Guide to Gym
at The Loft
Ensuring the Safety of our Staff, Members and their Guests
Our extensive measures ensure the safety of club members, guests, and visitors. Perspex screens are in use at the airstream and in the bar and other PPE, including masks and gloves where social distancing measures are not always possible. We also have a separate risk assessment and training module that all our team have completed prior to working.
The Housekeeping team will be starting early enough to prepare the gym without needing to come close to any guests. They all will work separately and managed with staggered starting times and break times to clean the gym at regular intervals. Sanitising stations and disinfectant wipes will be provided for guest use.
Our team are fully aware of the importance of cleanliness throughout their time at the club and home. All work areas and contact points are cleaned and sanitised regularly. Anyone showing symptoms relating to COVID – 19 will not be working at the club.
We kindly ask that these rules are adhered to at all times in order to ensure the safety of both fellow members and the team that are here to look after you.
