FOAMEX IS A COVID SAFE BUSINESS

Foamex’s COVID-Safe Procedure – updated 16 July 2021

COVID-19 continues to present a unique and challenging environment on many different levels. The snap lockdown across Victoria being the most recent setback, with stage 3 Restrictions in force.

Here at Foamex we are closely monitoring the situation and following the direction from The Victorian Government, and The Department of Health regarding our approach towards COVID-19.

As a critical service provider to the construction, food and medical industries, it is our intention to put the health and safety of all people first, whilst ensuring that we maintain serviceability and productivity at our manufacturing plants across the country.

Foamex is committed to the utmost Health and Safety and wellbeing of all its employees and the community, and has implemented strict practices and controls to maintain a COVID-19 safe workplace.

The following are some of the continued efforts we have employed to keep our communities safe:

All Foamex staff and contractors have received an updated briefing on the coronavirus-related workplace health and safety policies. This includes upgraded restrictions across Victoria. The importance of social distancing, proper hygiene practices, wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), in addition to the signs and symptoms of the virus have been reinforced.

Foamex is registered as a COVID Safe Business. We have developed a COVID-19 Safety Plan across all factories.

  • We are strictly adhering to transport and freight practices, and obtaining the correct permits to cross state borders.
  • A QR Code Check- In Procedure is in place for traceability 
  • All delivery drivers must continue to wear PPE at all times, and follow a strict contactless delivery practice. As such, practices such as signing for deliveries have ceased.
