Temple Lifts employs over 150 people across the UK and maintains well over 6,000 lifts and escalators, installed in a wide range of building types. 

We have responded to the COVID-19 pandemic by closing our offices to our staff and working remotely, where possible. We have, however, as detailed in our March COVID-19 Statement and under guidance from our parent company Hitachi, continued to provide emergency support for hospitals, emergency service sites, vulnerable people homes and medical institutes.

With the  Governments’ advice earlier with regards to returning to work, Temple Lifts are now undertaking steps as to when it would be best to implement a progressive return to work for those of our staff who do not have to travel on public transport to get to work. 

Temple Lifts’ actions 

Like many businesses, we have been preparing for the staggered and managed lifting of the lockdown requirements. This has included undertaking risk assessments for each office and a schedule of work, to ensure our facilities are prepared for our return to work which includes a thorough deep clean at each location, the application of floor distance and entrance marking, and adding partitions or barriers to separate work areas where required, to help with social distancing and minimise employee interactions. We have also created multiple hand sanitiser stations for those entering or working at our offices. We are increasing our cleaning and disinfecting protocols at each office and issuing COVID-19 safe working practices documentation along with additional PPE to all of our engineers. 

We remain focused and place the safety of our employees and their families, as well as our customers and partners, as our number one priority and will continue to do so.  

Additionally, we thank you for your understanding over the past weeks.
