Covid Safe plan

I will be following current safe hygiene procedures and following current risk reduction plans. As a permitted worker I am allowed to work in Regional Victoria and will be carrying my permit as well as a COVID-Safe plan with me at all times.

General Safe Practices

Physical Distancing & Prevention

  • All meetings will be held over the phone or teleconference such as Skype/Zoom.
  • Postpone any photo shoots that are not urgent where possible
  • Stay 1.5m apart as much as possible

Health

  • If I am feeling unwell I will self isolate and another photographer will be assigned.
  • If I am confirmed to have COVID-19, I will isolate for a minimum of 14 days and any close contacts are to monitor for symptoms and seek medical advice.

Equipment

  • All equipment being used for a shoot is cleaned prior to being used and after.
  • Client/guests are not to handle any of the photographer’s equipment – including loading in/out.
  • Photographers will no longer be able to assist in taking photos using another person’s camera/phone.

Hygiene

  • Carrying hand sanitiser and having it made available to clients
  • Ensuring extra hand washing & sanitising is adhered to; ie picking up an item.

Face Masks

  • A face mask will be worn at all times whilst monitoring how it is worn on myself and assistant if using
  • Using a new or cleaned face mask every day

Record Keeping

  • Keeping all records of photographer job movements/client details
  • Record keeping of key personal such as other suppliers if needed to contact
  • In the event that I become unwell up to 14 days after the event, I will contact the couple and suppliers and inform them that I am going for testing and awaiting results. I will advise them of results
  • Having a process and responsibility for notifying DHHS and WorkSafe if COVID positive
  • Temperature checking myself and assistant (if using) before a job

Booked in & Feeling unwell?

If you are feeling unwell and have any flu-like symptoms please let me know, I kindly request that any photography sessions are postponed and I will be happy to rearrange any sessions booked.

I want to reassure all my clients that if in the event I were unable to attend your photography session or wedding due to the virus or self isolation, I have a network of amazing photographers that I would call on to replace me on the day. All post production would fall under the Georgia Verrells Photography brand so the final product would meet the same standard.
