HRIA lobbies for ‘essential services’ classification
As the COVID-19 crisis continues and further restrictions are put in place, the HRIA, EWPA and TSHA remain committed to our members.
Regarding the definition of ‘Essential Services,’ the National Office has contacted all state and territory MPs as well as federal MPs whose portfolios include emergency services. From a more operational perspective, we have also contacted the state and territory Emergency Management Centres who coordinate resources and equipment in times of emergency.
We are currently lobbying to have hire companies included as an ‘essential service’ so members can provide the required equipment to various government departments, emergency services and essential infrastructure projects during a period of lockdown.
As new information and updates come to hand we will communicate them as they happen. The HRIA is committed to working on behalf of members throughout any working form home or lockdown scenarios.
As new information and updates come to hand we will communicate these with you. Any questions in the meantime, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the national office. However, due to high volumes of calls and emails, we do ask for patience.
