Recent outbreaks of COVID-19 in locations in which transport specialist Centurion operates have gone into lockdown.
As an essential service operating with heightened awareness of the Delta strain of the virus, Centurion has reactivated its COVID-19 Business Rick and Continuity Plan.
It will be applicable for operations based in Perth, Darwin, Brisbane and Townsville to ensure the utmost safety of all Centurion staff and stakeholders, and to mitigate the potential transfer of the virus the company said in an online statement.
The plan includes: a split shift system having been implemented for all operational areas; all non-essential office staff are working from home, where possible.
Office staff are abiding by the 2m rule and wearing masks as mandated according to Centurion.
Freight is still to be dropped off during depot allocated times and all pick-up and delivery drivers are to wear masks upon arrival onsite as they will not be provided with failure to do so resulting in the driver being refused entry.
Temperature checks for all personnel will also be mandated on site with no external parties allowed on site.
Centurion has asked that anyone who has been to one of the known hot spots not to attend their sites and to follow the health advice as instructed by the corresponding state government.
