We would like to reassure you that we are doing everything possible to maintain our ordering and delivery service for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting restrictions which have been and will be imposed. We are acting in line with official directions from Health Organisations and Government to prevent the spread of COVID-19. These directions are changing on a daily basis and we will adapt our operations to best protect our customers and staff while maintaining our services. We have carried out a risk assessment of the potential impact of COVID-19 on our staff and operations and as a result we have made changes which will reduce the potential impacts. Some of the changes we have introduced include enabling homeworking for staff, where possible, and actively promoting and facilitating best hygiene practice as recommended by the HSE to combat the spread of COVID-19. As part of our service involves deliveries at customer’s homes or business premises we are making some immediate changes to how we conduct these deliveries in order to comply with social distancing recommendations. Until further notice:
- We will not be taking signatures on delivery dockets.
- We will not be accepting cash payment for deliveries.
As the situation develops we will make further changes as appropriate and we will endeavour to minimise the impact on our services. We believe that following official recommendations is the best way to protect our customers and staff and our ability to maintain our services. Despite our best efforts, there may be an impact on services which is beyond our control so delays are possible over the period of disruption and we appreciate your understanding in these circumstances. We will post further updates as they arise on this page. Emo Oil
