Hope you’re all fit and well, what an absolute terrible start to the year we’ve all had, we hope you’re on track to getting back to some kind of normality.
With a lot of guidance and safety measures put into place, Tricon have been fortunate to have been able to work through the lockdown period both in the office and on site.
On site we adhered to the safety procedures laid down by the main contractors, and the advice from the Government and the Construction Leadership Council.
We have a well ventilated office, each employee has their own 2 metre space, some employees decided to work from home, we carry out regular risk assessments, had training in Covid-19 Pandemic Awareness Course, installed sanitising stations, changed our taps to automatic, and keeping both office and site staff completely up to date with news and updates.
We are looking forward to the future, and hopeful the Construction Industry will get back to normal, and wish you luck for the future.
