Business Continuity Plan - Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Reducing building use or even short-term closure will impact on the overall health of your premises. SMS Environmental has considered how best we support our customers during this period.

Whilst SMS Environmental continue to deliver services as usual to its customers, the increase of Covid-19 (novel coronavirus) cases in the UK and the decision from the government to move from “containment” to a “delay” stage has turned the focus to reducing the risks of exposure from the virus. This is creating a huge challenge for all building operators.

  • Are you struggling with the reduced use or closure of your property?
  • Are you trying to maintain safe services within your premises?
  • Are you concerned about the standard of cleanliness of your building?

Disinfection of Water Systems

Whilst the potential for the growth of legionella bacteria is the main reason why you may carry out some form of water treatment, there are many other benefits and reasons for doing so. Applying water treatment processes to systems can save time and money associated with equipment downtime and repair.

Flushing Infrequently Used Outlets

During periods of little use it is important your water system isn't neglected.

Periodic flushing achieves circulation of water in outlets and the associated pipework. It is one of the most effective ways of maintaining control of bacteria in your system and is a recommendation of HSE guidance.

Record keeping of what outlets and when they are flushed remain important. Without records it is very difficult to convince others that a task has been completed so this should not be forgotten even during periods of disruption.
