High Grade Mechanical will prioritise the health and well-being of our workforce.
We have been working closely with our clients and whilst this situation is changing hourly, we are confident with the procedures in place and their ability to move quickly to isolate anyone who may require medical treatment or testing. We are also working hard to be mindful and inclusive of your family and loved ones during this time.
We continue to monitor the situation and manage our workforce based on advice from country-specific health authorities and governments and follow our client’s instructions.
There are now Federal Government recommendations in place to reconsider all non-essential international travel and a 14-day quarantine if you do and therefore you must inform us of planned international travel asap. We will continue to communicate with our workforce to follow hygiene, travel and quarantine recommendations from country-specific health authorities and governments.
We are reviewing our Business Continuity Plans for our operations and corporate offices to prepare for the potential spread of COVID-19.
At this point in time all our clients are advising there are no impacts to production based on COVID-19, however this could change.
To support our employees, their families and loved ones with any questions you may have or any support you may require we have created an online employee community Facebook Group (HGM Team, Family & Friends), to assist with any questions and support for one another. Additional to this we also have our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) free for all staff and their immediate family to use during these times.
If there’s anything you feel we can do to make you, your family and loved ones feel safer or there’s anything you’re unsure about, please let us know. In the meantime, we will update you as regularly as possible.
Current advice is, there is an extremely low chance of catching COVID-19 – however please rest assured, if anyone under current employment or sub-contracting to us does contract COVID-19, you are covered by our Accident and Sickness Group Plan – even if you have an accident or get sick out of hours, (terms & conditions do apply), so if you require further information on this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay safe, don’t panic, be prepared and discuss with your family and loved ones. All we ask is, please be patient whilst we all go through this unprecedented situation together. We are a family owned business, we have done FIFO, we have kids, I have been the FIFO wife at home with 2 babies.
Your well-being comes before profit.
You are welcome to contact us at any time with any suggestions, comments and decisions during these unchartered times and we promise, you will be listened to by US – the Owners – Jennie and Mark.
