As society continues to navigate the challenges presented by COVID-19, here at AB Glass we support the initiative by the government’s Construction Leadership Council, which is encouraging the construction industry to lead the way in using the new NHS COVID-19 app.
The NHS Covid-19 smart phone application went live in England and Wales from 24th September 2020 to enable QR check-in at venues and sites to help with tracking and tracing people who come into contact with virus carriers.
As such, we will be encouraging all our staff and stakeholders to download the app and use it – following its advice and recommendations at all times.
Alan Brayley, Managing Director of AB Glass, said:
“We have always adhered to all government advice and guidelines and this is no different. We believe the construction industry is well placed to help in the battle against COVID-19. We have continued to operate throughout the pandemic using site operating procedures and we have continued to put health and safety first at all times; on that basis we feel the industry can lead from the front when new measures such as this are rolled out.”
Andy Mitchell, industry-side chair of the Construction Leadership Council, said in a statement:
“We believe the construction industry can lead the way in encouraging the widest possible rollout of this app, which will be vital in our national fight against COVID-19 in the weeks and months ahead.”
