How to prevent while carrying passengers in your taxi or private hire vehicle

Taking Precautions:

  1. wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  2. always wash your hands when you get home or into work
  3. use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  4. cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  5. put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
  6. try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell

Cleaning your vehicles:

  1. consider increasing the frequency of your vehicle cleaning regime
  2. focus on the following areas of the vehicles which receive the most regular physical contact:
  3. Door handles
  4. Handrails
  5. Head rests
  6. Seat grab handles
  7. Seat backs
  8. Seat belts and buckles
  9. please bear in mind that using too much water/liquid whilst cleaning may make interiors damp and increase ability of germs to grow
  10. ensure wet floors and ramps are dry before passengers board
