COVID-19 Health and Safety

How we operate safely in people’s homes COVID-19

No work will be carried out in a household which is isolating because one or more family members has symptoms or where an individual has been advised to shield – unless it is to remedy a direct risk to the safety of the household.

When working in a household where somebody is clinically vulnerable, but has not been asked to shield, for example, the home of someone over 70, prior arrangements should be made with vulnerable people to avoid any face-to-face contact, for example, when answering the door.

We will be particularly strict about handwashing, coughing and sneezing hygiene, such as covering our nose and mouth and disposing of single-use tissues.

We will communicate with households prior to arrival, and on arrival, to ensure the household understands the social distancing and hygiene measures that should be followed once work has commenced.

We will:

Frequent cleaning of objects and surfaces that are touched regularly, using your usual cleaning products.

Arrange methods of safely disposing waste with the householder.

Remove all waste and belongings from the work area at the end of a job.

Wear appropriate PPE.

Keep to two metre social distancing rules.
