HEALTH & SAFETY PROTOCOL- COVID19
The health, safety and welfare of Clearvision Imagery staff and our customers is of paramount
importance to us. Clearvision Imagery have prepared the following H&S Covid-19 Protocol for
guidance to the best of the information that is available at this time, to ensure a safe re-open to the Studio in due course – (date to be announced).
1. Studio cleaning policy
Before and after every studio session the studio is deep cleaned by using disinfectant / isopropyl
alcohol and/or steam cleaning. All surfaces that could be touched and all props used are sanitised.
The studio will be aired thoroughly to minimise any droplets in the air.
2. Time between sessions
At least half an hour will be left between sessions to enable a deep clean of all surfaces and
accessories to take place and to ensure there is no contact between customers arriving and leaving
3. Sick policy
Customers will be required to disclose if anyone coming to the session has had a fever or any other
symptoms such as coughs, sickness or vomiting or has been in contact with anyone displaying
Covid-19 symptoms, suspected of having Covid-19 or has had a Covid-19 positive test result at
least 24 hours before their session. Appointments will be re-arranged, at no cost.
4. Self monitoring
All photographers / staff and customers will be required to monitor their temperatures and health
before coming into the studio. Disposable gloves and masks will be available in the studio and these
should be used as deemed necessary and appropriate.
5. Hand washing
All photographers and staff will be required to thoroughly wash their hands for a minimum of 20
seconds before all sessions. Appropriate sanitising hand gels will be made available and customers
requested to use these upon arrival at the studio.
6. Social distancing
All photographers and staff agree that every effort will be made to keep the 2m social distancing
advice at all times where possible both in the studio and on location. This includes shaking hands
and moving / adjusting hair or clothes. Parents may be asked to help move their children and babies
as requested by the photographer. During the portrait session instructions to the clients will be given
from the distance stipulated by and in accordance with the social distancing rules.
Due to the restrictions imposed by social distancing, it may not be appropriate to offer usual studio
sessions and poses, particularly with regard to newborn and maternity sessions. To carry out these
types of sessions where social distancing may not be possible due to safety, a bespoke policy will be
put in place between the photographer and their customer (see point 7).
All studios should operate an appointment only booking system to ensure no contact between
customers and minimise risk to photographers and staff by ensuring that the measures on this
protocol are conveyed to customers before their appointments.
7. Risk Assessment
All studios will be required to establish a written Covid-19 Risk Assessment with regard to
distancing and reasonable measures guidance, this can be made available to the customer on
8. 2m Distancing
All studios to advise customers of 2m distancing can be maintained during their time at the Studio.
Floor markings and signs will be visible at all times.
Unfortunately for the time being we will not be able to offer refreshments.
