Customer satisfaction is fundamental to what we stand for and aim to achieve because the success of our business is directly dependent on our ability to meet and consistently exceed our clients’ expectations and requirements.

We will realise this through an ongoing commitment to provide service to our clients, and by developing and implementing management systems that are open to continual improvement and consistent with our business objectives.

We will strive for efficiency and effectiveness in service delivery, building and maintaining strong business relationships with our clients.

The Purpose of this Policy is to set out Ontoit’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Protect Others and Stop the Spread

We can all help slow the spread of COVID-19 in Australia. To protect others you must:

  • practise good hygiene
  • do not attend restricted or high-risk facilities if you have Covid 19 symptoms
  • understand how to self-isolate if you need to (the guidelines are different in each state)

COVID-19 Vaccination

Staff and contractors are required to follow government directions. There is no mandatory requirement to be vaccinated to attend the workplace. There may be requirements to be vaccinated in the event we need to attend high risk or restricted facilities (hospitals, aged care facilities, research laboratories etc).

Working in the Office

The office operations are back to pre-covid access provisions and there are no restrictions for staff attending an office. There is no requirement to wear a mask in the office. Travel between offices, site-based activities, and face to face client, supplier and stakeholder meetings are permitted.  You need to be aware of the risks to specific groups. Information on specific groups can be found here. In the event you fall into one of these groups or your team members fall into these groups, you need to be aware of what their concerns may be.
