As a company, it is our intention to help our community to the best of our ability, whilst ensuring we follow the latest official guidance from the UK Government and Public Health England to work safely.

Oakleaf Electrical are taking the following steps:

  • Office staff working from home, where and when possible
  • Electricians/Apprentices travelling to site individually
  • Promotion of good hygiene standards, including washing hands regularly and use of hand sanitiser
  • Ensuring social distancing requirements are met and, where this is not possible, a task cannot be carried out

Responsibilities of Electricians/Apprentices:

  • To ensure that all working conditions are safe, and that all health and safety measures are being fully implemented
  • Work out staggered lunch break timings to ensure that canteens/welfare areas are limited to only a few people at a time, and that these individuals are adhering to social distancing rules
  • If unsure of what to do in a given situation, the Electrician/Apprentice must contact their Manager and discuss with them before making any decisions, to ensure that the correct advice is sought out and implemented
