All SMBC contractors brief their operatives on Health and Safety for Covid-19, addressing best practice and also supplying personal protective equipment that can be deployed above and beyond what is already issued (face masks, safety glasses and gloves) if required, but the construction processes have been revised to mitigate such a requirement.

Solihull MBC is monitoring the ongoing works to ensure that both their and HM Government’s standards are adhered to and will constantly review the ongoing situation and alter their working practices to suit.
