Can’t see the wood for the trees?

News of a third national lockdown has hit hard. Anxiety runs high about our physical health, our jobs, our economy, our mental health, our children’s education, our National Health Service, our government and our lives.

There’s a lot to worry about.

We at T Jefford’s are not immune to worry, and we take our responsibilities to help minimise the spread of the coronavirus to our employees, customers and suppliers very seriously. However, we intend to carry on operating, and providing the fantastic service you are used to, working within the current government guidelines.

So, what are we doing to help minimise the spread of infection?

✓ We have carried out COVID-19 risk assessments and shared the results with the people who work for us

✓ We have cleaning, handwashing, hygiene, social distancing and working procedures in line with guidance

✓ In most instances we are able to provide estimates from photos and measurements to reduce the number of garden or site visits required

✓ We have put structures in place so that our office staff are able to work from home

✓ Prior to starting work, we will obtain confirmation from the households of domestic gardens that they are COVID-19 free, and that the commercial sites we work on are COVID-compliant

✓ For the duration of the lockdown we will only be working on sites where there is independent access, so we will have no reason to enter premises

✓ We are keeping records compliant with NHS Test and Trace
