The MFS approach and guidance for its field-based staff remains unchanged since the height of Covid-19 as we believe that we should support government advice, by adopting a strong social distancing approach.
We have also issued all our engineers with face coverings so that they can comply with local, or client specific, requirements while on site.
In preparation for a phased return to work, we have also prepared each MFS regional/national office with signage, hand sanitiser, social distancing and other control measures to ensure that when staff did return, they are supported with either physical/procedural controls.
This was strengthened through the publication of a brochure, specific to our head office, as well as one giving branch guidance for each of our regional branch heads to implement at their sites as each site is unique. This has been supported with site inductions for each staff member for when they return to the workplace.
Our phased return to work includes continued working from home where practical, the adoption of staff “bubbles” to reduce numbers on site and the potential for spread of infection as well as enhanced cleaning throughout the week and deep cleans each weekend, prior to staff bubble attendance change overs.
