It is a sad fact of life that companies such as WLS will, for the foreseeable future, have to operate in a new normal world where all our activities have to be carried out with the impact of COVID-19 in mind.
Whilst we are determined to complete projects on time, our number one priority will always be to protect our people and customers from the risk of catching the disease. Rising to the challenge, we have put measures in place to ensure that wherever they are deployed, our engineers are able to work in a safe environment. To achieve this, we have liaised closely with customers to ensure that on-site best practice are always adhered to so that the risk of COVID-19 spreading is minimised. We are of course also strictly complying with government directives and taking on-board the advice offered by the World Health Organisation.
PPE & Best Practice
An essential requirement at all locations where WLS engineers are working, is that everyone must be wearing personal protective equipment, (PPE), such as face masks and gloves. Our project managers constantly check that this rule is being complied with and that surfaces which our colleagues might come into contact with, are regularly disinfected.
Most sites where we are contracted to install electronic security systems are equipped with body temperature checking systems, and entrances and exits are separated for crowd control purposes. A simple rule of instructing colleagues to work back-to-back and to avoid facing each other, is also helping minimise the risk of someone passing the disease onto someone else.
To ensure our engineers have peace of mind in knowing that we are doing whatever is necessary to keep them safe, our project managers are tasked with keeping them constantly informed on current Health & Safety regulations and advice.
Most importantly, we will never be complacent about the safety of our people, which is why we are continually looking at ways we can further enhance our COVID-19 related procedures.
