Keeping our customers safe:

The health and well-being of our staff and customers is our top priority. We are following government and medical advice to put safety first when assisting our customers.

As well as following all official guidance, we’re regularly updating our employees with health and safety advice, while putting in place necessary working arrangements alongside travel and site restrictions.

These measures include:

• Added extra hygiene measures and increased cleaning across all of our sites and providing extra hand sanitiser gels and wipes for all customer-facing teams
• Distancing measures are also being undertaken at all locations
• We’ve implemented additional hygiene and distancing measures in our businesses, including providing extra hand sanitiser gels and wipes, to help keep our staff and customers safe while we provide product and service information, and support
• Customers who require a trade counter service will be served but at a distance
• Telephone orders are available, where you can arrange your goods to be collected at a more convenient time. We can also deliver directly to site (always following safety precautions)

Tradespeople advice:

Work carried out in people’s homes, for example by Plumbers carrying out repairs and maintenance, can continue, provided that the tradesperson is well and has no symptoms. Again, it will be important to ensure that Public Health England guidelines, including maintaining a two metre distance from any household occupants, are followed to ensure everyone’s safety.

No work should be carried out in any household which is isolating or where an individual is being shielded, unless it is to remedy a direct risk to the safety of the household, such as emergency plumbing or repairs, and where the tradesperson is willing to do so. In such cases, Public Health England can provide advice to tradespeople and households.

No work should be carried out by a tradesperson who has Coronavirus symptoms, however mild.
