COVID-19 DIO Accommodation Update - SFA

As we move into a further 3-week Covid-19 lockdown, there are a number of steps we continue to take to ensure you and your SFA remain safe:
  • It is vital that at all times we provide you with a safe, compliant and well-maintained home, and so, in line with Government and Health and Safety Executive advice, Amey will continue to carry out response and pre-planned maintenance, and grounds maintenance on the SFA estate.
  • We understand and share the concerns of Service families at this difficult time.  Therefore, in carrying out their work, Amey staff and their industry partners will follow Government guidelines and protect your health and safety by:
    • confirming in advance whether anyone at the property is self-isolating or social distancing
    • washing hands for 20+ seconds using soap and warm water at the nearest available hand wash basin on arrival and before departure
    • using anti-bacterial hand gel where there are no hand washing facilities
    • wearing an ID card in a visible position
    • remaining more than 2m from other people
    • asking occupants to move to another room/area while the work is carried out
    • cleaning tools and equipment using sanitisation spray or wipes
  • While we continue to deliver the full range of response and pre-planned maintenance tasks, a reduction in the availability of materials means that some routine tasks may take longer than usual.  However, Amey will always endeavour to respond to emergency and critical maintenance calls within contracted timelines.
  • As you may be aware, the Health and Safety Executive has directed that scheduled Gas and Electrical safety checks should continue.  An annual Gas Safety check is a legal requirement for all landlords, and the MOD is no different in this respect; the check is an essential safety requirement to ensure that your home is gas-safe and to reduce the potential for a carbon monoxide incident.  In addition, keeping electrical systems in good condition is extremely important for the safety and smooth functioning of your home, and reduces the potential for electrical fires.
  • All but essential SFA moves have been postponed to 1 July at the earliest, and we will maintain communications with all Service families affected by this decision.Please be assured that the safety of Service families and staff remains our highest priority.  We welcome your continued support during the Covid-19 crisis, especially in allowing access to your home so that we can carry out essential safety checks. You can read more here about the steps we are taking, together with answers to Frequently Asked Questions.
