THIS IS A CRITICAL UPDATE – PLEASE READ, UNDERSTAND AND ACTION THE FOLLOWING OR YOU WILL NO LONGER BE ELIGIBLE TO WORK FOR AJ GRANT
As you all know, The Victorian Premier announced the impending Stage 4 restrictions to business on Monday 3 August 2020 and based on the guidelines released, AJ Grant will conduct assessments, make safe and repairs under the strict guidelines of our COVID Safe Plan for ‘critical repairs to residential premises where required for emergency and safety’. This means we will continue to support our customers and ensure their homes are safe, secure and repaired.
The Insurance Council of Australia (‘ICA’) has met with the Victorian Government to discuss the stage 4 restrictions, with the Government verbally acknowledging the need for some of the critical insurance services to continue on-site work during these restrictions. The ICA has provided the Government with three proposed amendments to the current restrictions, including the proposed adoption of an ‘Addendum B – critical insurance services’. If adopted, these amendments will provide us with significantly greater clarity in respect to the insurance services that we can continue to provide.
AJ Grant will provide further clarity on the restrictions as soon as the Government either accepts, amends or rejects the proposed changes by the ICA.
Although we are continuing to assess and repair homes, we must ensure we are following the strict guidelines in place to ensure the care and wellbeing of our customers, staff and contractors. This is essential and remains the focus of our business.
