Stirling BC COVID-19 Statement
With the impacts of COVID-19 (coronavirus) being felt throughout the world, we’d like to take a moment to reassure our clients as best we can, and provide some information on how we are dealing with the current circumstances.
While the full impact of COVID-19 on health and the economy is yet to be seen, we’d like to let our clients know that from our perspective, we’re continuing as usual, with some tweaks. We’re both set up to work remotely, meaning that with the wonders of modern technology, all project work and most maintenance work can be completed effectively without us having to visit your workplace.
That said, we still love providing personal service and visiting our clients in person, and we’re happy to continue to do so while restrictions allow. We’re observing social distancing and strict hygiene, of course, and are more than happy to comply with additional COVID-19-related requirements that our clients wish to observe.
In a very positive development, the regulator of certification assessment bodies, JAS-ANZ, has implemented some short-term changes to the way third-party audits are permitted to be completed: namely, auditors are permitted to complete audits remotely in some circumstances. So thankfully, there’s no need to cancel your audit or jeopardise your certification in any way. To check specific arrangements, get in touch with your certification body.
While we can’t provide any reassurances on how this situation will evolve, we can say with confidence that we are here to help our clients weather the situation as best we all can. Long story short: we’re still available to help you put in a new system, maintain your existing system, and represent you at audit, either in person or via technology. We’re doing our best to stay safe, react sensibly, and minimise disruption from COVID-19 in a time when uncertainty is high.
We thank all our clients for their support during these trying times. If you’d like to get in touch, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
