With the government’s latest change to hard borders, it is good to clarify how this affects our service so we can continue to operate in a COVID19-safe way of working and living. Our focus on personal hygiene remains critical to ensuring the health and safety of everyone, we are all in this together. Hand washing and hand sanitising is expected of everyone before entering a dining hall for breakfast and dinner. This is a critical part of the process for everyone, please continue to hold yourself and your mates accountable so we can all keep each other safe. Additional serving utensil changes continue, and regular and thorough sanitisation of service areas will be carried out during mealtimes. Gloves and hand sanitiser will be available during service and we encourage the use of this additional PPE.
Our catering teams and all our clients have done a fantastic job looking after one another throughout the ongoing pandemic and I would like to extend our thanks to all of you.
SafeWA App for Contact Registers
On Wednesday, 25 November 2020, the State Government announced that particular Western Australian businesses and premises will be required to maintain mandatory contact registers for staff and patrons from Saturday, 5 December 2020 for the purpose of Department of Health COVID-19 contact tracing. We encourage you to download the free SafeWA app as an efficient and safe way to check-in when required. We keep strict and comprehensive registers of all in house guests and all external diners will be captured on the app or by manual registers.
More information on the app is available from the WA Government website
As always, it’s important we don’t become complacent with personal hygiene. Please ensure you wash your hands regularly, use hand sanitiser and cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
The two square metre per person rule remains in place and maintain a 1.5 metre distance from others where possible.
Finally, the best thing you can do to look out for your mates is to stay away from work if you’re unwell, regardless of the severity of symptoms.
Thank you once again for your ongoing commitment to safety throughout the pandemic. We will continue to keep you updated on further changes announced by the WA Government, including any changes to the West Australian border restrictions.
Stay safe and well.
