COVID-19 Alert Level 2 Response Plan
As New Zealand moves into Alert level 2, the team at Origin Fire are continually committed to co-operate with our clients & contractors to enable meetings and site inspections. Most of the Origin Fire team will continue to work remotely under Alert Level 2. This will allow us to work without disruptions should there be a future change in alert levels. However, please note that staff required for site inspections will be available to conduct the inspections.
PROTOCOLS AT THE ORIGIN FIRE OFFICE
- We prefer virtual meetings, but if a client needs to visit our office to meet any of our team who are working from the office, they are required to call ahead to book an appointment.
To ensure effective contact-tracing requirements, on arrival our visitors are required to:
- Sign-in with their name and a contact phone number.
- Declare that they are not unwell.
- Sanitise their hands.
- Maintain a physical distance of 1m, or greater if reasonably possible.
- Avoid touching surfaces.
- Sign-out upon departure.
Deliveries to be accepted by one nominated person. Staff will avoid contact with delivery personnel and instruct the deliverer to place the package on the table in the entrance of the office. Staff receiving the package will wipe down the surface of the package before opening it.
PROTOCOLS FOR SITE VISITS & INSPECTIONS
Outlined on our previous post are the basic guidelines that the Origin Fire team will be following for site visits and inspections throughout Alert Level 2. We request that our clients assist us to ensure the continued well-being of everyone involved in the site inspections.
These are basic guidelines to ensure the safety of everyone involved, and we expect that Alert Level 2 protocols set out by the government are followed on site, as well as the guidelines set out by Origin Fire for visiting the offices.
We are hopeful, with the current updates and statistics regarding COVID-19 in New Zealand, that we will return to a new state of normalcy in the near future. In the mean time, please remain vigilant, safe and well.
