Keeping you safe during lockdown

keeping safe during lockdown

For many businesses the introduction of another national lockdown earlier this week was a bitter pill to swallow.

It’s disheartening to know that so many businesses have had to close their doors once again as the country battles to halt the latest rise in Coronavirus cases.

However, we are aware that many of our colleagues working on critical national infrastructure projects or in industries such as construction and manufacturing are continuing to travel to their workplaces to help keep the country operating. At Acorn Safety Services we fall into this bracket and are still offering our support to clients across a wide variety of industries.

Whilst it is imperative that we all do everything we can to reduce the risk of transmitting Coronavirus, business owners must also not lose sight of the other responsibilities they have to keep their employees safe.

So, our team at Acorn Safety Services is continuing to visit construction sites and workplaces to support our clients with all their Health and Safety needs, in line with the current Government guidelines.

Regardless of your requirements – whether you need CDM Client, Principal Designer or Principal Contractor services, construction site health and safety inspections, fire risk assessments or health and safety training – we can help you to remain safe during the current lockdown.

Businesses which are currently working from home, or that have had to shut their doors temporarily, may also want to use this time to make sure they are on top of their Health and Safety obligations for when they return to their workplaces once more.

We know that many bosses don’t relish the idea of getting to grips with their Health and Safety requirements. When you’re trying to run your own business the thought of tackling complex Health and Safety laws can bring to mind the image of being swallowed up in never-ending reams of red tape. Thankfully, we can help businesses to manage their responsibilities through our retained health and safety service and take away any health and safety nightmares they have been suffering.

Firms using our comprehensive service can breathe easy knowing our team’s expertise and wealth of knowledge will protect them from the risk of potential health and safety breaches and their associated dangers, fines and even prison sentences. Firms get all this support and it comes without the expense of employing a full-time member of staff.

So, if you need health and safety advice during this latest lockdown visit or contact us at or on 01604 930380.
