What this statement is all about.

In these extraordinary times of a global virus pandemic we need to protect our suppliers, customers, employees and families. As we work on properties and collect supplies from various sources we will at some point come into contact with another person or persons during our working day.

As a result of this we have decided to change the way in which we work in order to protect all parties.

Most of the properties we work on are vacant or our clients are not present during the working day.

Key points for conducting ourselves during a working day and when meeting with clients and potential clients:

  • We will reassure you that we have been given instructions on the precautions we need to take with regard to the spread of COVid19.


  • We will check by asking if anyone in the household has developed a new cough or has a fever, (a temperature of 38.7oC) If it is confirmed that this is the case and anyone in the household is self-isolating we will not visit until advised by yourselves it is safe to do so. We are required to do this to comply with the current legislation.


  • Before approaching the property we will put on disposable nitrile gloves. If gloves are not available we will wash our hands at any opportunity. We will bring our own hand sanitiser. We will also wear a face mask rated at PM2.5. Social distancing is very important.


  • On entering the property we will advise you that it is safer for you to maintain a distance of at least 2 metres from us and request that this is maintained for the duration of our visit.



  • Once we have completed our work, we will wipe down and sanitise any surfaces using isopropyl alcohol and disposable wipes. wipe down any surfaces we have come into contact with and dispose of the of the wipe in a separate rubbish bag.


  • We will also wipe the surfaces of any tools and equipment used.


  • Once we have left site we will remove our gloves and dispose of them in the same rubbish bag as the wipes.



  • Crucially, if we experience any symptoms of the coronavirus we will self-isolate immediately which under current government guidelines applies to the whole family. We will also inform you of this.


  • Test and trace.

We are all carrying out self-testing on a twice weekly basis on Monday and Friday mornings. Our test kits are the lateral flow variety provided by Public Health England NHS test and trace. If any of our operatives test positive we will follow the latest guidelines for self-isolation as well as informing the NHS using their test and trace process.

We will continue to review and revise this method statement and welcome any suggestions from our suppliers and customers as to how these arrangements can be improved.
