Here at Chaldal we take the safety of our team members and customers very seriously. We would like to inform you that we have taken several steps on our premises and made significant changes to our operations to ensure health and hygiene of our employees as well as our customers during this calamitous time.
We have invested in purchasing items like masks, hand sanitizer, thermal scanners, handwashing stations, disinfecting sprays, additional janitorial items, etc. We have appointed a new Director of Hygiene and Infrastructure and redeployed team members from their regular roles to perform audits at all of our sites to make sure that people are educated and complying with the new normal.
We receive a lot of questions about our lack of use of gloves. We believe that while they may make us feel safe, they do not in any way replace proper hand washing and hygiene. Therefore, our deliverymen and pickers are not mandated to wear gloves.
Here are 5 reasons we think washing hands is better than wearing gloves :
At the end of the day, the single best intervention is excellent hand hygiene- washing your hands as frequently as possible. We have provided sufficient training and information on the benefits of sanitizing hands properly, either using alcohol based rubs or soap and water, to all of our employees. You can rest assured that your groceries are in good, clean hands.
We understand that you trust us to deliver your groceries to your doorstep and are working tirelessly to expand our operations as quickly as possible amidst this national crisis. While your convenience continues to be priority for us, your safety is just as important. Our only request to you is that you remain out of harm's way at home and continue being patient with us.
