Mackie Plumbing has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and information as it becomes available. Currently the risk to each individual in Perth is low, and the majority of people who get the virus will recover.
However, we need to work together as a community to reduce the spread, minimise the risk for those who are in high-risk categories (elderly and those with pre-existing medical conditions) and relieve the pressure on our medical system.
We continue to provide plumbing works and remain up to date and in line with the Australian Government’s recommendations.
In an effort to minimise risk to our employees, sub-contractors and customers, Mackie Plumbing has implemented the below in conjunction with advice from WHO & Department of Health (DoH) to combat the risk of Coronavirus:
- Wash hands frequently with soap & water or use an alcohol-based hand rub.
- Practice respiratory hygiene when coughing and sneezing, cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – discard tissue immediately into a closed bin and clean hands as per above.
- Maintain social distancing by upholding at least 1.5m distance with other people.
- Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
- Avoid shaking hands or touching other person/s.
- Where possible reduce face to face meetings to phone hook ups, if meetings are required, only have the essential person/s in attendance.
- Avoid large gatherings, particularly indoors.
- No non-essential visitor/s to site.
So that we are better placed to asses any risks and ensure the health and safety of our staff, customers and partners that you update us immediately if you answer yes to the following questions and have been or will be in contact with any Mackie Plumbing employee;
- Have you travelled to or returned from oversees in the last 14 days?
- Have you been in close contact with someone who has a confirmed case or suspected case of coronavirus in the last 14 days?
- Have you been directed or recommended within the last 14 days to self-isolate by any public health authority or any medical professional?
- Do you have any reason to suspect that you are otherwise at risk of : having been exposed to COVID-19 within the last 14 days; or, having become infected with COVID-19 even if currently asymptomatic
