COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Precautionary Protocol

Australian Disputes Centre
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Precautionary Protocol

Updated 22 March 2020

In response to the outbreak of COVID-19 ADC is implementing a range of precautionary measures. We thank you for your co-operation and support during this challenging time, so that together we can play our parts in mitigating the risks of cross infection.

Unwell, Recent Travel or Direct Contact

If you are feeling unwell (however mild your symptoms), have travelled into Australia from anywhere in the world during the past 15 days, or have come into direct contact with, or live with, someone who has COVID-19, we respectfully request that you do not enter the Centre, or attend ADC training and events anywhere in Australia.

If this applies to you, please call us on 02 9239 0700, to reschedule or make arrangements to attend via telephone or video-conference.

Health & Travel Declaration

On arrival at our Sydney Centre, or another venue for any training and events, all clients and visitors are required to complete a short health and travel declaration.

We urge you to be vigilant, follow your area Health Department guidelines for personal hygiene and if you are unwell, seek medical attention immediately and self-isolate until you have received medical clearance.

Hygiene and Prevention

ADC staff are working diligently to keep themselves and our clients safe and healthy. The Centre and any other venue is disinfected regularly during the day. This includes all door handles, light switches, tables, chairs and kitchen surfaces.

All visitors to our Sydney Centre and other venues hosting ADC events are asked to contribute to maintaining a healthy environment by exercising good personal hygiene practices, including:

  • Washing your hands immediately before entering, and regularly during your visit. Signage in bathrooms reminds everyone to wash methodically with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, and dry thoroughly with a clean towel.
  • On arrival, please ask our staff for antiseptic wipes for you to clean your phone and bags.
  • Covering any coughs and sneezes with your elbow or a tissue and dispose of tissues in a waste bin.
  • Do not touch your face (even when itchy!).

Government Restrictions on Meeting Space

The Australian Government has recently increased space requirements for meetings. Please contact us directly to discuss your space requirements at ADC Sydney.

ADC’s Business Continuity Plan

ADC has continuity plans in place to ensure that our services to you can continue to operate remotely if required. This includes staff working from home, telephone and video conferencing, and live simulcast and webinar capabilities.

In the event that ADC needs to close its premises, or postpone any of its training and events, we will update the website (please check regularly) and contact all of our current bookings directly to make alternative arrangements, including transfer to ADC Virtual – our new online Dispute Resolution platform, and ADC Connected for training and CPD programmes.
