Cadia continues to implement our COVID-19 Life Saving Behaviours
-   Wash up - Even if I'm in a hurry I will wash my hands frequently and thoroughly
-  Stay Your Distance - Whenever I am around other people, I will ensure that I stay at least 1.5m from others or, where not possible, employ alternate controls.  
-  Stop at Home - If I display any signs of cold, flu or feel unwell, or have been in contact with someone who has/may have COVID-19, I will not go to work, I will self-isolate from others and advise my supervisor
-  Speak up - When I see others not adhering to the above three behaviours, I will remind them of our COVID-19 Life Saving Behaviours and ensure they demonstrate these behaviours.
