Covid-19 Policies and Procedures
As the global outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve throughout the world, our team at Fresh Flowers™ are taking steps to minimise the risk of exposure to our homeland, here in Australia.
We've introduced additional health and safety protocols to take care of our team, valued customers and lucky recipients.
These recommendations have been implemented with regard to suggestions made by the World Health Organisation and Australian Government bodies, including but not limited to:
- Delivery drivers have been given 'authority to leave' for all deliveries, and will leave gifts in a safe spot if available
- Delivery drivers will still contact the recipient on delivery by knocking on the door or providing their name at reception
- Delivery drivers are regularly sanitising hands during delivery runs
- Additional workspace cleaning and staff hygiene practices across all of our team
- Expanding physical space between all of our team, as well as our floral and office workstations
- Ceasing staff movements between all of our locations
- Mandatory self-isolation periods for all staff returning from overseas travel
- all meetings with external parties conducted online where possible or off-site
- Discontinuing all business travel for employees
We're committed to ensuring we continue to deliver the most beautiful premium flowers to our customers!
Please note that floral products are not for consumption. Customers and recipients are advised to place arrangements in a safe place away from children or animals who may become ill after ingesting flowers. Specifically, oriental lilies can be harmful for cats.
