Covid 19 – Working Safely

Working safely for you, our clients, and our teams during Covid-19

It is important during this time to continue to adhere to the guidance we are all being given, helping us to remain safe and reduce the spread of Covid-19. This also applies to how we work and how our office will operate during this time.

We have reviewed our ‘safer working together’ processes and are working to create a safe environment for you, our clients, and the teams in the offices.

Our office doors will, for the time being, remain closed to avoid unscheduled ‘walk-ins’, and during the current lockdown (Jan 2021) we will not be offering face to face appointments and to ensure safety we will be working in the following way:

Face to Face Meetings

  • Whilst we are in the current lockdown we will not be doing face to face appointments but can offer a variety of alternatives to ensure your legal requirements are met.
  • We will encourage virtual appointments via telephone, email or video call where we can

Reception Areas and Meeting Rooms

  • Clear screens have been installed in reception areas and social distancing markers in the meeting rooms
  • When we resume face to face appointments you will be asked to use hand sanitiser as you enter the office
  • Only 1 client (or couple who live in the same household) will be allowed in reception areas at any one time.

Offices and Staff

  • We have cleaning, handwashing, sanitising and hygiene procedures in line with guidance, these will apply to all staff, clients and other visitors
  • We have taken all reasonable steps to maintain social distancing in the workplace
  • We will work with employees who are a high or moderate risk to enable them to manage their physical and mental well being and work commitments
  • We are taking reasonable steps to help people work from home if they are unable to work in the office.

We have carried out a Covid-19 risk assessment, a copy of which you can read here HSE risk-assessment Covid19 2021-01-04

Measures and the government guidelines are changing all the time so this information and our risk assessment will be updated regularly, so please check back here for the latest status.
