Ian Webb Engineering – Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement

With the recent outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the subsequent government advice regarding social distancing, we understand it is important to outline our approach during this period across a number of areas, these include, employee hygiene practice and social distancing, planned maintenance on customer assets, call out facility and our procedure in the event of a national lockdown.

Our position is outlined below on each area.

Employee Hygiene Practice & Social Distancing

Due to the nature of our servicing work and the environment we regularly work within, our employees spend a small percentage of their working day in close proximity to others, but during the short time we are in close contact we will adhere to the following steps:

  1. Ensure employees maintain a minimum 2 metre distance for any other member of the public or our customers during any exchange that is deemed necessary due to health and safety requirements and industry standards
  2. Regularly maintain good hygiene practice by washing hands as often as possible wherever convenient, especially after contact with other people and areas of regular use by other people. Also, sneezing into elbow and avoiding touching of your face
  3. Any requirement for signing of documentation by the customer shall be temporarily halted to avoid any unnecessary contact
  4. PPE guidelines are followed, with engineers always wearing disposable latex gloves during work along with standard

If you encounter any employee of Ian Webb Engineering not closely following the above guidance please inform us on 01296 771000.
