We are continually reviewing guidance issued by Government and Health Authorities to ensure the safety of our employees and staff and to minimise any additional potential risks to our operations posed by Covid-19. We issue this statement as part of the periodic review of our processes and procedures in relation to the Covid-19 Pandemic.
On the 28th May, the Government announced that the restrictions first introduced on the 23rd March would be amended. The policy of ‘Stay Alert, Control the Virus, Save Lives’ remains in place, however there will be a relaxation of some restrictions related to people’s personal interactions and the opening of some businesses that had previously been closed.
Since the 23rd March, our essential staff have been working on the UK’s highways, ensuing that the roads remain safe and operational for our Keyworkers. We will continue with this work, ensuring the same for the businesses that will drive the Nation’s economy forward.
All workstreams that fall under ETL Highways, ETL Connections and ETL Training now operate as ‘business as usual’ in accordance with Government advice for the Construction, Business and Transport Sectors (see links below), advice directly from Government Ministers on media channels and advice from Trade Associations.
Since the 19th March we have adhered to the advice issued by the Government and Health Authorities and will continue to do so.
The updated guidance also states that people should ‘Work from home if you can’. During the pandemic, we have strengthened the ability of our office-based staff to work remotely, through the introduction of new work practices and more importantly, investment in new technologies. This on-going investment means our staff that are currently home based, will be able to continue to work remotely, supporting our on-site activities.
Our Managers and Supervisors can be contacted in the usual way via email and cell phones, or through the Head Office landline.
We remain keenly committed to providing a high-quality service. Our new working arrangements have worked well during the restrictions imposed during this Pandemic, with our own staff, and just as importantly our clients staying supportive and flexible in this most challenging of 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’.
