Houston-based servicing firm Clan Engineering is beginning to bring its staff back from furlough in June, but is taking precautions going forward to ensure its workforce and clients’ safety.
The firm is issuing all of its engineers with a Covid PPE kit to enable them to meet all of the health and safety challenges brought on by this virus.
Furthermore, the technicians will fill out specialist risk assessments before starting all jobs through Clan’s job management system and engineer jobs APP.
Director Kevin Ryan commented: “This will give our staff and clients the confidence to get our jobs done while keeping everyone safe.”
He detailed: “We have been working with a skeleton staff during the past few months due to the coronavirus pandemic in the UK. We have been making sure our NHS, council, care home and supermarket clients have had the same level of cover in place to see them through this challenging time.
“Now it’s looking like we will be starting to bring back some staff from furlough in June to enable us to help our clients start getting their kitchens up and running for the hopeful return of service coming in July and August.”
Clan is also working closely with Edinburgh Council via the main FM contractor to make sure that all of the local authority’s school kitchens will have their annual PPM visit brought forward to the summer holidays of June and July.
Ryan concluded: “This will allow the kitchens to open in the new school term without a hitch, as with the appliances being off for so long there would have been a large amount of reactive call outs all at once and caused the ongoing operation of the kitchens to suffer.”
