Covid-19

Due to the current Covid-19 situation, whilst carrying out our work, we ensure that certain conditions are adhered to in order to reduce any risks. Risk and Method statements are be prepared in order to ensure that any potential hazards are eliminated. The controls covered in the risk assessment will include hand washing, cleaning and disinfecting objects and surfaces that are touched regularly, wearing gloves where appropriate and social distancing by reducing the number of persons in any work area to comply with the 2-metre gap. The method statement will include questions such as are operatives avoiding public transport as advised by Government? How will social distancing be managed at the gate for signing in/out? Is hot water and soap readily available on site? Are breaks being staggered? Is there an adequate supply of RPE and PPE readily available for all staff? We hope that by following both the Risk and Method statements, we will be able to eliminate any potential Covid 19 cases.
