We Are Open For Business During The COVID-19 Pandemic

In this unprecedented and extremely difficult period, we at Robert Richards Associates Limited sincerely hope that everyone is safe and well. These challenging times mean a change in circumstances for the whole of society, with almost everybody finding themselves at home a lot more.

With this in mind, we’d like to share some valuable information that you may find useful.

Working From Home

Many people, our staff included, currently find themselves working from home. If using the house as your temporary workspace, there are certain measures you should consider putting in place for you and your families’ safety.

If you have to use an electrical adaptor, where possible, ensure that it is the strip-type (where all of the sockets are in line with each other) and that it is fitted with a working fuse of a suitable rating. Make sure that the adaptor is not overloaded, in terms of the equipment plugged into it and that its’ position doesn’t present a trip hazard to anyone. This goes for anything you may have placed on the floor, if only for a short period of time.

You should not leave any item of electrical equipment that is plugged into the mains unattended. If you are not working on/with it, then it is needlessly using electricity.

Where possible, you should avoid using block-type adaptors, especially old ones, as they may not have a fuse fitted.

Company Update

Despite the prevailing situation, our staff continue to work hard for companies across our client base. Most recently, we have been working in Edinburgh, the Central belt, Scottish Borders, Scottish Highlands and Ayrshire to provide our customers with the services they need to conform with the appropriate legislation, keeping them compliant.

We have the appropriate measures and structures in place to ensure we can still provide :-

  • Fire extinguisher supply, commission and servicing
  • Portable Appliance Testing (PAT), in occupied or empty premises
  • Fire Risk Assessment
  • Fire door inspections
  • Emergency signage supply
  • Legionella and drinking water testing
If you and your staff are currently not operating out of your normal workplace, now might be a good time for us to attend. We can carry out any work you may require, to ensure you are compliant, now and for when your staff and normal work resumes.

Please be assured that Robert Richards Associates Limited have the resilience in place and the expertise to help you and your company through these challenging times.

For any further information about our services please do not hesitate to get in touch by emailing info@robertrichardsassociates.co.uk or calling 0131 285 6333.

Thank you.
