Up To Speed Training | Thank you, Highway Key Workers
The Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic is one being fought on many fronts across the world.
A number of countries are in the process of dealing with the outbreak, which is the greatest health and economical challenge of our time.
The UK Government have implemented extreme emergency measures to control the spread of the virus, advising social distancing and self-isolation for those who can, the closing of schools and businesses across a number of sectors, and offering funding to businesses and the self-employed to help them through this unprecedented time.
As the nation plays their part in supporting the Government and essential healthcare workers to slow the spread, by staying in and working from the safety of their homes where possible, it is important that we show our gratitude to all of those workers who are unable to do so, and must continue their roles as normal on the frontline; including those within the Highway sector, who ensure critical navigation of the UK’s road network is as seamless as possible throughout the crisis
To support the efforts of the Government and the NHS, the Highway sector continues to ensure that the network is safe and accessible, enabling other key sectors to carry out their jobs at this difficult time. Whether it be delivering food supplies to shops, fuel to fuel stations, medicines to pharmacies, or new ventilators and PPE to hospitals and healthcare professionals, the UK’s Highway network is crucial in assisting these operations and the unsung heroes of the Highways sector continue to work tirelessly to allow the others to operate as they are.
By continuing their services to the Highway, the sector is protecting the key supply chains of essential goods, assisting them with remaining open and allowing much-needed manufacturing and support to take place.
Not only does it mean that supermarkets are stocked up, online retailers are able to carry on trading, and a whole host of other businesses are able to continue with as little disruption as possible, allowing them to focus their efforts on implementing and working to completely new safe practices for preventing virus spread, but it also means that the economy keeps moving and therefore contributes to minimising the fallout once this difficult period has been managed.
Through this time, it is important to stay safe and remember we must all do what we can to ensure we prevail and reach the other side as quickly as possible with minimal loss, in every sense of the term.
It is for this reason that we feel the need to show appreciation for the Highway sector and its workers, and just how vital they are in keeping our country moving, in many ways.
From all of the team at Up To Speed Training, stay safe and THANK YOU all!
