Keeping our colleagues and communities safe
We want to make sure that we continue to serve you at a time when you may need us most. Ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of our colleagues and community is a priority for us. We have completed risk assessments at each of the Society’s premises in line with government guidance, Working Safely During Covid-19, published 11th May 2020.
We have involved colleagues and consulted with Aegis (our Union) throughout the risk assessment process and are pleased to confirm that with the mitigating actions we have in place, we consider there to be no high or extreme risks outstanding.
We have taken all reasonable steps to help people to work from home and where they can’t, we are maintaining social distancing within the workplace. This is supported by appropriate cleaning, handwashing and hygiene procedures.
We will assess the risk of any future changes as lockdown eases, and in response to subsequent revisions in government guidance, to ensure that we continue to provide a safe working environment for both our colleagues and customers.
