Prior to works commencing on site OKEL requests that a representative from within your organisation provides OKEL’s installation team with a local site induction.
The purpose of the induction is to make the engineers fully aware of any local site risks, or procedures they must adhere to whilst working onsite; to include emergency procedures and Covid-19 site specifics.
For premises built prior to the year 2000 there is a potential risk associated with the discovery or disturbance of harmful asbestos fibres particularly in old build materials and heating equipment.
OKEL’s commercial engineers attend regular asbestos awareness training and hold valid asbestos awareness certification so that they can identify whether asbestos is present and to determine its type and conditions so they can take the appropriate precautions and HSE guidance.
Based on the findings within the register OKEL may request that a 3rd party asbestos specialist are called upon to provide specialist advice and guidance.
As the UK continues to face daily challenges because of coronavirus, OKEL’s installation teams continue to follow the most up to date government safety guidance to help minimise the risk of spread
To support this guidance, we request that whilst working on site our engineers have access to washroom facilities to maintain regular hand cleanliness and where possible social distancing is adhered to between the customers own employees and visitors and our installation engineers.
OKEL’s engineers will adhere to any additional site-specific local prevention measures that may have been introduced by our customer to further reduce the risks, such as temperature checks and lateral flow tests on arrival to site.
