OESAA to provide thousands of ‘We’ve Got You Covered’ workshop packs

By autotech-nic on February 12, 2021

The Original Equipment Suppliers Aftermarket Association (OESAA) will supply 4,000 ‘We’ve Got You Covered’ packs to workshops, to complement its ‘Back on Track’ campaign in July 2020, where 3,000 packs of point of sale and COVID-19 safety-related materials were distributed in a bid to promote a safe environment for technicians and their customers.

At the time, the ‘Back on Track’ initiative reflected the UK government’s ‘return to work’ message and the end of the MoT exemption, meaning more cars were likely to be on the road and workshops were looking after more vehicles than normal.

Workshops and, specifically, technicians are still busy servicing, repairing and testing key worker vehicles and OESAA wants to offer its support by providing more useful safety-related items, which will help workshops continue to be a safe place for technicians to work and for customers to visit.

After consultation with independent workshops, the new pack will include two OESAA-branded 500ml refillable spray bottles, to be filled with surface cleaner, an anti-microbial key tray to help make vehicle handovers contact free, 25 B-pillar stickers to seal and protect the vehicle after servicing and prior to collection, plus 25 flyers for workshops to give to customers containing safety-related information.

OESAA Chairman, Nigel Morgan, said: “Both workshops and their customers have a duty of care to stay a safe distance apart to protect each other, and we hope the introduction of these ‘We’ve Got You Covered’ packs will help them achieve this.”

‘We’ve Got You Covered’ packs are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. To request one, register at
