As a leading global human services provider, APM is closely monitoring the spread of the COVID-19 (“coronavirus”) pathogen. 

As always, our first priority is the safety of our clients and staff.

All APM offices are closely monitoring their local situation and following the advice of medical health authorities and immediately reporting any suspected cases.  

Given much of our work is face-to-face, APM all travel while ensuring that all recent personal and business travel is reported and, where necessary, staff are quarantined. 

Any staff who recently travelled overseas in the past 14 days cannot return to work unless they have a medical clearance. 

In addition, APM has implemented its Universal Infection Control Guidelines and reinforced the need for all staff to exercise proper hygiene to help reduce the spread COVID-19.  

We are delivering this through a rigorous internal hygiene program, including hand sanitiser being available in public areas.  

High-contact areas such as bathrooms, door handles, telephones, grab-rails in corridors and stairwells are cleaned daily and workstations are wiped down with disinfectant before staff start work each day. This includes keyboards, phones and desk surfaces. 

We are practising “social distancing”, which includes no physical contact when greeting people, maintaining 1.5 metres between each other and company-wide restrictions on face to face meetings. Many teams are already working from home. 

Several monitoring protocols have been introduced across the business to further limit any potential spread of the virus.  

APM will continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 and is following the latest advice of health authorities. We will take all necessary action to protect staff, clients and the communities in which we operate. 

If you are an APM client and have travelled overseas in the past 14 days and are scheduled to meet one of our staff, please contact your local APM office and postpone the meeting.

If you are feeling unwell, immediately contact your doctor or seek advice from a hospital.

Medical authorities warn that the following symptoms could indicate COVID-19 infection:

  • fever 
  • breathing difficulties such as breathlessness
  • cough
  • sore throat 
  • fatigue or tiredness
