FORSTER GAS – COVID-19 RESPONSE PROTOCOL
At Forster Gas in conjunction with Elgas our first priority is to get “Everyone Home Safely”. This extends to our people, our customers and the community.
We continue to plan, monitor and appropriately respond to potential impacts of COVID-19. This information provides a general update to reassure you we are working to minimise impact on our people and our customers.
Forster Gas & Elgas has initiated COVID-19 planning actions which include:
- Elimination of all non-essential international and domestic business travel
- Implementing a mandatory 14-day quarantine period for workers returning from overseas travel.
- Ongoing communication on good hygiene and infection control, and providing hand sanitizer where possible
- Implementing social distancing measures to limit virus transmission, and to reduce the risk associated with having key personnel working closely together. These measures apply to all of our staff across our offices, cylinder plants and driver networks
- Production measures and plans to promote surety of supply
- Restricting visitor access to sites
In terms of product supply, Forster Gas & Elgas does not foresee any immediate limitation on LPG availability in Australia. We are not limited to one supply source, with a diverse range of Australian and international sources from which we can procure LPG. We also have plans in place and are working with key suppliers to manage the impact on other critical items such as cylinders and other hardware.
If there is a continued escalation of the COVID-19 within a particular region or across Australia and New Zealand, Forster Gas & Elgas has business continuity plans in place to assist us in both mitigating the risk of supply disruptions due to employee illness, as well as being prepared to respond in the event of changing customer demands.
This information is general in nature and we will continue to implement appropriate plans on a business wide or local level as conditions dictate.
