Fairhurst are continuing to follow the UK & devolved Governments, World Health Organisation, NHS and our own internal guidance and procedures to protect the health and wellbeing of our employees and their families, our clients, business contacts and suppliers.
Employees are working from home wherever they can. Our design and advice services have remained uninterrupted throughout the COVID-19 epidemic, with employees able to work effectively and efficiently from home following the successful implementation of our Business Continuity Plan when offices closed in March 2020.
All employees have full access to our IT systems, offering home-workers full and secure access to our project file servers, our email system and specialist software licensing. Our project teams remain in regular dialogue, sharing information remotely and continuing to provide a coordinated service both internally and with fellow project professionals.
Essential business related travel, site attendance etc. is being monitored through an internal approvals process managed by our Health & Safety Team to ensure that all travel and visits are thoroughly risk assessed.
All business to business and project team interaction is being promoted through collaborative distance communication platforms, such as Microsoft Teams, multi-party conference calls etc.
Fairhurst has taken, and will continue to take, all practical steps to protect our employees and their families, our clients, business contacts and suppliers, whilst ensuring business continuity through intelligent application of our established IT systems.
