Star Platforms Limited – COVID-19 Statement

Firstly, we hope this communication finds you and your family safe and well at this unprecedented time.

The Government has designated ‘Plant and Tool Hire’ as an essential service and all Star Platforms locations remain open. We continue to deliver machines daily, throughout the UK, whilst following Government guidelines and safe practices.

We are fully committed to the safety of our customers, suppliers and colleagues and have introduced additional internal measures and methods in order to minimise the risk of catching and spreading Coronavirus. These measures are in line with guidelines set out by the Government, NHS and WHO.

These include:

  1. Staff are provided with the necessary PPE and we have increased our cleaning activities within our locations and company vehicles.
  2. Machines are thoroughly cleaned prior to hire paying particular attention to machine controls, handrails, gate/entry points and other common touchpoints.
  3. Contactless delivery & collection is achieved using our driver-app which records site location and photos of the machine.
  4. Our team, including mobile engineers and delivery drivers, have been instructed to maintain strict social distancing rules.
  5. Employees are encouraged and reminded to wash hands regularly and hand sanitiser is provided at each location as well as to mobile engineers and delivery drivers.
  6. Where it is possible to do so our staff are working remotely, from home.
  7. Meetings are now conducted remotely, which includes a daily board meeting to ensure Star Platforms are up to date with the situation and are following the Governments guidelines and advice.

We continue to monitor the situation daily and will adapt our processes wherever necessary to ensure the safety of all.

Please be assured that Star Platforms will continue to support you with powered access requirements throughout this period and we will do everything we can to ensure as close to a ‘Business as Usual’ customer service as possible.

We thank you for your continued loyalty and support.

Best wishes,

The Directors and staff at Star Platforms
