Social Distancing Guidelines at our Car Wrecking Facility in Wellington
Welly wreckers are committed to caring for the health and well-being of our partners and customers and playing a constructive role in supporting local health officials and government leaders. Read about the latest decisions being made by the company and the actions being taken in preparation for COVID-19.
Also, like everyone else, your Welly wreckers team is adjusting to the new norm of social distancing. This is a challenge for a business like ours, but our employees are up to the task! In addition to the extra cleanings at our Wellington auto wreckers facility and careful attention to sanitizing “high touch” areas on cars, we are doing our best to maintain a respectful distance. This is to keep both you, our valued customers, and our own employees safe.
Some insights on social distancing are below:
The medical experts define social distancing as it applies to COVID-19 as “remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings, and maintaining distance (approximately 2 meters) from others when possible.” How to practice social distancing:
- Avoid hugs and handshakes
- Remain 6-feet of separation between yourself and others
- Refrain from going to events that could be considered mass gatherings
- Continue to wash hands and take the same health precautions you would with any other illness, such as the cold or flu.
WHAT’S HAPPENING OUT THERE?
There is much concern and people are altering their lives to protect themselves from COVID-19, Airlines are increasingly finding airplanes half-empty with AirNZ and JetStar already canceling flights, the CEO taking a direct salary cut and talk of staff being stood down, the Summer Olympics in Tokyo has been postponed to summer of 2021 and many tour operators are already finding it hard to make ends meet.
Without wanting to predict doom and gloom for car removal and auto dismantling it is only natural that a downturn in business could follow.
A lot of the issues we are facing are driven by fear caused partly by continued media focus and hype with perhaps a gap in knowledge of what Coronavirus is and how we can manage a potential outbreak.
WHAT CAR WELLY WRECKERS ARE DOING IN LIGHT OF COVID19 PANDEMIC?
Prevention is much preferred than cure – we are prepared for whatever might happen whilst we ride this current storm. Welly wreckers are helping our team by giving them clarity around the coronavirus, We are implementing stringent sanitation procedures and make sure they are followed. Such as washing hands with soap and water for as frequently as needed and before and after every customer. Avoid touching their eyes, nose, and mouth, cough into their armpit or tissue and immediately wash hands. If any employee or client is sick, they should stay home and should contact health authorities. Again the Ministry of Health website has excellent latest information around this.
If you have any questions or issues, we welcome your feedback.
