COVID-19 - Green Options' Efforts to Deliver for our Clients

We are still working and adhering to the government guidelines.

Be assured, Green Options is being directed by the Australian Government Department of Health, the Federal Government and our State Government regulations regarding our actions for this pandemic. Green Options is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for everyone who works with us and with our Clients and Business Partners. We believe that health and safety must always be a business priority and that we all have a responsibility for the health, safety and welfare of our workers and those that our workforce comes into contact with. We will revert to business as usual as soon as official advice recommends.

For Your Information (FYI)

What we have instructed our staff to do:

  • To practice Social Distancing, to observe Good Health Hygiene and should they require it how to Self-Isolate.
  • To contact their Manager and stay at home if they are experiencing flu-like symptoms.
  • To contact their Managers if they have been in close contact with someone who has a confirmed case of COVID-19.
  • If they do get COVID-19 to follow medical advice and self-isolate as instructed by a Dr.
  • If they are tested for COVID-19 and they do not have COVID 19 they can return to work after they provide a medical certificate.
  • If any of our workers have had COVID -19 they must get a medical clearance from a Dr before returning to work.
  • In a team where one person is diagnosed with COVID-19, the whole team will self-isolate until all of the other team members have been tested and found not to have the virus or until they have finished the mandatory self-isolation requirement of 14 days.
  • Where a team is self-isolating due to a worker in that team being diagnosed with COVID-19 another team will be formed with different workers that have the same qualifications and skills to replace the team in isolation.
