Catapults

COVID-19

General

As with the majority of UK businesses, our normal working practices have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

We would like to reassure all our stakeholders that we are fully operational and you can continue to get in touch with us via the usual methods (email, phone, website or social media).

Catapult staff are fully accessible within usual business hours, with telephone or video-conferencing facilities being the preferred method of contact. Onsite meetings are available if essential, but limited for number of visitors per day.  Please do not hesitate to contact us for further clarification or information should you require it.

Site

CSA Catapult takes the wellbeing of its employees very seriously, and as such all colleagues have been advised to work at home wherever possible. We have put measures in place to support them to do so effectively.

Onsite staff work within controls that comply with and exceed government guidance.  A minimum of 2m distancing is maintained at all times and sanitising stations are available throughout the site. A ‘COVID tool’ is provided to all staff to use for opening doors, cupboards etc, further reducing the touchpoints during the working day.

Staff

Our site remains open to ensure that projects continue to agreed timescales. Our workplace has been restructured to ensure social distancing of 2m can be maintained in all areas. A dedicated COVID Coordinator controls the site on a day-to-day basis, ensuring staff stay as safe as possible.

A COVID-19 Risk Assessment has been carried out in line with Government requirements, to minimise the risk of exposure to, and spread of, coronavirus. An additional site-wide ‘touch point’ audit has identified and reduced touch points to reduce virus transmission risk. Improvement actions implemented include automatic doors, acoustic fire door retainers and automatic taps, soap dispensers and hand sanitisers.

Onsite numbers are controlled through the use of a desk booking system and both staff and visitor health declarations. These controls form an integral part of our track and trace system.
