COVID-19 Return to Work0
To protect and ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our people in the period ahead we’ve introduced a number of key measures.
- followed and aligned our workforce strategies to government regulations relating to COVID-19
- welcomed work from home where possible to support staff and their families
- suspended all non-essential travel
- ensured the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) appropriate to the level of cleaning required
- adhered to the COVID-19 work method statements developed for cleaning operations.
As we return to our workplaces, so will germs. Here we outline the steps Pickwick and staff will need to take to maintain a healthy and safe environment for everyone.
All operational staff must remain vigilant on the workplace health and safety precautions that have been introduced over recent months.
We cannot afford to relax many of the safeguards that have been introduced. Doing so may lead to new infection rates and a return to more stringent controls being reintroduced.
As a key worker in the suppression of the disease, your work has been vital in helping Australians return to work and will remain crucial in helping more Australians back at work in the months ahead.
At each client site you work, it’s important you make yourself aware of their requirements and practices to return to work and help where you can. They may differ from client to client so be aware of different needs.
In addition, it is important you practice the principles set out below.
- Download the COVIDSafe app to help protect yourself and loved ones.
- Refrain from coming to work if you are unwell or show signs of fever, cough, sore throat or shortness of breath.
- Maintain social distancing (1.5 metres) at all times including when cleaning.
- Ensure you maintain correct hand hygiene.
- Take care to sanitise high-touch points.

Office Based Employees
For office-based employees, returning to work post COVID-19 will be a steady, methodical process. We must be mindful of our health and wellbeing and that of others continuously. Where mutually agreed, working home arrangements will continue to be allowed. As these are relaxed and more of us return to work we must be conscious of keeping our distance from others.
Social Distancing in the Office
To ensure we are continuously monitoring social distancing in an office environment a number sign shall be placed at the entrance to each office space. The number represents the maximum number of people who can occupy that space at one time.
Pickwick offices will adhere to the following precautions until advised otherwise.
- Download the COVIDSafe app
- Refrain from coming to work if you show signs of fever, cough sore throat and shortness of breath
- Maintain social distancing (1.5 metres)
