Supporting 'essential services'

KAESER AIR SERVICE & COVID-19 Level 4
Update 24 March 2020

KAESER AIR SERVICE

In light of the impending move to COVID-19 Level 4 from 11.59 pm, 25 March 2020, please find below important information about the measures we have put in place to ensure that we can continue to support ‘essential services’ in the days and weeks ahead.

Continued on-site service support for ‘essential services’

We are closely following updates from the Government. At time of writing the advice is that Entities and their workers carrying out services considered essential will stay open. This also includes entities in their supply chains. As such - until we are given any guidance to the contrary - our Service Technicians will be available to support the compressed air requirements of ‘essential services’ throughout the COVID-19 Level 4 period.

Stock, spare parts and hire

Our warehouse is well stocked with compressors and spare parts and don’t forget that we hire compressors if you require a short-term increase to your existing compressed air supply.

A message from KAESER Compressors NZ

COVID-19
Update 23 March 2020

Peter Eckberg, Kaeser Compressors

KAESER Compressors NZ Ltd takes the health and safety of its employees and customers with the utmost seriousness and has implemented extensive preventive measures effective immediately and also moving forward.

Mitigation measures to protect our employees

At our facility;

  • We have communicated to all employees rules of conduct to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. As a constant reminder, this communication has also been printed and is displayed in our offices, kitchen, entrance to toilets and workshop.
  • We are regularly communicating COVID-19 updates to our employees, including Government self-isolation guidance and what they should do if they feel unwell.
  • We have doubled the cleaning of our facility.
  • Additional hand sanitation has been implemented with the provision of antibacterial hand sanitiser to all employees.
  • We have provided employees with antibacterial wipes and instructions on additionally wiping down their desktop surface, keyboard / laptop and phone(s).
  • Social distancing measures as per current Government requirements have been enforced, including spreading out our office staff’s working areas. This may change and we continue to refer to the prevailing Government guidelines.
  • We have enforced additional social distancing measures with our Service Technicians. Service Technicians time in our facility is now limited. We are rotating our Service Technicians so that we do not have more than one Service Technician in our facility at any one time. As an additional preventive measure, Service Technicians are not allowed access to our main office space and office staff are not allowed access to our Service Technician’s workshop space.
  • A policy of restricted access at our facility for visitors and contractors has been implemented.

In the field;

  • Our Service Technicians are now carrying antibacterial hand sanitiser with them and using this before entering and after exiting customer sites.
  • Our Service Technicians continue to wear disposable plastic gloves when they carry out service work and use a new pair at each customer’s site they attend.
  • As an additional precautionary measure when cleaning the compressor after service work is complete, our Service Technicians are using disinfectant spray and paper towels. This includes disinfecting the service doors and compressor control pad.
  • Our Service Technicians are now carrying face masks with them and will wear this if required and requested for a site visit.
  • Our Service Technicians are practicing social distancing and will follow any further measures you have put in place at your site. They will not shake hands with anyone.
  • If a Service Technician feels unwell before a scheduled site visit, they will inform us and we will either arrange for a different Service Technician to attend, or rearrange your visit with you.

Steps that will be taken to provide continuity in case of crisis escalation (positive case detection)

All employees are aware of the Government’s self isolation guidance. We are also constantly updating them with advice from the Government and Health Authorities regarding symptoms and what to do. 

If a KAESER employee is displaying the symptoms of Coronavirus, or has come into contact with someone that has tested positive, they have been advised to immediately follow Government and Health Authority guidelines and to notify us. We will inform you as soon as is practically possible if they have been on your site as well as advise you of the outcome of their test results.

KAESER Compressors NZ Ltd remains fully committed to supporting your business through these unprecedented times. If you have any questions or require any further information on this matter, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
