AMA outlines vehicle repair virus procedures

Despite the day-by-day uncertainty of the Covid-19 situation, links in the trucking supply chain continue to advise proponents and customers on the status of their services.

Listed vehicle aftercare and accessories firm AMA Group says its repair sites are still open for bookings and that it is utilising best-practice hygiene measures and thorough cleaning procedures to protect its team and customers.

It outlines its workplace adjustments in a communique.

"Continuing to be a vital link in the supply chain of the ‘essential services’ of transport and logistics is paramount," AMA heavy vehicle division CEO Darren Wales says.

"Our strong advice to supplier representatives is that travel to AMA sites should be temporarily avoided unless absolutely necessary.

"Communication between our businesses can essentially be managed by phone, email or online via teams.

"If you are required to be onsite, please seek approval from a member of our team prior to visiting."

AMA Group took over Wales Bus and Truck Repairs last year

Wales adds the entire group is prioritising the safety and health of its workers, customers and suppliers through proactive steps to implement policies and advice provided by the Commonwealth Department of Health.

This includes:

  • all vehicles arriving at, and departing from, repair sites are sanitised prior to hand back, including disinfecting hard surfaces such as the steering wheel, gear knob, hand brake and door handles;
  • technicians disinfect their hands prior to working on vehicles
  • a strict ‘no-touch’ policy is in place until further notice (staff/customers/suppliers should refrain from any handshaking).
