COVID-19 Business Update

Here at GSE the health and wellbeing of our employees, subcontractors and suppliers is at the heart of everything that we do.

We are open, business as usual, whilst we continue to monitor the ever changing situation that we all find ourselves within.

We continue to follow the advice given by local authorities and the Government to best protect our teams and our wider community.

We have already taken steps to reduce the day-to-day office staff, and create space within the office environment, by instructing those that can work from home to do so.

We have also restricted all visits deemed non-business critical to our offices during this time.

On site our teams are following the Public Health England guidance on social distancing as is the current advice.
