COVID-19 update: COVID Risk Assessment published

25 August 2020

Our readiness for the introduction of lockdown measures in March meant that our contingency plans were fully implemented within a few days.

All staff moved seamlessly to remote working, and there was no interruption in the high-quality delivery our clients expect from us.

Now that lockdown restrictions are easing, we are implementing our plan for a phased return to our offices, guided as ever by two principles: safeguarding the wellbeing of our people and preserving continuity of delivery for our clients.

In support of this plan, and in line with guidance issued by the UK Government, the World Health Organisation and the NHS, we have produced a COVID Risk Assessment which you can download here:

Our plan defines three modes of operation for our offices beyond the current period:

  • Controlled Personal Use – in this mode, the offices will be open purely to assist with the wellbeing of our people, in support of those for whom full home working is challenging
  • Limited Business Use – at the appropriate time, we will designate the offices open for certain business activities, e.g. key project meetings
  • Full Business Use – by this stage, there will be new working patterns agreed and adopted

For now, only our English offices will reopen for Controlled Personal Use. We will keep Edinburgh under review pending further guidance from the Scottish Government.
