We are open for business, and here if you need us!

Engineering staff

MFS engineering staff may visit multiple sites in a day and therefore have contact with multiple people. In the interest of safeguarding our staff, customer’s staff and others, we have provided the following guidance to our engineers to support the advice provided by government agencies and assist in minimising the risk of spreading infection.

On customer sites, or when working remotely:

  • When contacting a site, or on arrival at site, ask the customer’s representative if there are any specific COVID – 19 concerns on site.
  • Do not make physical contact i.e. shaking hands with other people.
  • Do not share equipment i.e. phones, pen etc.
  • Wherever possible, avoid contact with people whilst on site, or where this isn’t practical, minimise the duration of contact and maintain the recommended 2 m’s.
  • Use nitrile disposable gloves to prevent contact with surfaces commonly touched by others i.e. door handles, refrigeration unit control pads etc and wash/clean your hands when the gloves are removed.

On our own sites:

  • Avoid attending an MFS site, unless absolutely necessary for work.
  • Keep visits to the minimum time required and avoid unnecessary group gatherings.
  • Do not make physical contact i.e. shaking hands with other people.
  • Do not share equipment i.e. phones, pen etc.

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is a rapidly changing situation from a public health perspective, and we are committed to keeping you informed and to taking care of you as both valued MFS members of staff or customers.

Stay safe and well. Thank you for your continued support.
