Staying Safe during the Covid-19 Pandemic
At Carmichael UK the health, safety, and wellbeing of our candidates is our top priority.
We have robust health and safety polices and procedures in place and we regularly audit our client's sites to ensure that all our contractors are working in a safe environment that does not present a risk to either their physical or mental health. We regularly review these policies in relation to the additional risks presented by Covid-19 both in our offices and at our client's sites. Findings from these reviews are communicated to our clients, contractors, and staff as necessary and changes to our process and procedures are implemented as required.
We ask all contractors to make us aware if they are in a clinically vulnerable group at risk from Covid-19 so that we can ensure that appropriate mitigations are put in place by our clients to ensure their safety. We suggest that all contractors follow Government guidelines by taking up the Covid-19 vaccines and, where applicable, the Covid-19 booster jab. We encourage contractors to protect themselves and others from risk by following all recommended and legislative government guidelines in respect of social distancing, mask wearing, and self-isolation as required.
We expect all contractors and visitors to our offices to comply with our office Covid-19 protocols including temperature checks on entry, hand washing, social distancing and the wearing of face coverings. All visitors require an appointment to visit our offices and we respectfully ask that you do not attend our offices if you feel unwell.
