Step 4 of 5 - Fault Details
COVID-19 POLICY – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
Please inform us immediately on 01293 612950 or, by sending an email to email@example.com if you or any member of your household are:-
Shielding due to Coronavirus
Displaying ANY symptoms of Coronavirus
Isolating due to Coronavirus
If this is the case, then the maintenance visit will be postponed until such time as it is mutually safe for us to carry this out.
The following policies have been reproduced and interpreted from current UK Government guidance and will be updated periodically as required. Please note that this is guidance and not law, and will be adopted, wherever possible, to ensure both your safety and the safety of all of our operatives.
It is currently thought that the level of transmission of Covid-19 increases with the duration of exposure. Therefore, all of our operatives have been instructed to work efficiently and swiftly (of course whilst still maintaining safe working practices) to minimise the time spent on site and therefore reducing the risk of exposure between parties.
This is the most important policy that has been adopted. All operative/s have been clearly instructed to only perform works in a socially distanced manner. This means that you must be at least two metres away from our operative/s at all times whilst on site. It is wiser for you to remain in another room during the maintenance visit or, if convenient, vacate the property whilst the operative is on site. Please note that, whilst all operatives have been clearly instructed to maintain this social distancing policy, whilst on site it is YOUR responsibility to ensure that your personal safety is maintained. Should you be uncomfortable with the social distancing being displayed by the operative/s during the site visit, then it is YOUR responsibility to pause the visit and bring this to their attention immediately. Should you feel uncomfortable doing this, then please telephone us immediately on 01293 612950 and we will remedy the situation immediately and discreetly.
Prior to the maintenance visit, it is YOUR responsibility to open all windows possible in the working area to allow maximum ventilation, thus reducing the risk of transmission.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)
As well as the usual PPE used in performance of maintenance tasks, the operative/s have also been instructed in the use of, and issued with, the following items of PPE specifically in response to the Covid-19 pandemic:-
These items should be worn, as a matter of course, by all operatives whilst in your property and when safe to do so. It must be further added that the wearing of a face covering whilst in a property is a government guideline and not a law. The wearing of a face covering is a courtesy to you, and will be adopted at all times whilst safe to do so. Please note that, whilst all operatives have been clearly instructed to maintain this PPE policy, whilst on site it is YOUR responsibility to ensure that your personal safety is maintained. Should you be uncomfortable with the PPE policy being displayed by the operative/s during the site visit, then it is YOUR responsibility to pause the visit and to bring this to their attention immediately. Should you feel uncomfortable doing this, then please telephone us immediately on 01293 612950 and we will remedy the situation immediately and discreetly.
For the safety of our operatives, we would also ask you to wear an appropriate face covering for the duration of the maintenance visit. This is to mitigate the risk that, should either party breach the social distancing policy, by an unforeseen circumstance or accident, the face covering worn by both parties reduces the risk to each party. Should you not have one to hand, then please ask our operative, who will supply one free of charge. Please note that, we reserve the right not to perform the site visit should you refuse to wear an adequate face covering for the duration of the visit if requested to do so by our operative.
All operatives have been issued with hand sanitising solution. Prior to entering your property, our operatives have been instructed to apply hand sanitiser thoroughly to their hands in order to minimise the risk of transmission. Should you feel it necessary, our operatives have been advised that it is perfectly acceptable for you to request that they sanitise their hands again, in your presence, so that you may be assured that this practice has been adopted. During the maintenance visit, all operatives have been instructed to sanitise their hands, on a regular basis, every twenty minutes.
CLEANING OF SURFACES
All of our operatives have been issued with anti-bacterial surface wipes to wipe down any surfaces which they have made contact with. However, it is YOUR responsibility to thoroughly clean down all surfaces following the maintenance visit to your personal satisfaction.
