| News

Health and safety in the workplace is a basic human right, and we at Right at Home Australia couldn’t agree more.

Wednesday 28 April is World Day for Safety and Health at Work and Workers' Memorial Day. The day provides an opportunity to reflect on how to prevent work-related occupational diseases, deaths, injuries, and illnesses. It is also a day to remember those that have died from a work-related injury or illness particularly in the health industry context, COVID-19.

In the face of COVID-19, the International Labor Organization headquartered in Geneva, has this year called for businesses to invest in resilient occupational safety and health (OSH) systems with an emphasis on anticipation, preparedness and response to crises. 

As Australia's leading provider of quality home care, Right at Home's response to COVID-19, is to prioritise the health and wellbeing of our caregivers, clients and community.

Right at Home continues to monitor and follow guidelines set by the Federal Department of Health, the World Health Organisation and local and state health agencies in the delivery of homecare during the Coronavirus crisis.

We have put stringent COVID-19 health and safety measures in place to help protect our staff and clients. Right at Home is in constant communication with health authorities and performs regular check-ins with staff to ensure that they are aware of the latest policies and requirements to maintain the health of our clients and safety for themselves.  Read more about our COVID-19 protocols on our website.

We have witnessed the incredible sacrifice that health care workers have made globally since the pandemic’s inception. It is difficult to articulate our thanks in the face of such adversity.

However, we offer our humble appreciation and gratitude to our authorities and front-line workers for keeping us healthy and safe.
