Statement on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The current Global Health Pandemic surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is affecting every one of us. At Push The Button, first and foremost we are human beings and in a world where information and recommendations are constantly changing our main concern is the health and welfare of our staff and customers. 

Below is a summary of our approach to ongoing and future projects to maximise what we can still achieve for our customers whilst, minimising the risk to health and welfare.

Staff and Client Welfare

Our site teams are practicing social distancing whilst working on projects and we have individual accommodation where necessary. We have developed specific COVID-19 Risk Assessments and Method Statements which are available upon request. We have identified ‘high risk’ personnel (those with existing medical conditions) and taken steps to protect their health. We have contingency plans in place as far as is possible. We are encouraging all staff to self-isolate should they feel the need to and are looking at the issues surrounding this on a case by case basis. 

Operation

Those staff members who can work from home are doing so. The office is open with a reduced staffing level and practicing social distancing with visiting by appointment only. We are still able to respond to all incoming enquiries and manage all ongoing contracts, although response times may be slower. We are following Government guidelines, which are under constant appraisal.

Suppliers

We are not experiencing any issues with deliveries from our suppliers at the present moment but have received statements from several suppliers who are closely monitoring the evolving situation. Should we encounter supply chain issues these will be handled on a case by case basis with customers informed immediately.

At Push The Button we are working our hardest to minimise the inevitable disruption caused by the unprecedented situation we find ourselves in and still very much open for business. The business is in an extremely strong long term position to be able to ride out the current storm and we are planning and preparing in case of a ‘spike’ on the other side. If there is anything that we can do to help then please do not hesitate to contact us.

Our thoughts are with the wider industry and their families in these most difficult of times and we would love to hear from you if we can do anything to help.
