Unique Group COVID-19 Response
17th April 2020
Unique Group is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation, and is making the safety of our employees, customers, and members of our local community our first priority.
According to Government Advice, those working in ‘Utilities, communications and financial services’ are classed as Key Workers, meaning that Unique Group’s operational work falls under the critical sectors list in response to the COVID-19 situation.
Unique Group have implemented the following measures to ensure the utmost safety to our customer base and the wider community;
- Essential office based staff are currently working from home and not working in the office at Unique HQ
- Employees carrying out essential maintenance, reacting to urgent repairs and small works have been scaled down to ‘Skeleton Staff’
- Our employees who are operating out of the office for the above, are wearing gloves, masks and have hand sanitizer on their person
- Employees are maintaining the Government recommended 2-metre distance from any contact on-site
We have made the above decisions to ensure that we can support our Government during these uncertain times. The safety of your property is more important than ever and with this in mind, Unique Group is now carrying out surveys of properties remotely using a number of different aids, including Google Maps, existing plans of the home and more. Please get in touch if you’re interested.
Unique Group is a full service of companies in the Fire & Security, Tech Solutions and Property Solutions industries. Protecting our customers, communicating effectively, and providing a quality service, has always been our main priority. Whether that’s capturing key evidence with our CCTV cameras, identifying and rectifying Major Electrical Faults, working with you to create bespoke designs for your home or detecting the early stages of a fire with our smoke detectors. This is especially significant during this time, where we are doing everything we can to protect our employees, customers and the community.
The British Approvals for Fire Equipment (BAFE), the registration body for third party certified fire protection companies, are one of our leading accreditation bodies. They have a live news page for the latest updates relating to the effects of COVID-19 in the Fire Industry.
We anticipate that the Government will make a number of adjustments over the coming weeks and months, and we will be making amendments to our services in line with their advice. We will ensure that we notify our customers of any necessary changes we make that may impact them.
We will continue to monitor the situation, this article will be updated accordingly for any adjustments to business services made.
We send our customers, employees and community our best wishes, and hope you are staying safe.
