COVID-19 update April 2020
The health and safety of Rochele’s customers and our painters are our top priority. Rochele Painting is continuing to monitor updates from the Australian Department of Health, and the World Health Organisation to take all necessary measures to keep everybody healthy and safe. We adhere to a strict safety protocol, which follows national guidelines.
Thanks to @fonzieabbott for supplying Rochele Painting with 30 Litres of hand sanitiser for our worksites through SE Qld. Helping to keep our worksites as safe as possible in these trying times!
How quickly life can change but more importantly how quickly we can adapt to that change. Over the past couple of weeks the government has responded to COVID 19 by escalating social distancing rules which has meant that some industries such as hospitality and travel have been severely affected. However, the building and construction industry is still considered an essential service and in many ways is the engine of our Aussie economy. By spending money in building and construction now you are actively stimulating the economy in a very positive way.
We at Rochele Painting appreciate the ongoing support by all our wonderful customers and encourage more people to invest in painting their homes, offices and commercial properties now. We have invested heavily in cloud based technology to allow you to get your property quoted remotely and to enable customers to view the progress of their jobs via online photographic updates. In addition we have changed the way we work to comply with new social distancing rules and hygiene requirements.
Working with our painters
Rochele Painting has strongly encouraged our painters and painting partners to inform our team if they, or a member of their family, are showing symptoms of COVID-19. The affected painters are taken off immediately from any upcoming painting projects. Once they have been declared healthy, they will be ready to be placed on projects again. It is important for us to look out for all our painters, our extended office team as well as our business health.
What can you do?
If you think you have been exposed to the corona virus, please take immediate action and contact your healthcare provider. If you are feeling sick, or if a member of your household has become ill, we encourage you to stay at home. Contact us if you have any open projects.
Book your project now, schedule later
We hope to be able to servicing your paint projects even during these difficult times. Another way we can service you is to pre-schedule paint projects for the future. If you were thinking about a painting project, or if you are planning one for the future, consider booking your project now and scheduling later. Our Project Estimators are available to quote your project remotely and help you schedule it.
Our painter’s best practices
Rochele Painting has issued numerous precautions to our painters working in the field. Best hygiene practices are in place at our head office and our company vehicles are equipped with sanitiser wipes and employees are encouraged to take general hygienic precautions to keep everybody safe from the spread of Covid-19.
As a general reminder of how to slow the spread in Australia, here are some common tips:
- Practise good hygiene
- Practise social distancing
- Understand how and when to self-isolate
- Stay home if you’re sick or have symptoms
We thank you for your continued trust and confidence in Rochele Painting. We continue to offer zero-contact offerings like free remote quoting and will keep adapting to the evolving situation.

We need to adopt a healthy sense of perspective at this time too. The situation may get worse before it gets better BUT it will get better. At Rochele Painting we always take a long term view in business planning. We have weathered numerous global downturns and always come back stronger. Our commitment at present is to keep the business fully operational and work with the management and admin team to adapt intelligently when and if the need arises.
