APV to adopt a flexible workforce model and calls on Gov’t to keep Australian Manufacturing running

Share This Post

Today at APV we consulted with our staff to keep everyone informed of the latest impacts of the Covid19 health and economic shocks.

The business is fighting hard to ensure that we protect the health and well-being of our employees, and keep them employed through this crisis. To this end, APV has called on Gov’t to keep Australian Manufacturing operations open on the pre-requisite that appropriate Health risk mitigation measures are in place to protect their workforce. In effect, our business is already in a Lock Down to keep CoronaVirus out of the workplace and to ensure our staff is safer coming to work than going to the shops. Our workforce wants to come to work and this is certainly a superior outcome for their overall health and well-being. Here, within the APV community, we can ensure that all employees are supported.

In consultation with our employees, we are implementing new flexible workforce models. These are significant workplace changes and our staff is supporting this and embracing measures that will allow us to maintain employment levels, ensure people get paid, and that APV pushes through this crisis. This will ensure that we in turn meet the needs of our customers and that we stay open for business.

APV has a significant amount of work on ranging from new product development testing, and testing of child-seats that keep our children safe, through to production of seatbelts for essential services transport equipment. We make a major contribution to road safety outcomes and our business is about keeping you safe. Therefore APV and our staff are absolutely committed to remaining open and supporting our customers and staff during the period of this crisis.

Stay safe and well during these difficult times.
