New App for assessing readiness to resume after COVID-19 shutdowns

As more businesses return to work in the UK after closing premises during the Coronavirus pandemic, Bureau Veritas has launched a new app to support organisations in assessing their readiness to resume operations safely.

I-check from Bureau Veritas, which is already in operation successfully across Europe, is now available to UK businesses across the hospitality, retail, hotel sectors and SME market as well as those with employees returning to work in offices. It reflects all the latest government guidelines and regulations, intended to minimise exposure to COVID-19.

The free app enables users to complete an industry-specific questionnaire and receive a ‘readiness score’, along with feedback and recommendations on how to proceed with the necessary safety and hygiene requirements. It also gives the option to contact Bureau Veritas, a global leader in testing, inspection and certification services, for a wide range of safety and compliance solutions.

Victoria Shah, sector lead hospitality for Bureau Veritas said: ““I-check is part of our comprehensive package of support to help businesses navigate the challenges they face in light of COVID-19. It has been developed quickly in light of the ever-changing situation and thanks to the agility of our developer partners CGI, but already comes with a robust reputation from almost 1,000 users.

“We have already successfully rolled out our Restart Your Business assurance solution, which provides independent assurance of safety and compliance measures to give customers and staff complete peace of mind.

“Now, the app provides an opportunity for businesses to self-assess their readiness to resume operations and make sure they have the necessary precautions and processes in place.”

To download I-check from Bureau Veritas, all you need to do is search I-check Bureau Veritas into your app store on your Apple or Android device.
