COVID-19 Update: Metropolitan Melbourne

We continue to closely monitor the developing situation and restrictions being implemented to protect health and safety as the COVID-19 pandemic escalates.

There has been an increase of community transmission in Melbourne, and as a result all postcodes in Metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire have gone back into stage 3 lockdown for six weeks.

Please see some important updates below specific to our customers in Melbourne.

We are here for you

The recent announcement made by the Victorian State Government to shut down non-essential services still does not apply to the building and construction industry.

We continue to operate our glass processing and logistics facilities as usual with hygiene, social distancing and prevention measures in place.

Safe Distancing and Social Hygiene

All team members who can work remotely are continuing to do so, and we are supporting our staff to do this.

We have no reported cases of COVID-19 in the business. However, we continue to remind all staff who are essential workers on site to ensure they stay home if unwell, practice regular hygiene, social distancing and avoid face to face contact and personal visits with customers.

We have also implemented strict rules for all Clayton site visitors, all visitors must check in with a designated Manager responsible for the site prior to arrival. Please ensure you adhere to this and contact your local representative before making your way to site.

Is there anything we need to know about the processes in your business?

We are aware your business may also be applying safety processes to protect the health and safety of your staff during this time. If there are any specific processes we must follow when delivering to your site or business please contact your regular Viridian Glass Account Manager or Representative to advise us of these procedures to ensure we can work with you to minimise risk during this time.

This is a constantly changing situation, and we will continue to keep our customers up to date as needed. 

If you have any questions please contact your regular Viridian Representative or call 1800 847 434.
