Providing a COVID-safe environment

 

8 November 2021

We want to provide clients both clarity and options in regard to how our clients and friends of the Firm can meet with our teams.

Please note anyone entering our CBD office will required to be fully vaccinated.

  • We will continue to offer clients virtual meeting facilities as an alternative, including when their colleagues may be coming into our office.

  • All clients choosing to visit our offices will be asked to either check-in on the NSW Services app with a vaccination certificate or show their certificate.

  • We will not store or record any of that information.

  • Any of our lawyers attending a client’s workplace must be fully vaccinated.

The health and safety of our people, clients and those they come into contact with, has always been and remains paramount.

We’re aligning all aspects of our Sydney office workplace to the practical and well thought out Safe Work Australia guidelines. These cover everything from building access to sanitisers to social distancing.

What we are doing:

  • Limiting our meeting room capacity and keeping doors open if possible

  • Practising physical distancing

  • Ensuring good hygiene through washing/sanitising hands and using good cough/sneeze etiquette

  • Our air conditioning is operating at 100% capacity

  • Providing refreshments in a COVID safe way

What you can do:

  • Please do not attend or remain at our office if you are feeling unwell

  • Practice good hygiene by regularly washing/sanitising hands and using good cough/sneeze etiquette

  • Practicing physical distancing

  • Follow room capacity guidelines as shown on our meeting room doors

  • Provide us with your details by entering them into the onsite register

Being safe though is more than that. It’s recognising different people will have differing levels of anxiety as business reopens. That means our clients and employees should feel welcome to express personal concerns or raise issues or ideas that could make them feel more comfortable in their daily interactions with the firm. For clients this covers whether you are coming to our office or we are visiting you. Consultation and understanding will be just as important, if not more so, than posters and guidelines as people return to traditional office spaces.
