Working Safely with COVID-19

The safety of our staff and the public is of the highest priority. As a business we confirm that we have complied with the government's guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19. We have carried out risk assessments and have summarised the control measures below:

  1. Staff and Public Engagement – through regular staff memos, employee council meetings and suggestion boxes: government advice, company policy changes and mental health advice and support is shared and feedback gathered and actioned as necessary. Risk assessments have been shared with all staff and summarised for the public with information shared online and at footpath entry points.
  2. Cleaning and Hygiene - Extra sanitiser stations have been placed around the site with extra cleaning and disinfection of common touch points conducted. Hand washing frequency has been increased above already high standards. Shared tools and equipment is sanitised between users and portable field toilet cleaning frequency increased.
  3. Social Distancing – company adherence to 2m ruling for all work, meetings, communal areas and activities. Screens and fixed pairings are used where face to face work or close work is essential. Non-essential visits have been stopped. Personnel flow has been limited between buildings. Staggered breaks and start times are in place to separate staff mixing. Field shelters are being used to maintain spacing on breaks. Lorry driver facilities have been separated from main staff.
  4. Incident Action Planning – Crisis management meetings are held at least twice per week. A positive case action plan is in place. Contactless medical thermometers used and test booking assistance available to all staff when symptoms develop, or individual concerns arise.

Our risk assessments will be continually reviewed, and controls improved. Further details can be requested through our Contact Us section.
