Plant equipment supplier Hiab UK to reopen Cumbernauld installation site
From Monday, the centres – including in Dudley, Ellesmere and Northallerton – will begin carrying out installation jobs under revised health and safety protocols as a result of the Covid-19 crisis.
“We are really pleased to be starting up installation operations again at our four key sites from Monday 27 April,” he said. “This means that we can commence installation activities as normal, under revised health and safety protocols.
“At Hiab we continue to take the situation very seriously and keeping our customers and our staff safe at work still remains our top priority.
“As a result, we have implemented additional health and safety protocols across all our centres which include a pre-booking system for all external visitors, additional cleaning and sanitising of workspaces and equipment, our staff all have PPE [personal protection equipment] and a strict two-metre distancing policy is in place at all times.
“Task teams at all Hiab sites ensure we follow government guidelines and uphold the enhanced health and safety protocols to manage infection control.”
The firm said there was no change to its service centres which have remained open as normal and the service vans and field service engineers who continue to work.
Mitchell added: “Thank you to our customers for their patience and understanding while we have had to adapt to the situation and change our usual opening times.
“Our teams remain flexible and we’re committed to supporting our customers to keep operations moving.”
Hiab has more than 3,300 employees worldwide.
