With the rapidly developing situation regarding Coronavirus COVID-19 we are letting you know what steps SELLA CONTROLS is undertaking to ensure we are able to continue to operate and meet our customer’s needs whilst also ensuring the safety of our employees.
Underlying all of our actions is a recognition of the importance of the health and safety of our employees, our customers, and their respective families during these times of uncertainty. Our business is the supply and maintenance of mission and safety critical systems for high hazard industries and critical infrastructure; in many cases our customers’ activities and products are essential for the wider community and we will strive to continue to support our customers through this crisis.
We would also like to reassure all our technical support/maintenance contract holders that our aim is to continue to provide the necessary support levels.
We constantly monitor and follow UK Government advice and our current position is that all employees who can work from home will be encouraged to do so and we have put in place the technology and infrastructure in order to facilitate this. We have ceased all non-essential travel and are encouraging both employees and clients to use technology to communicate; such as conference calls and video conferencing rather than face-to-face meetings.
We currently plan to maintain core operations at each of our offices in Stockport, Ashby de la Zouch and Coalville to enable us to continue to undertake critical roles in safety systems, operations, testing and production and thereby provide the support for our customers when they are likely to need us most. We have in conjunction with this brought in new working practices to minimise the risk to health; such as enhanced cleaning and hygiene protocols and the minimising of group working and reducing the risk of unnecessary contact and we would ask that any visitors also adhere to these policies.
Our staff are regularly briefed on developments and we continue to monitor closely the evolving situation and adopt suitable approaches to work in line with advice from the UK Government and the World Health Organisation.
