Updated: Jul 20

At Els as a registered NDIS provider, the safety of our staff and ndis participants is our first priority and we take it very seriously. So, we thought to write 8 simple tips below providing a summary for the ndis providers, their staff to manage their safety, and the ndis participants safety who they support.


  • According to the World health organization, it is advisable to drink hot water throughout the day. Eat hot or properly cooked food as coronavirus can't thrive/survive in hot temperatures.

  • Avoid canned, container food. Be cautious before eating seafood and follow food safety measures.

  • Try to keep a hand sanitizer with you all the time. Use it on occasion while traveling by public transport.

  • Wear face masks in public places and even while traveling on trains.

  • While using lifts in hospitals or in public areas, try to use gloves or sanitize your hands.

  • Wash hands after coming home and going to bed. Clean your car air filter and sanitation are required every alternative day if you use your car on daily basis.

  • Sanitation in your home is a must on daily basis, if you are unable to do so because of your disability, ask your support staff member to assist you or do it for you.

  • Finally, wash your hands always before you eat or drink anything.


Most importantly, keep the service NSW if you are in NSW or the Department of health and aged care website saved and handy for the updates.
