Re. "Essential Services"
D&D Technologies fully understands the concerns of all Fence & Gate Security/Safety and Access Control industry professionals in the event of a national, regional, state or local order directing all residents to stay home and/or businesses to shut down. It is of the utmost importance to heed these orders and be well educated on how this affects your company.
Amid all the various government statements and media confusion of what is and isn’t an “essential service”, D&D Technologies feels the need to offer some clarification, as we see it, especially for those of you without the time and resources to investigate the ever-changing facts.
The international consensus is that the installation and maintenance of Fencing and Access Control (including gates and gate hardware) is deemed an “Essential Service”.
D&D believes that, as defined by the Australian Government, its activities and that of its customers and vendors fall under this classification – an important supplier to an “essential service”.
If an order is placed upon your area, such as...
“ALL NON-ESSENTIAL SERVICES BY YOUR COMPANY THAT DO NOT SUPPORT THE FOLLOWING MUST BE TERMINATED:
Healthcare/Public Health, Law Enforcement, Public Safety, Emergency Medical Service, Food and Agriculture, Energy, Water and Wastewater, Transportation and Logistics, Public Works, Communications and Information Technology, Community-Based Government Operations and Essential Functions, Critical Manufacturing, Hazardous Materials, Financial Services, Chemical and Defence Industrial.”
...you should consider that PROPER DOCUMENTATION (confirmation) that your business activity and travel is related to maintaining, preserving or constructing fencing, gates and/or access control systems providing security to essential businesses and government operations, you should qualify as an Essential Critical Infrastructure Worker.
So long as we adhere to Government decrees regarding “social distancing” it’s all systems go for those in the fencing, gate and access control industries.
