As Victoria continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, OCVM Group
remains committed to ensuring the health and wellbeing of all members of
our strata communities.
In response to the Stage 4 government guidelines pertaining to businesses
restrictions, OCVM Group have rolled out their COVIDSafe Plan to each
Owners Corporation and we require your ongoing co-operation to assist in
best protecting our Owners Corporation's from an outbreak of coronavirus.
From midnight Wednesday 5th August 2020, all contractors
permitted to attend in line with the Permitted Worker Scheme will be
required to familiarise themselves with the attached Contractor
Guidelines, complete the COVID-19 self-declaration form prior to each
site attendance and confirm date and time of attendance with our office
to assist in the update of our contractor register for each Owners
Corporation. This will assist in ensuring our office can provide a safe
working environment, so we can limit the number of contractors attending
site per government restrictions and make contact in the event of a
positive test result at that site.
All continuing employees must carry a Work Permit on their person at all
times, including travel time. Information pertaining to permits can be
obtained here: https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/permitted-worker-scheme-covid-19
.Contractors must adhere to social distancing and ensure they have
adequate personal protective equipment (PPE) that is worn at all times,
when servicing common property. It is the expectation of all continuing
trades that their employer has a COVIDSafe Plan in place enabling
continuance of safe trading.

is revised from the current Stage 4 restrictions. This includes, lawn

Wherever possible, we ask that a designated staff member be appointed to
service one individual site throughout Stage 4 restrictions, and that the
number of staff attending site are limited in line with the stipulation
of one worker per four square meters of enclosed workspace.OCVM will
request all residents avoid contact with trades wherever possible and
that any requests or information be directed to our office. We kindly
request that all attending contractors do the same should they have any
requests or information that needs to be relayed to residents.
Please be advised it is a requirement of Worksafe that if
yourself, or a staff member, test positive for coronavirus, that our
office is notified. OCVM Group's have a response procedure to
any positive test within our Owners Corporations that ensures all
residents and attending trades are notified as soon as possible. Should a
resident, or visitor, to the Owners Corporation you service test positive
you will also be notified by our office.
OCVM Group values the importance of providing a safe and secure living
and working environment and thank you for your ongoing support in
ensuring the same.
