At Southern Tank Services Ltd, we are taking the Coronavirus very seriously. We have a duty of care to our employees, clients and the wider public to protect our activity from spreading the virus or exposing anyone to any unnecessary risks.
With the Government learning quickly about the best way to handle this situation, we will update our policy to reflect these changes and comply with current guidelines.
At the time of writing this, we are operating all services including installation work, regular services, and product order fulfillment as usual. All our staff is fully aware of the social distancing recommendations and their responsibility to self-isolate should a member of their close social group have any symptoms including a dry cough and/or temperature over 37.8C.
We are fortunate enough that our office allows at least 2m distance between each team member, this has been made possible due to some team members working from home.
We have instructed our field engineers, who work 95% of the day outside, to respect the 2m distance between themselves and other people, both clients and other members of the public they may encounter.
Nitrile work gloves are provided and to be worn at all times and changed frequently. Hand washing is recommended where possible. Hand sanitizer is provided for each team.
Our engineers will not enter an enclosed space with another person where at all possible. If you are in self-isolation, please let our office know this, so we may communicate via telephone or through a closed window.
Working outdoors has a low risk as the Coronavirus is transmitted via the respiratory system, so avoiding people and enclosed spaces reduces risk. In line with government and NHS instructions, hand washing and not touching your face, particularly mouth, nose, and eyes is very important.
Please bear with us, as we may be operating under stressful conditions with a knock-on effect from our supply chain, also coping as best they can. We will be working to the same high standards our clients have come to expect. Our aim is to keep all our employees on 100% pay until this is no longer in our control. We will continue to trade as best we can until such time the authorities advise us not to.
If you have any concerns, please feel free to speak to a member of our team on 01722714514.
