Leighton O’Brien updated COVID-19 response

As at 26 May, 2020

To:  Our customers, suppliers and other stakeholders

Leighton O’Brien continues to place the highest priority on the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, as well as the wider community. We continue to implement and adhere to our response plan to deal with circumstances related to the Coronavirus pandemic, including:

  • Ongoing communication and advice to all staff regarding hygiene practices, general precautions, travel policy and keeping up to date on the latest COVID-19 information from official Government sources.
  • Leighton O’Brien offices continue to remain closed in accordance with local COVID-19 restrictions. When the advice is “Work from home if you are able to”, LOB offices will remain closed. All LOB staff have full capability to work remotely. This includes complete and secure access to our systems and digital records, thus ensuring business continuity and the highest levels of service. This same capability will also be invoked if a LOB staff member is required to self-isolate in response to contact with a person confirmed to have COVID-19.
  • When restrictions are relaxed to the point that Leighton O’Brien offices can open, procedures will be followed in line with government guidelines, such as strict social distancing and enhanced cleaning and disinfection. Guidelines will be taken from Safe Work Australia office guidelines.
  • When LOB Offices are open, the following staff will continue to work from home:
    • Any staff experiencing COVID-19 symptoms (even if mild)
    • Any staff who have been in contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case in the last 14 days
    • Any staff who is vulnerable to COIVD-19, or have household members who are at high risk from COVID-19
  • To further reduce the impact of a potential COVID-19 infection of a staff member, a reduced number of employees will be working in the office at any one time. Staff will be divided in two teams, with each team attending the office on alternate days. This will minimise the opportunity for cross-team infection. Only a very small number of staff will be able to attend the office on any day.
  • Leighton O’Brien site technicians are being supplied with surgical masks to wear at sites identified to have an elevated coronavirus risk. In such a scenario, technicians practice strict social distancing and are able to work at a site without physical contact with site staff.
  • International and interstate travel for Leighton O’Brien staff has been significantly restricted for the duration of the pandemic. Travel to countries designated L4 by either the Australian Government (https://www.smartraveller.gov.au) or the US Government (https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/traveladvisories/traveladvisories.html/) is banned for all LOB staff. Travel to other countries is restricted to critical trips only and requires authorisation from the CEO or COO.

Leighton O’Brien will continue to closely monitor the coronavirus situation and update our coronavirus policy accordingly.
