How COVID-19 Affects Our Operations

September 2020

The recent announcements from the Government have been a clear reminder that COVID-19 is still very present in our lives and that we must all stay focused on limiting the spread as much as we can. We know that safety remains a key priority for our customers and we want to reassure you that we will continue to do all we can to keep you and our engineers safe.

When an engineer visits your property there are several precautions he/she will take to keep you safe and prevent further spread of the virus.

Each engineer has been instructed to use face masks and hand sanitiser whether visiting agents offices or working in our customers’ homes. They will wash their hands whenever possible and use protective gloves in line with government guidelines.

We also ask that tenants and house owners maintain social distancing during the engineers visit and support us in our efforts in beating this virus.

Every engineer has one objective when they visit you – to keep you safe. In our new normal that means ensuring your home is both gas safe or electrically compliant and now COVid 19 free.

Our company directors, managers and employees are all committed to working in a COVID secure environment whether it is your home or the offices in which you or we work.
