Mission Ready is more than ever committed to the health and well-being of our customers, employees and our community
As the COVID 19 situation evolves, we must prepare for a post Covid-19 era. The new era will bring new hope and new ways of working. There will be new opportunities if you choose to see the potential in this new world.
This future requires bold action and preparation. Technology has the power to accelerate, improve and contribute to better lives. We exist to provide you with the skills, tools and resources to help you navigate this new world through a career in tech. Invest in yourself, develop new skills and get ready to lead new ideas and solutions. Our sessions are both on-site and virtual.
As global concern about the current COVID-19 outbreak grows, we’re doing our best to keep everyone healthy and safe in the workplace while also minimising the disruptions to our day-to-day operations.
We understand the current outbreak is worrying, and we want to take a moment to share the ways we can all help keep the workplace safe, as well as the steps we’ll take as an organisation.
Our office will remain open, having said that since the virus is highly contagious, we all need to:
– Wear a facemask at all times when on-site at our office premises
– Stay home if we are sick
– If you are currently on an industry experience and have been on-site with your sponsor then please make sure you know the covid19 policies of your workplace and work with your sponsor to find a suitable solution. Also please feel free to contact Seann or me if you need to discuss your circumstances further.
If you experience cold, flu-like symptoms, or simply a running nose, please stay home. Because the coronavirus produces cold-like symptoms in 80% of infected individuals, it’s important to remain at home when ill regardless of how mild your symptoms are.
Refrain from visiting the workplace after travel to an infected city or high-risk country
The virus spreads easily from person to person. Please stay home and follow Government guidelines on self-isolation if you’ve had contact with a confirmed case or potentially infected person.
– Stay home if we’ve had contact with a potentially infected person
– Refresh ourselves on proper cough and sneeze hygiene: Cover your nose or mouth with a tissue or your elbow — not your hand — and discard the tissue immediately after.
– Wash our hands regularly: Proper hand washing remains the best way to prevent transmission of the virus. Wash your hands after using the restroom, touching your face, eating, drinking, coughing, or sneezing, and at regular intervals throughout the day. Use warm soapy water and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds, or the time it takes to sing “Happy Birthday” twice. Alternatively, alcohol-based hand sanitiser is effective as well.
– Stop touching our faces: Fomites — objects that we commonly touch — are the main way the disease is spreading. Reduce the chance of transmission from a fomite, like a doorknob, by keeping your hands away from your eyes, nose, and mouth.
– Rely on virtual communication when possible: In an effort to cut down on human-to-human contact, please cancel in-person meetings and communicate via videoconferencing or phone calls where possible.
– Training onsite is still available to learners: Please wear a mask if you are training onsite.
In turn, the measures we’re taking as a company will be:
– Follow guidelines: We will be following guidelines from the Government. Red setting guidelines are now being activated. The poster attached shows what this means.
– Vaccine pass essential to come onsite: All all staff and learners who intend to come on-site must confirm they are Double vaccinated and well to come onsite. No one without a vaccine pass and access can enter the premises. We will be implementing strict locks and alarms from Monday onwards.
– Increase supplies of sanitiser wipes: We’ll ensure the workplace has ample sanitiser wipes and ask that employees regularly wipe down their workstations. Provide ample hand sanitiser and tissues around the office
– Please cough and sneeze into tissues and immediately discard them. Use hand sanitiser after coughing, sneezing, touching your face, and regularly throughout the day.
– Temporarily ban visitors and non-essential personnel from the property: This includes personal visitors and non-essential business visits from vendors, clients, and suppliers.
– Take action if school or public transport is cancelled: In the case of these events, the company will evaluate and take action.
– Maintain daily cleaning: Daily cleaning will take place at our office. Deep cleaning will be initiated if we suspect or find anyone who is unwell has been to the office
– Flexible remote work arrangements: We support work from home. Please join us from home if that works for you.
– Maintain distance in the workplace: to ensure safety let’s make sure we keep distance and leave one chair next to you empty
Of all these measures, we cannot stress enough the importance of staying home when you’re sick. Please do your part to keep everyone safe and healthy by refraining from coming into work with symptoms even if you “feel fine.”
As always, please contact us with any questions or concerns.
Thanks for your continued support in this uncertain time.
