Covid 19

Covid-19 has changed the way we approach daily tasks throughout the Mainswest organisation. The health and safety of our employees, contractors and the community comes first.

We’d like to reassure you that in response to the situation we are:

  • Following all Australian Health Department recommendations
  • Taking steps to minimise the risk of transmission of the virus among our employees, including directing anyone who is feeling unwell to stay away from work, to self-isolate on return from travel overseas as per the current Australian Health Department directions
  • Minimising visitors to our offices and site

Implementing Social/Physical distancing which includes:

  • Non-essential public gatherings, excluding household members, have been reduced to a maximum of two people
  • Minimise all unnecessary contact with others
  • Keep 1.5 metres away from others
  • Avoid physical greetings such as handshakes, hugs and kisses, sharing pens
  • Use tap and pay instead of cash

To prevent the spread we encourage practise good hygiene;

  • Cover your mouth for coughs and sneezes with your elbow
  • Dispose of tissues properly
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, including before and after eating and after going to the toilet
  • Use alcohol-based hand sanitisers if available
  • Regularly clean and disinfect surfaces
  • Clean and sanitise frequently used objects such as mobiles, keys and wallets
  • Limit interactions with the public

We constantly remind our employees that have the right to STOP WORK if they don’t feel safe
