With the introduction of the Tier 1, 2 and 3 approach for regional Covid-19 controls, we have continued inspections for most non-essential service industries alongside those industries previously deemed as ‘critical’ by the UK and devolved governments.
Following the latest announcement of a second national lockdown, we anticipate the impact on non-essential service industries will be similar to the first lockdown, due to a lack of access or staff resources at a customers’ premises. In the event that Allianz are unable to complete an inspection due to access then we will issue a PNA notice and seek to re-schedule the inspection with the customer as lockdown conditions permit.
Allianz Engineer Surveyors have been defined as ‘key workers’ and our Covid-19 secure risk-based control measures provide the principal means of safeguarding our engineer surveyors and customers.
The national response to the pandemic presents a fast-changing situation and Allianz will continue to work closely with the Safety Assessment Federation (SAFed) to ensure that the provision of our services is aligned to the continued safety, security and resilience of the national critical infrastructure services and industries.
Thank you for your support.
