Hawkins & Associates - COVID-19 Business As Usual

In the light of the developing COVID-19 Pandemic, Hawkins has implemented its detailed Business Continuity Plan, which is under constant review as the situation changes from day to day.

We are following UK Government advice. All front-line investigators are equipped for remote working to reduce contact between each other, as well as with customers, instructing principals and any other people with whom they may come into contact (e.g. contractors and other witnesses). Non-essential meetings with people from any of the above categories, which previously would have occurred face-to-face, will continue by telephone/video/conference calls as appropriate.

For the time being, Hawkins is treating instructions to undertake urgent site inspections as essential business travel, for example investigating the cause of a fire. We are also following Government social distancing advice, with further protection to all concerned afforded by respirators and PPE routinely worn by investigators on site.

Hawkins was awarded the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA) Gold Award in both 2018 and 2019, demonstrating our commitment to the safety of both our own people and our customers.

All site visits are subject to our award winning risk assessment process, and this has been updated to minimise the risk of potential cross-infection between investigators and customers.

Hawkins continues to accept instructions, as well as to undertake urgent site investigations both in the UK and overseas from our international offices, subject to travel restrictions. If you are unsure whether to instruct Hawkins please call your usual contact, or telephone our London Office on +44(0)207 481 4897.

Further updates will follow as matters develop.
