ONCALL’s response to new COVID-19 postcode restrictions.

The Victorian Government recently announced that given the increasing numbers of COVID-19 in particular locations, local lockdowns would be imposed for suburbs in the North and West as of 11:59pm Tuesday 30th June. We recognise and understand the importance of managing these isolated COVID-19 outbreaks and protecting your staff, participants and clients, and we also need to ensure ONCALL’s staff are kept safe. 
 
ONCALL are experts in providing flexible workforce solutions, and there are several ways ONCALL can assist and support your operations:

  • For services in the restricted postcode areas, ONCALL has 130 staff residing in the restricted postcodes – these staff can be made available to you as your own dedicated workforce, quarantined to only work in your nominated sites within the restricted postcode areas. 
  • For services outside the restricted postcode areas, ONCALL has more than 1,000 staff available within the Melbourne Metropolitan area that reside outside the restricted postcodes – these staff can be made available to you as your own dedicated workforce, quarantined to only work in your nominated sites. 
  • ONCALL’s highly trained, reliable and skilled workforce have all completed the Australian Government COVID-19 Infection Control training and follow stringent hygiene practices.
  • ONCALL’s workforce are regularly updated with all Federal and Victorian Government COVID-19 advice, guidelines and restrictions. 

These are challenging times for the sector, and it’s important that we work together to get through this. To discuss your specific needs and how ONCALL can support you during this next phase of restrictions, please contact Troy Aylen, Executive Manager Casual Staff Services by email on taylen@oncall.com.au or (03) 9896 2468.

Kind regards,
