Jordan Environmental Sectors

DIFFERENT SECTORS : different motivations

At Jordan Environmental we are empathic to our client’s needs and take a flexible approach to our services delivery, whilst still ensuring peace of mind through value and compliance.

 

Recognising that expectation can uniquely differ crucially assists us in effectively working across a broad range of business and commercial sectors.

Whether in Education, Social Housing or one of many other sectors, the end game is always the need for Safe, Clean Water and Air, and Thermal comfort.

What differs is the motivational path to that point.

Those responsible for the operation of their buildings water and air services will not necessarily be professionals in that particular aspect and may have the need to prioritise other daily working challenges.

For example, a School will understandably prioritise a child’s education, with our aspects of work potentially being a distraction from ‘the main event’ !  Others may be desperately looking for a solution to sort a ‘sludged and blocked’ heating system, while some may simply be after the most competitive cost to reach minimum legal ‘legionella control’ compliance levels.

 

The potential scenarios across the range of services that we deliver and the different sectors we deal with is extensive, to say the least.

Whichever category you fall within, we will always listen and then respond. We are as comfortable taking on a full system chemical cleaning project as we are a minor temperature monitoring regime. We are also open when clients wish to use their own staff to undertake aspects of the service. In fact, we will often assist them in enabling that to happen.

Our flexible approach only stops if we feel that the standards that we work to could be compromised or where we are aware that a Client is leaving themselves exposed to risk. In either case we will take our usual honest and pragmatic approach and hope that the story always ends well for both parties.

Our ethos is always that we work 'with' our clients and not just 'for' them. We are on the same team

We show integrity when dealing with our Client’s staff  and our Client’s clients. This is demonstrated by observing and ensuring that diplomatic and commercial political unwritten rules are followed.
We aim to gain our Client’s respect in the way that we approach our tasks and also in a way that will build a mutually beneficial professional relationship for now and for the future.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Important information regarding COVID-19 Pandemic

 

The following is not intended to add further anxiety to an already bad situation but is factual advice that Building Services Professionals should already be aware of, but which is worth repeating.

We are working in unprecedented and extraordinary times with the way that the Coronavirus Virus (Covid-19) Pandemic has suddenly impacted on all aspects of our lives.

It is therefore understandable that a majority of companies, organisations and institutions are focussing on their own strategies of operation and protection. At Jordan Environmental Ltd we are facing the same challenges.

A totally understandable reaction to the current Covid-19 issue is to close to all ‘outsiders’ but this ignores a foundation principle of COSHH and risk reduction.

The mitigation of one risk could be creating another.

This is what happening with Water Hygiene aspects.

We urge those responsible for the Building Water Services to consider this aspect when reducing occupancy levels or closing buildings, as the risk from waterborne bacteria, including Legionella, will become elevated as the risk of Covid-19 is reduced.

The mitigation of one risk could be creating another.

Information regarding COVID-19 Pandemic

Bacteria inevitably colonise water systems and when these become irregularly used or mothballed in increasing levels of ‘Lockdown’, the bacteria will start to multiply.

The approach of the Spring and Summer, with higher ambient temperatures creating tepid water temperatures, will create ‘the perfect storm’!

We highly recommend that existing water hygiene regimes should be continued and as well as introduction of other additional aspects that can be undertaken by site staff.

Not every aspect of our service provision would be considered as ‘essential’ but ongoing legionella control and prevention is! This is recognised by leading professional organisations.

Please allow us to attend to your sites where at all possible. Our Water Hygiene Technicians are all well aware of risk levels and the practice of safe procedures.

We are here to assist and will be remaining open at all times for contact and advice, as a minimum.

The one certainty that is undeniable right now is uncertainty itself, so we at Jordan Environmental remain supportive to all clients and associates and wish you all Good Luck and Good Health at this time.

Yours sincerely
Alan Jordan
Managing Director
