The Government condition falls into five distinct categories: requiring a respective risk assessment, with the results communicated; clear cleaning, handwashing and hygiene procedures in place; facilitating home working where feasible; maintaining social distancing on site; and a management plan to mitigate the transmission risk.
The risk assessment, performed by the Head of QSHE and the controls developed by a cross-functional team has highlighted the need for a redesigned office layout and reduction in the permitted number of people in the office at any one time.
This allows two-Metre distance between people and reduces the need for one-way movement paths.
The Signage and controls around the welfare and toilets has also been considered and additional signage and controls will be implemented to permit their use.
The robust measures will continue to ensure County Broadband staff and anyone who we come into contact with throughout our business stay as safe as possible at all times.
An enhanced cleaning routine and clear guidance to the all on limiting the risk of infection on areas such as meeting governance, site access and travel.
As part of the new measures to control the population density on site at any one time all entry and exit points reviewed and reconfigured where necessary to disperse the volume of people.
Our field teams have all been briefed and have specific controls developed to help them fulfil the requirements of this risk assessment
The assessment is reviewed regularly (at least monthly) in line with UK legislation and UK Government guidance. Any changes in the working environment will also facilitate a review of this assessment
