OUR APPROACH TO COVID-19

We continue to operate normally as a COVID safe worksite, including our Melbourne safety training facility, where return to stay at home restrictions are in place. With the risks being quite varied across Australia, we have adopted our COVID controls mirroring the regional requirements. However, physical distancing principles still apply at all training centres regardless of the varied level of restrictions imposed by the state government. We are proud to have instilled the right behaviour amongst all our staff, trainees and visitors, keeping our facilities 100% COVID free.

We are standing with you now and for the future.

Shane Addis, ERGT’s Managing Director shares his view on how the organisation adapted and responded to the COVID-19 pandemic.
