Supporting Essential Services
As a provider of essential services, Scotland TranServ will continue to support the emergency services, freight and retail workers whose role is so important to the health, safety and supply of our communities.
In response to Scottish Government guidance, Transport Scotland has asked that all non-essential operations and maintenance temporarily cease. Scotland TranServ is working with Transport Scotland to ensure that this is delivered in a safe and efficient manner. All of our non-essential road surface improvement works and other projects have been suspended in line with this guidance.
To support our own essential workers, we have introduced a number of new vehicles to our fleet to allow them to travel individually, provided additional welfare facilities, staggered shift patterns, reviewed and changed working practices, increased depot cleaning and procured new face masks, gloves, wipes and hand sanitiser. We continue to provide workers with information on social distancing and encourage them to maintain this in their working environment.
All staff who are able to fulfil their role from home are already doing so. Scotland TranServ continues to support and advise frontline employees in working safely to deliver essential services, while following government guidelines.
