Got an Orbex engineer coming?
Here’s what to expect when we come to your business or home
COVID-19 / Coronavirus and how we're protecting people
The work Orbex does is critical with our engineers given Key Worker status. Our number one priority is to keep people connected, and we’ve been working closely with our Service Providers and other partners to minimise the impact of the Government’s restrictions on the services we can provide.
Following new Public Health England guidance issued on 11th May Orbex Solutions and our CP partners will be starting to do work inside customers’ homes and businesses again from Monday 8th June, where necessary. Whilst there is a high Coronavirus alert level in place, there are special measures we all need to take to keep each other safe.
What to expect if you’ve got an engineer coming
If you’re expecting an Orbex engineer to visit your premises, rest assured our engineers will be taking special measures to ensure your safety and their own. They will talk to you about the job and how we can make our visit as short and safe as possible.
Before our engineer arrives please:
- Clear a path to the area where our engineers have to carry out the work.
- With an antibacterial wipe, clean down any surfaces around the equipment our engineers may come into contact with.
- Open any windows or doors where the Orbex engineer will probably need to work.
Please ensure you maintain two metres social distancing and, wherever possible, move to a different room. Once the engineer has finished working, they’ll wipe down any surface they’ve touched before leaving.
At the end of the appointment, our engineer will explain what they’ve done – via the phone, Teams, Whatsapp or Facetime – whichever suits you best.
On the day of your appointment
Your engineer will call or text you beforehand to check you’re in, see if there’s anything they need to know about your address (like access or parking) and tell you roughly when they’ll be there.
When they arrive
They’ll talk you through what they’ll be doing. If they need to, they’ll agree with you where to put any equipment and talk about options for wiring.
When they’re finished, they’ll check everything is up and running as it should be. And they’ll clean up any mess they’ve made before they go.
