Issued 4th November 2020

Coronavirus: Covid-19 continues to bring an unprecedented global challenge. Stiltz Ltd. has been and will continue to review activities daily to comply with the guidelines issued by the Government.

Stiltz is a proud member of the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) through whom we are co-ordinating industry efforts to keep the most vulnerable living safely in their own homes.

Reducing the instance of accidents within the home will help reduce stress on the NHS hospital care system. 

For existing customers, a Stiltz Homelift can be that lifeline to independence. Our home care support policy means Stiltz engineers continue to provide an essential service by maintaining customers’ lifts for ongoing safe, reliable and independent access while acting within Government guidelines.

You can contact our service and breakdown helpline any time, day or night, on 0330 053 5749.

For new homelift installations, we offer the options of a phone call, remote video consultation via tablet/laptop/smartphone, or email consultation. For those with an urgent in-home consultation need, we will minimise risk by following the latest Government guidelines.

Additional processes have been put in place to mitigate risk to you, our staff and the wider Stiltz community:

We will request confirmation that nobody at the property we are due to visit has Covid-19 or is defined as extremely vulnerable. If Covid-19 is present, or a person is isolating or deemed as extremely vulnerable, we will follow government advice.

All customer visits will be subject to additional sanitation measures. Stiltz installers/engineers will wash or sanitise their hands before entering your property and upon leaving. They will not offer to shake hands, will refuse offers of a beverage and will maintain the prescribed 2-metre distance.

All office and field-based staff will continue to be issued regular health and safety bulletins.

All field-based staff will confirm they are clear of symptoms before commencing their working day.

All staff who fall ill with Covid-19 or who are self-isolating will receive full pay during the period they are indisposed.

Stiltz will follow government advice at all times. We all owe a duty of care to our families, other employees, our customers and the rest of our community. Our priority is customer and staff safety whilst continuing to provide the necessary home care support to ensure vital independence.

Staying true to our Australian roots, Stiltz Lifts is delighted to announce it is now the proud sponsor of Yorkshire cricket club first team coach Jason Gillespie.

Jason is a right-arm fast bowler and has represented Australia at both Test and One Day International level.

Known by his nickname, Dizzy, he has played for South Australia, Yorkshire and Glamorgan before he retired in 2008 after a stint playing in the Indian Cricket League.

Jason made his Test debut against the West Indies at Sydney in 1996 and his One Day International debut against Sri Lanka at Colombo the same year.

He took 259 wickets in 71 Tests with an average of 26.13 and provided valuable support to the likes of Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath at Test series level.

The 40-year-old started coaching in Zimbabwe in 2010 and became first team coach of Yorkshire one year later.

During that time, he has taken Yorkshire from Division Two of the County Championship to the Division One title in three years.

Stiltz Lifts expanded its UK operations and opened a new office in Leeds city centre earlier this year.

The company’s Yorkshire base is headed up by industry specialist Michael Loftus, who has more than 20 years of experience in the mobility market.

The decision to open a new office in the centre of Leeds is a result of Stiltz Lifts experiencing rapid growth after introducing its unique range of electric home lifts to the United Kingdom in 2011.

We look forward to seeing how Jason and Yorkshire get on this season!
