I want to assure you that we at Adelaide Brighton Limited (ABL) are doing our best to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our people and ensure business continuity during these unprecedented times.
Our 130+ locations remain open as we continue to safely produce cement, lime, aggregates, ready-mix concrete, industrial minerals and concrete blocks and pavers to keep the mining and construction sector supplied with quality products.
To ensure the health and wellbeing of our employees and the communities in which we operate, we have implemented a range of safety and operational measures in-line with Governments and health authorities advice, including:
- Strict protocols for hygiene, cleaning and rules for personal interaction onsite, with training and reinforcement of these requirements;
- Segregating teams and conducting thorough clean downs between shifts;
- Ensuring social distancing onsite in observance of the recommended protocols;
- All non-operational employees are working remotely wherever possible;
- Establishing clear protocols for responding if/when an employee is suspected and/or confirmed to have been infected, including notification of authorities where required and contact tracing protocols;
- Undertaking audits and test drills at selected sites to ensure these site protocols are understood and readily executed;
- Eliminating face to face meetings wherever possible and restricting site visitors to essential requirements only;
- Installing heightened security and non-contact temperature monitoring at key operations to ensure access of healthy essential personnel only;
- Adhering to the newly introduced measures around self-isolation of all Interstate arrivals and banning all non-essential travel both intrastate and Interstate; and
- Supporting the mental health need of our employees and their families.
Our team have adopted all these measures and are working together to help stop the spread of the virus. Adelaide Brighton has no confirmed cases of COVID-19.
Please be assured we will continue to take all steps necessary to fulfill our role of safely manufacturing the construction materials that our valued customers need.
Please stay safe.
