Coronavirus update: staying covid secure

Since the start of the pandemic, we have complied with the government’s guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19. Following the lifting of government restrictions on 19th July 2021, we have kept our working safely guidance in place. We have a Pandemic Contingecy Team (PCT) who oversee this.

Here’s an overview of what we have done to keep our working spaces covid secure, and the guidance that is still in place:

  • We have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment and shared the results with our colleagues
  • We have cleaning, handwashing, and hygiene procedures in line with guidance
  • We have taken all reasonable steps to help people work from home
  • We have taken all reasonable steps to maintain a 2m distance in the workplace
  • Where people cannot be 2m apart, we have done everything practical to manage transmission risk
  • We have provided workplace collect testing for those unable to work from home
