Coronavirus Updates

In light of the escalation of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we have taken the decision to begin working remotely. We have robust systems in place, meaning that our team will continue to provide you with the high level of service you have come to expect from us here at MPS Crane Operators.

You are able to contact us by phone on 01443 238452 as usual, or by using the details below:

Whilst the Government is increasing its calls for people to remain at home and to avoid all non-essential travel, at the time of writing, many construction sites across the country continue to operate. The following link contains the latest guidance on working during the current period of restrictions, as published by the Government: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/full-guidance-on-staying-at-home-and-away-from-others/full-guidance-on-staying-at-home-and-away-from-others

As per the guidance, where your work absolutely cannot be done from home, you are still able to travel to and from work provided you are well and neither you nor any of your household are self-isolating. This is consistent with advice from the Chief Medical Officer. We would like to remind all MPS Operators of the social distancing procedures that should be followed during your journey to and from site – maintaining a 2 metre distance from others, and washing your hands with soap and water often for at least 20 seconds (or using hand sanitiser gel if soap and water is not available). Where possible, we would strongly advise you to consider other means of transport to avoid using public transport.

Whilst construction sites continue to operate they must implement the Site Operating Procedures, details of which can be found here. If a site is not implementing these measures, it may be required to shut down.

We appreciate your patience during this difficult time and we look forward to a time when we can all safely return to work. For further details and future updates, please monitor this page on a regular basis.
