Whilst complying with government guidelines we also aim to meet any extra requirements you may have in place within your company or organisation.  Should you have any particular protocols in place that we need to follow please make us aware at the earliest possible opportunity to ensure we can comply with these.

Within our own company we undertake a continual risk assessment process to ensure we are operating within the government guidelines and understand the importance of limiting contact wherever possible. We are happy to undertake meetings in person however where these can be undertaken through digital means, such as a Zoom or Skype, we believe that this should be the preferred choice to limit the risk of transmission.
