The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has had a significant impact across the globe where we have seen great tragedy unfold, with no immediate light at the end of the tunnel. We are working with all stakeholders to maintain professional services to our customers however we recognise this is not a ‘business as usual’ event.
Our values are at the core of everything we do and we take this pandemic and associated Government advice seriously. We aim to do all we can to limit the spread of COVID-19 and will continue to monitor and comply with the latest government instructions in the various countries we operate in.
We have introduced measures to safeguard our people, including Point of Work Risk Assessment for all activities, providing appropriate PPE and hygiene facilities, regular safety bulletins, creating new ways of working.
We have allowed as many employees as possible to work from home, reduced unnecessary travel and gatherings of people. Most, if not all, meetings are via video conference and we are managing a ‘social distance’ policy throughout the business.
We continue to listen to our customers and the concerns of our employees, we have provided regular internal business updates and are implementing temporary working arrangements to accommodate the needs of our people.
We give thanks to our dedicated employees, suppliers as well as customers for their understanding during these unprecedented challenges ahead.
