When our site owner and local authority partners entrust us with their sites, we take this responsibility very seriously. Over the years, TPA has refined its Duty of Care method into a proven model of site development, monitoring and maintenance. Here’s how it works:
Vigilance; We methodically and frequently monitor all our sites, checking for signs of deterioration in materials, untidy or defaced posters, vandalism or illegal fly posting. We capture digital shots of all site maintenance issues and maintain a log of before and after treatments. We also invite our site partners and the general public to notify TPA of any site issues needing our attention. Every TPA site has a clearly visible TPA sign displaying our contact details.
Response; The TPA team are on call practically 24/7 to respond rapidly to requests for site maintenance. Our fleet of TPA vans are on call-out at all hours throughout the week replenishing advertiser posters and maintaining sites. All in-bound requests for site inspection are acted upon within 12 hours – most often quicker. We always provide our site partners with a status (usually via email) on any site maintenance enquiries they have raised with us.
Cleanliness; TPA take the business of building, cleaning and maintaining sites extremely seriously. We go the extra mile to ensure vandalism and illegal fly posting is removed promptly and permanently to ensure the sites remain in good condition. Additionally we will remove illegal fly posting within proximity to our sites and due to our weekly posting cycle we frequently attend sites, enforcing our Duty of Care whilst regularly refreshing the poster campaigns.
Accountability; An essential part of our method is regular contact meetings with our partners. Communication is key allowing us collectively to measure our performance , troubleshoot any problems and identify new opportunities.
