In the context of the latest lockdown and COVID-19 related restrictions, I wanted to take this opportunity to update all of ASW Property Services’ colleagues, customers and those in our supply chain on what we are doing as a business and how we are continuing to work and operate safely.
We have been monitoring the impact that COVID-19 is having on our business closely and following government advice. As such, we remain open and working and we continue to support our clients on construction sites across the UK while taking all precautions to keep our staff and customers safe.
During the first lockdown in March 2020, the construction industry received guidance from the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy that advised that individuals working in construction can continue to travel to their place of work. In partnership with the Construction Leadership Group, the government also developed new Site Operating Procedures (SOP), which aligned with guidance from Public Health England.
At ASW, we have diligently followed these and implemented them into all our working practices. We have also taken many other precautions to keep staff safe including implementing strict social distancing protocols at work and getting the entire premises deep cleaned by specialists on a regular basis.
We deep clean and sanitise our offices and communal areas on a regular basis using specialist equipment to ensure any traces of infection are dealt with quickly, reducing the chances of spreading of the virus.
I would like to stress that we are doing everything we can to keep everyone safe. But within those parameters, it is also very much business as usual here at ASW.
I once again thank all of our staff, clients, suppliers and other stakeholders for their dedication and understanding in such challenging times as we navigate this challenge together. I hope everyone working with us remains safe, healthy and I encourage you all to continue to follow appropriate guidance issued by the government.
Anthony Thomas, Managing Director, ASW Property Services
