Physical Digital® – Covid-19

Business operation during Covid-19 pandemic

June 2021 – Business Operation

As we continue to operate within the parameters of the Government Guidelines for the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic, our team here at Physical Digital continue to do all we can to operate as safely as possible, to protect both our customers and our staff. Throughout this pandemic we have implemented a number of changes to our working practises to comply with the most up-to-date government guidelines. This has enabled us to continue to offer both in-house and on-site 3D scanning services to our customers.

Prior to visiting any customer site, our Engineers will complete a Coronavirus – Site Working risk assessment to confirm that safe working conditions can be assured. The site engineer will confirm all agreed actions have been implemented by the customer to mitigate the risk before starting work on site. We expect all our customers to act responsibly and help maintain a safe working environment for all. Should our customers require us to complete a Coronavirus health check document or their own risk assessment documents before attending site, we would be happy to do so. Please discuss this with our staff at the time of booking in any 3D Scanning services.

In order to protect our customers and colleagues, all visitors to our site are required to complete a Coronavirus health questionnaire no more than 48 hours before visiting. All visitors will also be required to have their temperature taken before entering the site and should be wearing a mask that covers both the nose and mouth.

All deliveries to site, including items sent for 3D scanning, are placed in quarantine for 24 hours. This should be factored into any timescales when discussing potential projects with our team.

Should you wish to discuss any aspects of your project in relation to the restrictions in place for Covid-19, please do give us a call on 01483 750200 or email where a member of our team would be happy to help.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their continued support.
