SUPERMARKET Lidl will now provide safety visors to its Dumbarton workers.

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, and comes after the announcement that stores will be fitted with safety screens at checkouts.

The new visors will help create a barrier between staff and customers during conversation at a safe distance, and are made to be worn multiple times as well as being easy to wipe down and disinfect after wear.

Christian Härtnagel, CEO at Lidl GB, said: “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.”
