Farsight’s response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak
In response to the current novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the UK, which is causing much concern and confusion to businesses, Farsight Security Services Ltd. wish to share the following information bulletin with our customers.
Farsight takes the health & safety of our staff and customers very seriously. We are also acutely aware of the importance placed on the remote monitoring services that we provide to homes, businesses and public sector clients.
The Farsight management team would like to reassure our customers that as a business we continually update the precautionary measures that we employ to protect our staff and the services that we provide on an ongoing basis, especially during these uncertain times.
These measures are defined by the guidance given by official UK governmental and public health advisory organisations. These include the NHS, Department for Business Energy & Industrial Strategy, Public Health England and the Health & Safety Executive.
To date our service levels have not been negatively affected in any way. However, we are continually monitoring the threat, and should the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continue to escalate, we have strong contingency plans in place to mitigate any challenges that may arise.
As a leading remote monitoring security service provider, Farsight is underpinned with many years’ experience in managing evolving risks, having the necessary skills and technology in place to ensure that we are ready to react quickly to the most challenging circumstances if need be.
We will of course keep our customers updated as we pride ourselves on our straight-forward honesty and transparency with our customers. In the meantime, we have listed some key resource that may be of help below.
