COVID-19 Update – 14th May 2020
The Government has issued new guidance for tradespeople working in people’s homes, following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Sunday 10th May
The Glass and Glazing Federation has now issued clarifications on what the updated guidance means for tradespeople carrying out work in people’s homes, and is as follows:
The Government guidance for tradespeople working in people’s homes has now changed for work being carried out in England only, and is no longer stipulating that only essential work can be undertaken, but instead, the new Guidance is asking companies to adopt a risk-based approach.
The new Guidance now allows standard work to go ahead, provided that it is safe to do so, Public Health England (PHE) guidelines are being followed (social distancing, hygiene and cleaning routines etc.), a risk assessment has been undertaken, and mitigating measures to reduce the risks have been introduced.
A large number of Plan-it suppliers have already safely restarted production and have been busy working, albeit with skeleton crews initially to start making deliveries with the intention of being in full manufacture by mid June.
Following the latest Government advice and feedback from our suppliers over the past few days, Plan-It hopefully intends to be operational from the 1st June 2020 to start taking orders and dealing with customer enquiries.
For the past few weeks, we have put together cohesive risk assessments and return to work action plans, these include controlled measures on social distancing, PPE, hygiene standards and travel.
We will continue to update and improve upon them, ready for when we reopen, as we are sure that these measures will be required for quite some time.
For further updates, please check our website regularly or visit our Twitter and Facebook pages.
We appreciate your understanding and support at what is STILL a challenging time for us all.
We thank all essential key workers for their selfless efforts, they are our national heroes.
Stay Alert and Stay Positive
