In response to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the UK, which is causing much concern and confusion to businesses and consumers alike, SPV Group wish to share the following information with our Clients and stakeholders.
We are continuously monitoring the situation and taking the latest advice as issued from the UK Government. We would like to reassure you that the health and wellbeing of our employees, clients, partners and supply chain is our paramount priority and we will continue to take the recommended preventative and containment actions to protect all those affected by our business activities.
In order to ensure that we issue the most up to date guidance for employees and customers, we have established a dedicated Coronovirus team who are closely monitoring the situation and meeting daily to assess, review and discuss required actions.
To help protect our staff and suppliers we are encouraging regular hand washing, and the use of both hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes which have been issued to all employees.
In addition, we are taking steps to ensure the welfare of our employees by instructing those employees who feel ill to stay at home and consult their healthcare providers.
Normal business operations will continue at all UK sites unless advised otherwise. However, where feasible, we will use virtual technology instead of face to face meetings and we will be implementing remote working where required.
These measures are defined by the guidance given by official UK governmental and public health advisory organisations. These include the NHS, Department for Business Energy & Industrial Strategy, Public Health England and the Health & Safety Executive.
To date our service levels have not been negatively affected in any way. However, we are continually monitoring the threat, and should the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continue to escalate, we have put contingency plans in place to mitigate any challenges that may arise.
