WINDOW BOYZ COVID-19 WORK POLICY
This policy is designed to mitigate the transfer of the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus) within the work environment.
WHAT WE DO TO KEEP YOU SAFE
1. If any of our staff develops any of the following symptoms, they will not attend work until cleared by a medical practitioner:
Additional symptoms may include headaches/nasal congestion/runny nose/diarrhea.
2. If any of our staff returns from overseas or has close contact with a known COVID-19 case, they will self-isolate for 14 days in line with Australian Government Regulations.
3. We practice social distancing. This means keeping a distance of at least 1.5m from another person.
4. We avoid physical contact and interaction, including handshaking, as the virus can be spread via moisture droplets from close interaction between people.
5. We avoid touching our eyes/nose/mouth.
6. We wash our hands continually for at least 20 seconds during the day, especially after:
• touching surfaces
• after blowing nose/coughing/sneezing
• close physical contact with someone who’s unwell
• after using the toilet
• before, during and after food preparation and eating.
7. We cover our mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve and are mindful of others around you when coughing or sneezing.
