Read the latest Government Guidance. Your life and your job security may depend upon it.
The Covid-19 Stay Safe Posters:
All our employees are expected to observe the 1m plus safe distancing rule, or wear face coverings when they cannot avoid working closer. Our clients request our operatives must always wear face-coverings when they enter or work within the communal areas of their properties. It is also a professional courtesy to wear face coverings whenever you attend business meetings at client's or supplier's premises, or receive guests at the unit. The experts continue to believe Covid transmission is contact driven. This means washing your hands and sterilising your work areas will interrupt the face-to-hand-to-surface-to-hand-to-face cycle the virus seems depend upon to cross-infect.
As expected the Covid transmission rate is rising as we head towards winter. To mitigate the increasing risk, we expect every employee to comply with our Covid-safe working protocols. We also remind our staff that if they, or any member of their household, experience any of the Covid-19 symptoms, they must self-isolate and follow the latest official guidance.
Whatever personal views you may hold about the Covid guidance, complying with our safe working policies is mandatory. Any employee who thinks otherwise, will face swift disciplinary action for gross misconduct, and may lose their job.
There are two additional covid-19 documents you must be aware of:
1. A new Covid-19 short-form RAM that must be completed for EVERY response and planned job by every operative before they begin work.
2. A Covid-19 Safe System of Works (SSOW) that must be read by every operative before undertaking any work.
Please do not forget all the other H&S safe-working practices must still be complied with when at work. This includes ensuring that a Site File has been prepared and remains on site for the duration of the project. Remember, all the usual construction site risks may still be present, and they represent no less a risk to compromising safety and continuing health just because Covid-19 features so heavily in how we live our lives at the moment. As cringe-worthy as many feel it to be, Hands - Face - Space is one mantra that is probably worth observing.
