With the recent announcement of the National Lockdown, we thought it was prudent to re-evaluate our protocols and position. After an internal review with the board and leadership team we can advise that we remain committed to live, and up and coming projects. In doing so will be taking the new COVID guidelines very seriously. We have taken the following steps to ensure we can continue to safely operate:
- All key supply and contract partners have been contacted to ascertain available materials and resource, and we are happy to confirm that we have been reassured that the only impact we may see is slightly longer lead-times, this will be reviewed daily.
- We have reviewed our health & safety / COVID site protocols internally and have increased and added precautions given the nature of the virus’s new variant. We can confirm that we have decided to log temperatures of ALL site operatives daily, whilst ensuring the use of masks and sanitising hands is made compulsory.
- Please also note we are intending wherever possible to keep site teams for a particular project in a bubble group, with this, if we have more than one case directly on site, we will be shutting the project down for 10 days and sending all site teams home to isolate to contain any further spread of the virus.
The office team will be working mainly from home. We have already created bubble groups covering all departments keeping the office open with a skelton staff. This will ensure that we can maintain and service all enquiries of any nature. During lockdown we will keeping physical contact between office and site staff to the very minimum.
If you wish to have a copy of our health and safety and COVID protocol, please contact Andrew – firstname.lastname@example.org, and he would be more than happy to share and discuss if required.
We hope you stay safe and well, and understand we are taking the recent government announcement very seriously, and believe we can help protect the NHS with the actions we are proposing. We will also be constantly reviewing these protocols.
