Business Continuity Management Plan: COVID-19/Coronavirus Notice
Like many other organisations we recognise that the outbreak of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic is having an impact on day-to-day life, and this includes the way Swann Engineering Group Ltd (SEG) operates.
Our priority is to ensure our employees stay safe and healthy but also to continue to provide the services, products and support needed by our partners and clients. Much of the work we do is on critical national infrastructure, so it is important that we retain focus on the needs of each project and deliver positive outcomes in line with the customers’ expectations.
SEG has issued and continues to monitor its policy for dealing with COVID-19 in the workplace.
This Business Continuity Management Plan is a working document that reflects the business as it is at the current stage of the virus outbreak and covers all of our site locations.
The Manufacturing Director will identify, plan and manage all resource changes within the production areas on a daily basis. They will conduct risk assessments and analysis of the impact on the business in order to determine the magnitude of the likely effects. If significant numbers of employees are unable to attend work, additional manufacturing resources can be sourced by:
The delivery of products to customers’ premises using our own vehicles will be agreed on a site by site basis, and as long as we believe the delivery driver is not put at risk.
SITE BASED WORK
All construction project site visits and installations are currently going ahead as planned and are being conducted in strict accordance with the main contractor’s safety instructions.
All telecoms site visits are being conducted in accordance with current guidelines and with particular focus and checks placed on access restrictions.
PROJECTS, TECHNICAL AND SALES
The majority of our office-based staff are equipped with laptops and mobile phones to enable them to work effectively, whether they be at home or in another office.
Where an employee’s role dictates that a desktop PC is more appropriate (generally higher-power machines for CAD and Engineering programs) we have organised remote software which enables them to control their office PC via a remote machine.
Staff without appropriate home devices will be issued with a laptop for this task. If a decision is made to allow a member of staff to work from home, then managers/directors will ensure that they have the ability to perform their duties whilst away from the office and that contact details are available to all relevant clients.
The Operations, Sales and Technical Directors will identify, plan and manage all resource changes within the operational areas on a daily basis. They will:
All work-related events e.g. conferences and exhibitions have been cancelled for the time being.
The Managing Director will review the overall impact on business operations daily to ensure both the safety of the employees is being considered whilst reviewing the effects of the measures in place to maintain the operational effectiveness of the business.
They will further develop the business continuity plan if additional actions are required to maintain the supply of products and services to the customer base.
