Site inspection Covid-19 guidance
We will complete the site inspection in line with our risk assessments and national guidance on COVID-19. Please note these may change along with national guidance. This is to protect both yourselves, your client, and our staff.
Where possible we'll:
- arrange a time for the inspection.
- need the inspection area cleared of any site personnel or residents before our visit;
- arrange to meet you or your contractor outdoors in an area where we can maintain at least two metre separation distance. There should be no more than three people present at any meeting.
- carry out any internal inspections alone. The building should be well ventilated during the inspection. Have all doors open to avoid the need to touch surfaces.
If we cannot maintain the two metre separation or there is an infection risk from anyone present on site, we will leave the site immediately. We will only return when measures are in place to reduce that risk. This may affect our ability to provide the completion certification.
We would ask for your cooperation to keep everyone safe.
