COVID 19 Update

Posted on 19th July 2021

On Monday 19th July 2021 there was a Government easing of coronavirus restrictions.

Although not a legal requirement the Government has advised that face coverings should be worn in “crowded and enclosed spaces, such as public transport, when people, mixing with strangers or those that they do not normally mix with” and there also remains advice on the need for social distancing and minimising contact.

We have an obligation to protect the health of all our staff and to limit operational risk. We also have an obligation to our clients to meet deadlines. Like all those in construction and related activities in a vulnerable position, this set against a background of world-beating rises in COVID cases and those self-isolating.

As an employer we must take all reasonable measures to look after the health of all those in our workplace. Social distancing, face coverings and hygiene remain the best prevention measures, as well as regular flow-through testing.

For the above reasons we will not be lifting of our current COVID restrictions at Soils Ltd, both in offices or sites from Monday 19th July 2021 and we will continue to work to our COVID Procedures.

Our approach is in line with the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) advice, who have encouraged consistency of approach across the Construction Industry, with COVID measures being retained currently
