24th March 2020
As the situation caused by coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, we are continually reviewing guidance issued by government health authorities to ensure the safety of our employees and minimise any potential risks to our operations.
With the additional restrictions placed by the Government last night we have again reviewed all our work streams and decided that all activities associated with our Training Division are ‘non-essential’ and will be suspended until 20th April 2020.
All other workstreams that fall under ETL Highways and ETL Connections remain ‘business as usual’ in accordance with Government advice for the Construction and Transport Sectors (see links below), advice directly from Government Ministers on media channels and advice from Trade Associations.
It is crucial that our teams continue to maintain electrical equipment on our highways so that all key workers can continue to do their jobs in these difficult and challenging times.
As 24th March, all of our office-based workforce will be working from home, while our on- site operatives will be in the field, complying with all social distancing advice – which is relayed and refreshed to them cyclically.
Our office telephone line has been diverted to our remote call centre where all communication can be co-ordinated, and our Managers and Supervisors can be contacted in the usual way via email and cell phones.
We remain passionately committed to continuing to provide our high-quality service and our new working arrangements have worked well for the first few days of this changeover for our business, this is helped by the understanding that our clients have shown in these challenging times.
More information is available on our website at www.electricaltesting.co.uk and we will issue further updates should circumstances alter our current position of ‘Business as usual’.
