Business as usual

Door and Hardware Federation (DHF) has said that, despite the challenges faced by the Covid-19 pandemic, it is business as usual.

Two weeks ago, the trade association launched its online training facility, and responded to the continuing need to provide online training courses for its members and the industry.

Although not a complete substitute for the face-to-face training courses, initial feedback has been positive, the organisation said.

“We are very pleased with the response to our online training courses which provide knowledge from all elements of our courses, and indeed, we will continue to explore more in-depth ways of offering effective online learning, post-lockdown,” head of commercial operations Patricia Sowsbery-Stevens said.

DHF has initiated its back-to-work phase, with staff members returning to the office, albeit continuing to adhere to social distancing rules. DHF has also reported that a number of its members have returned to their offices this week.
