We are monitoring the situation on a continual basis and are following Government guidelines in-terms of:
Our key aim is to protect the health and well-being of our colleagues while maintaining our ability to serve our clients.
We have already put in place policies to remove social interaction wherever we can and will use alternative communication channels with our business contacts to ensure, as far as possible, that we maintain our client commitment. We have implemented movement restrictions within our premises together with increased hygiene facilities and protocols.
Where practical we have already implemented home working for members of the team and are employing available technologies to keep our workflow moving.
Our Total Access Database allows us to issue and receive our engineer job-cards electronically and these are then available to be accessed via our secure on-line client portal. We will work with clients wherever possible to remove face to face interaction during site-visits while maintaining complete commitment to Health & Safety procedures and client protocols. As is currently the case, our Total Access Database aims to provide complete transparency for our clients and the work undertaken.
We consider that we have a well-established, robust and diverse supply chain, both locally, nationally and internationally. We carry a substantial and unrivalled stock of machinery, parts and consumables. A wide range of equipment across our product portfolio is available from stock for emergency hire.
Our current engineer situation is that we have no unplanned personnel absences and we remain confident that with careful management and an excellent breadth of skill and experience, we can fully meet current demands.
Whilst we are experiencing unprecedented circumstances, our Management Team has been in place for the larger part of our 28 years in business and has faced previous challenges. As before, we will continue to take a prudent and responsible approach to our business stewardship.
