ERGT follows strict health and safety protocols and continues to follow all Government health advice and maintain operations under the direction of our Pandemic Preparedness & Response Plan and our COVID-19 Safety Management Plan. Where necessary we enforce strict additional safety protocols in place to protect our trainees, trainers and staff,  including mandatory facemasks, only key staff on site, physical distancing of the 2sqm rule, temperature checking on arrival and hand sanitisation stations.

KEY DOWNLOADS – COVID-19 STRATEGY

In January 2020, ERGT Australia formed its COVID-19 Incident Management Team, drawing in expertise from our own internal emergency management function and industry experts to guide the organisation through this pandemic.

An abridged version of ERGT Pandemic Preparedness Response Plan and the Management Plan is also available that reflects the depth of our pragmatic strategy and managing the risks of the pandemic within all our facilities.
