Ethics & Covid-19
Ethics and transparency in our supply chain.
PUSHSHOP.COM is powered by PRINT CLEVER.
We always hold ourselves to the highest standards and we just wanted to take a moment to share our current codes for safe practice and the regular external audit processes that our UK apparel facilities are subject to.
COVID-19 - ensuring safe working conditions.
Our facilities in the UK conform to the following best practices to ensure a safe working environment for all staff.
Daily Temperature Checks - A daily log of the body temperatures for all staff is kept.
Social Distancing - Factory floors have been reconfigured to allow a clear two metres between working stations. Where this has not been possible, perspex screens have been built to shield workers. Masks are worn in all common staff areas.
External audits of our apparel supply chain
A process of continual audits ensure that best practices are always maintained. All of the auditing companies are highly respected in their fields and help us at Push ensure that we are always operating to the highest possible standards.
