I wanted to update everyone on the current position in regard to Covid19 and its effect on our business.
Whilst a small number of staff having shown early symptoms have followed the self-isolation guidelines issued by UK GOV, I am pleased to report that there have been no confirmed Corona Virus cases among our workforce. Approximately 75% of our operational employees continue to work to a full-time pattern supporting every client whose sites and plants remain open and functioning. We have also received requests for assistance from outside our existing client base and we have done everything we possibly can to provide service. The well being of everyone carries absolute priority and we are utilising our rigid systems of safe working as well as enhanced occupational health measures.
We have already acknowledged our massive appreciation to the NHS and all Key Workers who are doing their utmost to keep us all safe, cared for, fed and watered and we continue to be eternally grateful for their support.
Through this message I want to make mention of our own employees who’s continued efforts are allowing Rainham to carry on providing each of our services across the United Kingdom. Our clients messages of thanks and support have been earned not by me and my fellow directors but by you – our scaffolders, laggers, fitters, welders, cleaners, painters, labourers, supervisors and managers. You are working in anything but normal conditions with far greater than normal restrictions placed upon your movements and how you are able to interact with your co-workers. All this is in addition to having, like the rest of the country, to manage social distancing protocols and keep families, safe, well, educated and entertained.
There are others whose work has been disrupted or postponed but who continue to support Rainham totally, I want to thank each and every one of you. Together we will get through this and things will return to normal.
