Our Response to mitigate the risk of a COVID-19 infection:
This pandemic is a quickly evolving situation and as easing of restrictions happen, we need to be vigilant on the safety of our customers and staff. As a result we are evaluating our Trips and Tours for the remainder of 2020 on a weekly basis.
Fords Shepparton Bus Service Pty Ltd / Keith Ford Nominees Pty Ltd (FORDS) will always follow the advice and local laws to protect workers and visitors and employees.
FORDS have a duty to provide and maintain, so far as is reasonably practicable, a working environment that is safe and without risks to the health of employees. This includes identifying risks to health or safety associated with potential exposure to COVID19 – and taking measures to control these risks.
Visitors to FORDS
All visitors and customers will be required to comply with social distancing rules. It is preferred that all customer or supplier enquiries to be done by means of a phone call to the office.
If a visit is required, you will need to provide your contact details, so in the event of a confirmed case, contact tracing can be done more efficiently. Your details will remain on file for 28 days, then securely destroyed.
