The Covid-19 outbreak has seen many changes to our personal & professional lives.
WallWalkers is committed to exemplary health and safety standards, of which extend far beyond our rope access methods and on-site works, ensuring the well-being throughout all aspects of our working relationship, for our site team, clients, suppliers and staff.
To help stifle the spread of the virus, we are now only accepting works of the utmost emergency.
- This must be short term (maximum 2 days) and allow for complete isolation due to the nature/location of the works and various control factors we can implement.
- These works will be very select; we will assess the degree of the emergency and respond only to those that justify the call out.
- An example: a task we carried out yesterday saw the removal of a one meter tall stone section from a church tower spirelet, weighing upwards of 60kg and of which had severed from its base, leaning precariously against the tower wall and sure plunge 20 meters on to the public footpath below.
In addition to streamlining only the most necessary of works, we have also moved all computer systems to the homes of our staff, so that they may continue to work in complete isolation.
The situation may change for the better, it may change or the worse, but the safety of our professional family, our clients and the public remains paramount.
WallWalkers may change the above protocol so that we keep in alignment with the latest government guidelines.
My best wishes to all who read. Please stay safe.
