A message from Jack and Rob
With all the media surrounding Covid-19 we have decided to issue an update to keep in touch and provide you with some useful information.
If you need to speak to us for any reason please do not hesitate to call the office number – 0333 577 0248. You may not be able to speak to who you normally speak to due to some of the team being furloughed, but we are able to continue with supporting you in this difficult time through various members of the team still working.
We are planning to make contact in various ways over the next few weeks including posts, newsletters and phone calls but we are of course happy to hear from you should you need any help.
Please remember to follow our news and insights page to keep up to date. Here you can see updates and announcements regarding many areas of Health and Safety but also advice on Covid-19, RIDDOR, Safe Operating Procedures and working from home in the current climate. We have also posted a Q and A session on Coronavirus that you may find useful.
Our classroom based trainer led training sessions have been postponed for obvious reasons but our eLearning portal is still up and running including a new Covid-19 awareness course. If you would like to discuss training over Zoom or Teams please get in contact.
We have been working closely with the construction industry to design and implement management arrangements for the Coronavirus and protection of workers on construction sites in line with the Governments Safe Operating Procedures in order to return to work safely.
Several of our staff have signed up to the “Your NHS Needs You” volunteer army to help their communities and we have seen some fantastic acts of kindness on social media and locally.
We have been working away on our software project with our developers to come up with the very best system for completing our reports and making these available for updates on line. It’s still early days but the initial testing is underway and we love what we see so far.
We have started completing “virtual site inspections” on some of our projects which obviously has its challenges and limitations but we have really started to appreciate the various apps and media available that helps us keep in touch and connected. Again, please get in touch to discuss these for your project.
We have been working continuously throughout the lock down with the main challenges being uncertainty and lack of control and we are well aware that we share this with most of the world. We are learning and adjusting daily to the challenges for our own business but also supporting our clients in the sensible and practical application of Health and Safety which is still about protecting people and getting them home at the end of the day. Coronavirus is a hazard that like all other hazards, needs to be assessed and controlled and we can help you with this process through our knowledge of safe operating procedures and specific multiple control measures that can be applied in various environments.
We are desperately sad at the news of the many, many deaths being caused by Covid-19 and we would like to offer our thanks and appreciation the NHS and the many other essential workers in these difficult times. We are also wishing anyone recovering from the disease a hasty recovery.
Jack Rumbol & Rob Anderson
