• Addressing pre-screening, social distancing, enhanced hygiene and WHS requirements
• Training our staff on new health and safety procedures specific to our operation
• Creation of Business Cleaning policies, procedures or checklists tailored to our business
• Risk Register updated to include COVID-19
• COVID Safe Industry Plan Checklist to protect our staff, our guests, and our business that we are adhering to
How we are keeping our passengers safe
• Organiser advised prior to arrival with Pre-screening policies they can expect.
• Completion of a pre-screening questionnaire before travel for each passenger.
• Passengers to practice good hand hygiene
• Collecting and keeping of staff and passenger names and details (in compliance with privacy policies
• Staff and passengers asked to stay home and not be transported if they are unwell or experience any symptoms consistent with COVID-19
• Staff and guests in the ‘at risk’ COVID-19 groups advised to stay home until otherwise advised by the Australian Government
• Staff and passengers asked to stay home if they have been in a declared COVID-19 hotspot or travelled overseas within 14 days
• Restricting passenger numbers on vehicles as per Government requirements
