UAS places, as a priority, the health, safety and wellbeing of our workforce and the public

Ultimate Access Solutions Limited Statement (revised) Date: 01/12/2023

UAS adheres to all Government legislation & guidance. UAS prioritises the health, safety and wellbeing of our workforce and the public, especially so where our services involve direct engagement with third parties, e.g., residential developments. We liaise with our clients and their customers to minimise risks and the planning of projects has taken on a greater emphasis in recent years. 

From the back office perspective, our offices are cleaned weekly and MS Teams is used as the de facto engagement tool, both internally and externally. 

Vigilance and compliance remain our focus and we will continue with a number of good practices that have been developed.
