Cotswold Archaeology fully understands and accepts its responsibilities for the safety and well-being of our staff, clients and others during the national health emergency brought about by the onset of the COVID-19 virus. We have worked hard over the last month or so to ensure that our operations accord with evolving Government guidance and have developed a suite of COVID-19 Health & Safety policies and procedures. Most recently we revised our risk assessments to align fully with the guidance set out in Working Safely During Coronavirus. You can view our COVID-19 office and site risk assessments. This has allowed us to adhere to the Government’s directive that construction sites should remain open, where it is safe to do so. Through this vigorous management effort we have been able to work on an increasing number of archaeological field projects throughout the country and anticipate shortly that we will be able to deploy around three quarters of our field teams to site.
All five of our offices remain open for business, but are naturally closed to visitors. The majority of our office staff are working remotely from home, but have full connectivity and are able to respond to customer communications and new project enquiries. If you have an enquiry on a potential new project please contact us in the usual way, using email or mobile telephone numbers. On current projects we continue to adapt to changing customer requirements and methods of working.
Inevitably all of our public engagements are postponed for now, but we do hope to reschedule these when it is safe and practicable to do so.
Cotswold Archaeology will react accordingly as the Government unwinds its lockdown restrictions over the coming months and we will update this notice as the situation changes.
