COVID-19

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.

 

All non-permitted trades must immediately cease until Government guidance is revised from the current Stage 4 restrictions. This includes, lawn mowing in which the cessation of does not adversely affect the health of residents. 

 

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.
