and how our building operates.

Risk Assessment

The Government Mandated Risk Assessment, produced in line with the specific government guide for offices and contact centres, follows the Uganda Government’s steps to working safely. We recommend you familiarise yourself with this document. Please note that this is an ever-evolving document, as government guidelines, occupancy levels and operating experience influence our approach.

What you need to know before coming to the studios

 

Observing social distancing

  • It is the responsibility of each individual to respect social distancing and adhere to the recommended flow and queuing systems in place at the Studios
  • As our corridors are narrow and in places will have to accommodate two-way people traffic, government recommendation is that everyone wears a mask in these common areas
  • Please be advised that it is each visitor and clients’ responsibility to bring their own mask/PPE to the building for such purposes
  • ‘One person at a time’ entry to all bathrooms, with ‘in-use indicators on every bathroom door and a queuing system outside
  • Studio live room and control room capacity will be significantly reduced to allow for social distancing.
  • Each Studio live room will be laid out to ensure musicians are at least 2m apart for all sessions, with clear queue management to get musicians in and out of the room
  • Air conditioning in the main studio areas of studios 1 and 2 are set to 100% fresh air
