Covid Safe Aged Care Construction

When the pandemic took hold in March, Sensus acted quickly to implement enhanced safety measures to protect our valued stakeholders.

Our leadership team reviewed our already robust safety systems to include heightened requirements that would further protect our employees and clients from Covid-19. The team proactively implemented these increased health and safety measurements at our sites across Queensland and Northern NSW.

Covid-safe measures are particularly important at our aged care and retirement living sites. Stringent safety standards are implemented across all of our business units – even on larger scale works like multi-room aged care facility renovations in regional Queensland.

“Every Sensus employee and sub-contractor must follow specific safety steps when they arrive on site,” says Project Manager, Joel Quillan. “Wearing masks, using hand sanitizer and temperature checks are how we start each shift. Every step is an important part of working Covid-safe.”

A consistent safety approach is paramount to renovating the building’s 18 rooms, en-suites and common area. The safety measures also apply to sub-contractors who must follow stringent safety requirements and provide a Covid-19 safe work measure statement.

Innovation Thinking Keeping our Clients’ Safe

Sensus considers the overall health of our clients and is committed to minimising disturbance to residents where possible. On this site, our team thought outside of the box to figure out how to keep dust away from existing residents’ rooms. They determined a protective dust zip-wall would seal off the construction zone.

“The specialty dust screens utilise plastic sheeting with poles to completely separate the residents from the construction dust,” says Sensus Project Manager, Joel Quillan. “We’ve received excellent feedback that the living areas are dust free. Not a small task when rooms are on the other side of the construction zone.”
