These steps are carried out prior to attending your home, in addition each engineer will be wearing appropriate PPE:
• Face mask
• Gloves
• Coveralls
• Face Shield – Resident identified as high risk / or if requested

They will also clean surfaces that they have to touch in the process of carrying out the service, such as door handles, cupboard handles and the boiler casing.

We would ask where possible that you stay in another room while the engineer completes this important check - this will facilitate social distancing for both you and the engineer, we would ask that you always keep a minimum distance of 2M.

We understand that these are difficult times and the priority is to keep everyone safe and well. By putting these procedures in place CTS can continue to carry out essential works to ensure that your boiler is safe and in good working order.

If your gas check is due or if Thenue/CTS have contacted you to make an appointment and you have been unable to give access due to Covid – 19, please get in contact with us urgently and we can make arrangements to visit on a date and time that is suitable to you.
