MTS drivers, engineers, management and office staff have been classified as key workers during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Our company is doing vital work to keep the wastewater system running smoothly.
Managing Director Steve Gilson said; “Our priority is to keep our staff, customers and the general public safe and well during this crisis, while also delivering the highest standard of service. By being proactive we have been well-prepared for the recent government instructions, with our office staff already working from home and our drivers maintaining stringent sanitising and social distancing measures. We have often been described as ‘the fourth emergency service’ by customers and our hardworking crews are rising to that title in these challenging times.”
MTS began taking proactive action regarding changing working practices four weeks before the national lockdown was declared. Steve Gilson and the Board of Directors took a number of measures including surveys of employees’ IT equipment and broadband speeds in preparation for possible homeworking. They also purchased new laptops and other equipment that would be required to support relocating office staff.
At the same time, the company took the lead on enforcing strict standards of sanitising for lorry cabs and other equipment used by our field staff. We instructed our staff not to congregate in groups and to keep their distance from colleagues, customers and the general public.
Steve Gilson continued; “Our senior leadership team is holding daily conference calls to keep up with the fast-changing situation and ensure that all employees have the most up-to-date information on safe working procedures.”
We are key providers to major water utility clients including Southern Water, Thames Water, Severn Trent Water and South East Water.
