The Last 18 months has been an extraordinary journey in the Construction Industry as a whole. COVID-19 arrival in the UK meant that companies had to think on their feet, without support and with speed to ensure the safety of their workers. Toon Materials was no different and we had to make sure we sourced the correct masks and sanitary gel for our staff to allow them to continue working safely on site from their lorries. Putting in place new policies to eradicate contact between drivers and site personnel was of paramount ensuring the 2 meter rule. Informing Clients as soon as was possible that signatures would not be obtained; names only taken safeguarded our drivers from possible infection.
We are pleased to confirm that we knew we could rely in the sensible approach that our drivers would take; each driver calm and professional in everything that they do. Always ensuring that they had enough PPE and kept their lorries clean and free from possible contamination. We cannot thank them enough for the part they play during this ongoing pandemic. We are proud of each of them for the way in which they have conducted themselves at the forefront of our business.
We are pleased to be able to report that all of our clients have also hugely impressed us with their professionalism during negotiations and on site; all of us working towards the same end goal of safety and we thank them hugely for this support.
Every quarry, railhead, muck tip and recycling centre excelled in their new system of working; once again safety was of principal importance. Sensible attitudes and a new normal was formulated between Quarry and Haulier. Patience and a can do attitude really ensured the success of supply chains. Business as usual!
