Workers have told us that some staff were never given any personal protective equipment and that the PPE that was provided came directly from staff at their own cost.
We wrote to Stacey Alexander about this and she told us:
We advise any staff who still require PPE to contact the office to let them know what they need and arrange a pickup time.
Anyone who purchased PPE themselves because they were unaware there was an account setup fore that purpose, should send the receipts to management and ask to be reimbursed.
PPE is an important aspect of any support worker’s role – now more than ever – so anyone who needs it should chat to their WHS officer or management asap.
