Drives and Automation Ltd COVID-19 Guidance

During the current outbreak of the Coronavirus, the health and well being of our staff, customers and visitors is paramount. We are going to be following the UK Government and Public Health England guidance ( ) and have implemented the following steps to help within our business:

  1. Where possible all meetings should take place online, using Skype, Facetime and Microsoft teams as appropriate.
  2. Introduction of a strict no hand shake policy.
  3. Staff have been advised to increase the frequency of hand washing and to wash their hands on entering and leaving a customer’s workplace.
  4. Maintenance of a safety distance of approximately 2 meters from our customers when on site.
  5. Staff with a new cough or high temperature are to work from home as per government guidelines and will not be attending customer sites.

As a responsible business we are taking the COVID-19 threat seriously and we are taking all reasonable measures to prepare for and mitigate the risk of COVID-19 to our team members, our customers and our business.

Our offices are now open, but we are only accepting visitors by prior arrangement and we ask that all visitors consider their potential exposure to COVID and if they think they have been subject to a risk of infection to contact us to re-arrange their visit. Visitors are requested to maintain a social distance of 2m whilst in the building.

 With the exception of the above we are continuing to operate as normal, and will be attending breakdowns, carrying out installation work and retro fits, and offering module sales as normal.
