Freshcare Industry Advice – Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Published on March 17, 2020

Freshcare acknowledges the significant impact the coronavirus (COVID-19) is having on communities and individuals across the world. Our thoughts are with those who have been directly impacted by this crisis.

Fortunately, we have in place strong, effective and tested business continuity plans that allow our team to work remotely in case of the need to self-isolate, or due to the need to care for dependents in the event of school closures or ill health.

We do not expect there to be any significant disruption to the services that we provide, but we will continue to review our position and advise if there is a likely impact on our ability to continue to support the industry.

Freshcare has communicated a Management of Extraordinary Circumstances Policy in relation to COVID-19 directly with all approved certification bodies providing measures to minimise the potential impact to certified businesses. This policy provides guidance on audit rescheduling, temporary exemption and extension criteria. If your audit is scheduled or due within the next 6 months and could be impacted by this situation, please make contact with your certification body directly.

If you require any further information, please contact Freshcare on 1300 853 508 or email [email protected]

Please monitor the Freshcare Resources – Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) for additional resources and support materials to help your business during this time.
