The Aircrete Products Association: COVID-19 Industry Position
30 Mar 2020
As a result of the guidance provided by the Government and Public Health England, all APA member Aircrete manufacturers are responding quickly and taking immediate steps to help minimise any potential spread of COVID-19.
By monitoring the changing landscape daily, all APA members will now cease Aircrete product production as soon and as safely as possible while continuing to review the situation to act accordingly.
APA members also recognise that some Aircrete products may be needed urgently by customers and certain construction projects so therefore, some APA members will continue to despatch product from existing stock whilst it remains safe to do so.
Appropriate safeguarding measures, including the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and appropriate social and work-related distancing protocols, are already in place.
The health, safety and wellbeing of employees, customers and suppliers is of paramount importance.
The APA believe that the construction industry will be a key player in the stabilising and reshaping the UK economy.
APA members are putting in measures to safeguard the industry, so that all are in a strong position to resume normal operations once we are all through this unprecedented time.
