AVID Property Group has recognised that the COVID-19 pandemic is a public health emergency, that all actions in respect of COVID-19 should be founded in expert health advice. For this reason the AVID WHSE Procedure to manage COVID-19 operates under principles agreed to and implemented by both Federal and State Governments.

Our COVID-19 procedure is designed to ensure AVID:

  • Has a plan in place to respond to the issues created by the COVID-19 pandemic;
  • Reviews our exposure and infection control policies and procedures, actively promote social distancing, good hand and respiratory hygiene and increase cleaning of common areas within the work environment;
  • Develops and implements safe systems of work that take into account directions and advice provided by health authorities; and
  • Keeps monitoring the COVID-19 situation as it develops, relying on information from authoritative sources such as public health authorities.

AVID Property Group uses a systematic approach to the management of major incidents, emergencies and crises that seriously affect or have the potential to affect the group’s people (including shareholders, employees, contractors, consultants, partners and customers), business operations, assets and/or reputation. Protocols outlined in our COVID-19 WHSE Procedure describe AVID’s response to an extraordinary occurrence, namely the outbreak of COVID-19 virus.

“All AVID staff have reacted positively to the changes required of the business to minimize a potential outbreak of COVID-19 in the workplace. Our stakeholders have also managed to pivot their business’ rapidly to ensure we are all working together to comply with both state and federal legislative requirements to minimize infection rates in the country”. – Duncan Corness, National WHSE Manager

LATEST STATE UPDATES

QLD

Following the recent announcement from the Queensland State Government on Monday 11 January on the new restrictions for the Greater Brisbane area, our Sales and Information Centres located within the affected area will reopen on Tuesday 12 January at 10am with additional safety measures in place.

To ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our customers, residents and staff, in addition to our increased and frequent cleaning practices, we will have extra hand sanitiser and disposable face masks available. As required by the Queensland State Government, our team and all visitors are required to wear a face mask when inside our sales and information centres and when socially distancing isn’t possible.

Please note that the Sphere and Harmony Sales and Information Centres are not located within the Greater Brisbane area and therefore, such measures are not required at these locations.
