Safe. Secure. Prepared.
Dealing with Covid-19 at Virtual HSE

Our team at Virtual HSE has been fundamental in our Health & Safety response for the Virtual family of companies, which includes Virtual HSE and Virtual FM.

And as you’d expect from us, we’ve a robust risk assessment and appropriate measures in place in order to deal with Covid-19.

Our priority is the safety and well-being of our people, our clients and everyone we work with.

We’re fully compliant with current Government guidelines.

Where possible, our team is working from home. If they’ve not had the means to do that, we’ve provided the equipment and technology so they can. And we’ll continue to work remotely for as long as necessary.

There are times when some of our team need to be on site to help deliver services to clients, or to help clients deliver services to the public. For these team members we are doing what we can to keep their risk of exposure to the absolute minimum.

We’ve introduced a series of measures to do that, which include:

  • Strict social distancing.
  • Creating ‘Sanitation Stations’.
  • Introducing signage to remind and reinforce social distancing and personal hygiene.
  • Additional cleaning, especially in high-touch areas.
  • Installing protective perspex screens in customer-facing areas and offices.
  • Reconfiguring office layouts to maximise the space between desks.
  • Holding meetings remotely, using Zoom or Microsoft Teams, rather than in person.
  • Providing additional PPE (gloves, face masks and visors) for anyone who needs it.
  • Working out-of-hours when we can, so that cleaning and other teams have less contact with the public.
  • Staggered shift times to reduce bottlenecks and make it easier to social distance.

We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and official guidance changes, in order to keep our staff informed, advised and – most importantly – safe.
