New safety visors will be distributed to store staff as part of Lidl’s increased measures to protect colleagues and customers
Today, Lidl announces it will provide protective safety visors in all its stores in Great Britain. The new safety measure will see thousands of visors rolled out in stores across the country, as part of its ongoing commitment to ensure the safety of colleagues and customers.
The safety visors will help create a barrier between staff and customers during conversation at a safe distance. Made to be worn multiple times, they are easy to wipe down and disinfect after wear, simple to use and designed with comfort in mind.
Christian Härtnagel, CEO at Lidl GB, commented: “We’re committed to ensuring our colleagues and customers feel safe, which is why we’re providing all stores here in Great Britain with safety visors.”
“We are eternally grateful to all of our store teams who are working hard every day to support their communities. And, we would once again like to thank customers for their consideration during this very challenging time.”
The news follows the supermarket’s announcement on Tuesday that it will be installing thousands of safety screens at checkouts across the country to protect store colleagues and customers as well as creating up to 2,500 new store jobs to provide necessary additional support to its workforce and customers.
