Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) is to commence a controlled return to work across all four of its business divisions from Monday 27th April 2020, after receiving safe working guidance.
Earlier this month, the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) formed a task force to provide a focal point for co-ordinating the building industry response to Covid-19 and to facilitate communication between the industry and government. This task force has now taken government and Public Health England guidelines on safe working practices during the pandemic and developed site operating procedures designed to protect workers.
This collaborative procedure has given PTSG the clear direction it needs, as a business, to operate safely. Engineers from across the Group will go through an induction for new operating procedures and risk assessments. The inductions will be undertaken electronically, via a secure web link; an electronic sign-in will enable each individual’s progress to be tracked, including the length of time they have spent reviewing the documentation. Only when this process is complete and a certificate has been issued, will they commence working.
PTSG’s business restart process will be managed around customer requirements, listening to its people and ensuring safe working environments. The Group will work with customers to make sure their compliance requirements are delivered by PTSG’s frontline team, whilst those who can work from home will continue to do so.
PTSG has consistently maintained throughout this public health emergency that its priority is to protect its people from Covid-19, follow all government advice in tackling the virus, and ensure sustainable business continuity. There is absolute confidence that these new working practices will strike the right balance.
Paul Teasdale, PTSG’s Chief Executive, said: “I would like to thank all our customers, supply chain and people for their patience and cooperation over the last few weeks. This has been the biggest challenge we could have imagined and we are pleased to be making a controlled return to work, adhering to guidance from the government, senior health officials and the CLC. I would ask customers to please co-ordinate any questions and requirements through your normal point of contact here at PTSG.”
