What’s happening on site now?
Our sites remain open with our Site Managers making sure everyone is following the latest version of the Construction Leadership Council‘s Site Operating Procedures, which were issued on 7th January. As for the rest of the Open team we have remote access to all our systems and processes so it’s business as usual despite the necessary restrictions in place across the UK.
Our Project Managers and Site Managers are working together to ensure that each of our sites is set up to enable safe systems of work. Every project has clear signage reminding everyone of the need to wear masks, to keep their distance and to follow one way systems in stairwells and elsewhere. We have plenty of hand washing and sanitising facilities on site, with regular cleaning routines, and welfare areas where people can take breaks at a safe distance from each other.
Our office is open but we’ve limited the number of people in at any one time so everyone can maintain a safe distance. With increased ventilation and regular cleaning of all surfaces and touch points, we’re making sure that the office is safe as possible for those that do need to come in.
