JC Events believes many companies are panicking ahead of being able to re-open to install measures which are either unsuitable for their needs or that aren’t required.

And now the company is using its expertise – coupled with specific coronavirus training – to offer packages tailored to individual needs.

It is sending out its own specifically trained COVID-19 officer to view everywhere from doctors’ surgeries to hairdressing salons, who is then devising the ideal package for their specific needs.

Jacqui Chapman, owner of JC Events, said: “With the imminent opening of retail and then beauty and hairdressing salons, everyone wants to ensure their premises is safe.

“But a lot of people aren’t actually sure of what they need and don’t need which is why we have done specific training and we can not only advise them on what is best for them, but we can also provide it all.”

JC Events can provide and install all the necessary equipment required, along with providing the business with a COVID-19 safety merit so their staff and customers can be reassured their employer/company is abiding by all the necessary legislation.

The company, which is known for its eye-catching exhibition stands and signage, has turned its skills into creating complete workplace safety packages – with the option of bespoke packages for anyone with more specific requirements.

JC Events is offering PPE, signage, purpose build protective screens and booths and mobile sanitisation solutions.

Solutions for hairdressers and beauty salons, retails and leisure outlets, doctors’ ‘surgeries and vets and factories, warehouses and offices have been put together, taking into account the challenges each outlet will face.

Jacqui said: “We are just using our existing skills to help companies and businesses get back on their feet again and to help them operate in a safe way.”

JC Events has also created a safe conference and events package which will allow up to 150 guests to gather safely, including tables with Perspex dividers which can be used as soon as larger groups of people are allowed to meet.
