OUR RESPONSE TO COVID-19
The situation surrounding COVID-19 is under constant review – Baydale will continue to review all documentation issued to ensure continued compliance and adherence to guidance. At present, until such time as we are advised otherwise, we are operating in line with government and public health guidance and guidance/information provided by individual clients in terms of how we approach jobs and how we manage our day-to-day office operations.
STEPS WE HAVE TAKEN TO DATE
Office Working and Client Meetings
We have allowed staff to adopt, where practicable hybrid working. Our offices continue to be Covid secure with necessary arrangements in place to ensure staff can continue to be able to work safely.
Where possible, meetings are conducted online to maintain contact and support delivery of contracts. Where clients request face to face meetings, these are usually accommodated in line with individual client requirements
Considering the current pandemic, additional control measures are implemented prior to the commencement of works on site and during the delivery phase. Engineers assigned to contracts will only be allowed to work and visit site if they are not showing any underlying COVID-19 symptoms and no other member of their household is self-isolating. Where any employee feels unwell or believes they may have COVID-19 symptoms, they must immediately leave site and follow the relevant guidelines for self-isolation. As far as is reasonably practicable, we encourage fixed-teams or partnering to minimise contact with others.
Engineers will be required to undertake their own dynamic risk assessment (DRA) prior to commencing any works. Where any concerns arise out of the DRA, these will be discussed with the client.
Engineers will be required to observe social distancing rules where possible and ensure that client guidance is always followed. Our engineers have dedicated guidance on how to ensure their health, safety and well-being whilst working on client sites.
