Following the recent Government announcement on new Covid measures from 12th April 2021, the approach to lockdown still varies across England, Scotland and Wales, but in all areas of our nationwide operations we will continue to work on construction sites in accordance with the Covid secure guidelines.
The Government has been clear that construction work should continue and sites should remain open across the UK. We understand the need to keep providing and maintaining the electrical infrastructure that our hospitals, businesses and people depend on, so we are committed to following the published guidelines from the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) to maintain their Site Operating Procedures, keeping our customers and employees safe during the pandemic.
To ensure the construction industry operates safely the CLC has developed a range of guidance relating to social distancing, use of PPE and face coverings, the safe operation of site canteens, the safe operation of builders merchants, the use of public and private transport to work, and the use of temporary accommodation for workers, amongst other important matters, all of which can be found on their website https://www.constructionleadershipcouncil.co.uk/
Further to this, we are registered for the government's Work Place Testing scheme, and will continue the diligent monitoring of our employees both on site and in our offices alongside strict hygiene measures to identify and minimise the risks.
