Staying Safe Onsite

This video shares how we’re staying safe onsite by implementing additional safety controls, PPE and social distancing measures.

Safety Measures

Following a period of greatly reduced, or paused activity on our construction sites due to COVID-19 restrictions, and in accordance with current guidance from the Construction Leadership Council and UK Government, we have now returned to site to continue work on providing much-needed homes for local residents.

We have ensured that we have the right PPE (personal protective equipment) for all our operational staff, and that these are available wherever work is being carried out. Our employees will also be offered the option of being tested for COVID-19 if they or family members show symptoms of COVID-19.

At each location, strict social distancing will be observed, with revised travel and transport arrangements and extra supervision for staff. Furthermore, all our sites will benefit from additional wash stations, intensive cleaning regimes and extra inspections.

These measures will be continually reviewed and updated in keeping with the latest Government advice and safety guidance. Our commitment to our people and the wider community remains our top priority.

We are incredibly grateful for our teams, partners, suppliers and local residents for their support in helping get back to work in a safe, controlled and responsible way.

We understand that you may have some questions and we’ve done our best to answer them here.
