Let's be cautious and stay safe!

We understand that many people are wanting to get back to some normality but the measures we have followed for the past year do not impact on our delivery of services and more importantly, ensure continued safety for everyone.

Throughout this awful pandemic, we’ve focused on making sure everyone can get the materials they need in a safe environment. As the Government guidance changes today, we wanted to update you on our approach to the safety measures that will remain at our sites, quarries, offices and waste recycling centre.

Covid safety measures at NMSB

Whilst the easing of restrictions means that some safety measures will no longer be a legal requirement, we’ve listened to our industry body and the HSE, who advise members that all existing controls and measures remain in place to manage Covid-19 risk in the workplace over the coming weeks. Furthermore, we have asked our customers and our staff and we understand that a lot of people want to remain cautious as well.

Therefore, in line with the Government advice to act carefully, we feel it’s important to continue with certain measures to be on the safe side. So we will be continuing to follow the HSE COVID-SECURE control measures (Hands, Face, Space and Ventilation):

  • Please keep wearing a face covering if you can. All of our staff will be.
  • We are keeping enhanced hygiene and cleaning measures in place.
  • We will be respecting the social distancing rules.
  • All offices and branches will remain well ventilated.

We hope you can understand our decision and thank you for your cooperation with this.

Recruitment Open Evening - 21st June

We are very fortunate that our main customer base (local trades and the construction industry) have all continued to operate over this past year. This has meant that we ourselves have been able to continue (nearly) as normal.

How to build an outdoor kitchen

The pandemic has had a massive impact on how we socialise. If the past year has taught us anything, it’s the value of having attractive, comfortable outdoor spaces. This, plus a huge shift towards outdoor socialising, means that many of us have made the decision to invest in our gardens.

Outdoor kitchens are fast becoming very popular in stylish modern homes, as people look to bring the indoors outside and create a beautiful space for al fresco cooking and entertaining. We’ve put together a guide, along with the materials required, to help you build your own garden kitchen.
