Like everyone else, we’re following the situation regarding COVID-19 very closely and following Government advice. We wanted to provide our clients with some reassurance that we are doing our very best to ensure business continuity and to minimise the impacts on your business during the most challenging of times.
Road Safety Audits during COVID-19
Stage 1 and 2 Road Safety Audits
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation and following the Government’s travel relaxations, we have decided, as a company, to start to resume our site visits (whilst adhering to the recommended social distancing measures, separate travel for the audit team and our own best practice guidance).
Our auditors have been working hard to get through the back log of site visits for our design stage audits. This has allowed the audit teams to finalise all of the draft audit reports they have been working on since the end of March 2020.
Since the middle of May, our auditors have been particularly busy carrying out audits throughout the country on a variety of schemes, including some major highway projects, for many of our regular clients together with many new commissions from new clients.
Stage 3 Road Safety Audits
We have also started to resume, to some degree, our site visits for Stage 3 Road Safety Audits (subject to scheme location).
To minimise the risks on site during these times, we are still intending on limiting the attendees on site to the TMS audit team only. Therefore, we would not invite representatives from the Highway Authority, the Police, the Design Team or other Contractors.
However, if third parties want to attend, then our initial preference would be that they visit the site independently of the audit team (within a specified time frame). The third parties are then able to provide feedback to the audit team, either by phone call, comments via email or video call, prior to the completion of the RSA3 report.
We request that our client's seek confirmation from the Local Highway Authority that they are happy to accept this temporary procedure.
