Stage 4 Restrictions – Action Plan Update
feel we now have clarity on what has been a big week of announcements about Melbourne
stage 4 restrictions from the Victorian government e.g.
In response we have updated our COVID-19 Action Plan as follows.
We are continuing to deliver the essential
service of disability support and are taking every step to maintain
the safety of our Participants and Support Workers.
Support Worker wellbeing phone calls
As we have done previously, we have been personally reaching out to all members of our Support Worker team to ensure you are ok, and that you have everything you need to be able to do your role safely.
Support Worker Permitted Worker Permits
Hearth Support Workers should have received their “Permitted Worker Permit” via
email on Wednesday August 5. If you haven’t received one please email us @ email@example.com
In addition to the 1,800 Med Con surgical masks that we
purchased in late March 2020 and distributed to our Participants.
We purchased and couriered 10 surgical masks to every member of our entire Support Worker team last week.
Reusable Cotton on Foundation Masks
We have been able to despatch all reusable Cotton on Foundation Mask packs (2) this week. If you haven’t received your pack please email us @ Info@hearthaustralia.com.au so we can follow up on your delivery.
As previously advised all Hearth
Support Workers must wear a mask during the entirety of their shift to assist
their health and safety and that of the participant. If for any reason this is
not possible, you need to advise your relationship manager immediately.
COVID-19 Safe Protocols
Also as previously mentioned please remember to follow
our COVID-19 safe protocols i.e. Hearth – Employee
Illness Protocol and Hearth – Good
As always, we are here to help if you need any kind
of assistance please do not hesitate to contact me or any member of the Hearth
Team and we will do our best to assist.
