We are very pleased to confirm that all Cawood Scientific sites have been able to remain operational and open for business throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to date.
We continue to evaluate our COVID-19 contingency plan and to follow Government guidance as it is announced. So far, the actions we have implemented to minimise as best as possible the impact of the pandemic appear to be working and staff absence due to self-isolation has been kept at manageable numbers.
We have complied with the Government’s guidance for staying COVID-19 secure at work. We have carried out a risk assessment for COVID-19 at every Cawood Scientific site and implemented control measures based on the following principles:
• Exclusion of non-essential and vulnerable personnel from site.
• Facilitating home working for staff where practicable.
• Social distancing.
• Cleaning and hygiene arrangements.
• Management of staff with COVID-19 symptoms or who are self-isolating due to household members with symptoms.
We have shared the results of these risk assessments with our staff, who remain our most valued asset. We will continue to keep our customers updated as we move towards what we hope will be easier times for us all.
