Leading contractor Higgins has announced the re-opening of the majority of its sites from Monday 4th May in accordance with strict Government guidelines.
The contractor has been working closely with clients and its supply chain over recent weeks to understand the challenges they faced to get back on site and has put in place procedures to meet the guidelines.
Steve Leakey, Managing Director of Higgins said, “Health and Safety remains our top priority and we have developed strict protocols which allow a graduated start on site for most of our projects whilst ensuring social distancing measures are adhered to.
“We will be utilising meetings rooms as additional welfare facilities and encouraging staff to travel by car rather than on public transport. Increased cleaning and hygiene facilities have been introduced across all sites as well as video inductions for staff which will minimise social interaction.”
Higgins’ Head Office will remain closed but the majority of office based staff and Directors will continue to work from home but will be contactable as usual and its After Sales team will be responding to emergency call out works only unless other arrangements have been made.
