We have adapted our working practices to ensure that we mitigate the risk by closely following the measures advised by Public Health England and adhering to Site Operating Procedures (SOP) Version 5, published by the Construction Leadership Council to protect the workforce and minimise the risk of spread of infection.
Further to the updated Government guidance issued on 12 May 2020, there will be no immediate change to the working practices currently in place.
All employees who can work from home will continue to do so. Where it is necessary for employees to attend the workplace or client site, we have strict Health & Safety procedures in place, field-based employees are also asked to familiarise themselves with specific client arrangements on site. Our Health & Safety team are constantly reviewing the measures in place to ensure that they follow current Government guidance.
We remain committed to providing the superior service and support that our clients have come to expect of our company throughout these challenging times and we will communicate further updates as the Government restrictions change.
