While there have been some improvements across many regions across the world, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a serious impact on people’s health and livelihoods. Quest is working hard to assist in the global fight against the virus and to support recovery efforts. One of our most significant roles has been to keep energy supplies flowing. Beyond this, we estimate that Quest’s total contribution during the pandemic, including donations of food and services, so far runs into millions, largely as voluntary initiatives.
Our priority remains to support our colleagues, our customers, and the communities where we work.
We have taken many steps to protect the health of our colleagues, including mandating strict compliance to COVID-19 protocols such as wearing face masks, encouraging office-based staff to work from home when they feel sick, depending on the advice of local authorities.
For people working on our stations, or other facilities, we continue to enforce social distancing and carry out health screening, and have procedures in place to allow the safe evacuation of any suspected cases of COVID-19.
Similarly, in our network of fuel retail stations, we are enforcing social distancing, wearing masks by our attendants, and carrying out deeper cleaning. Our confidential counseling service is available to help colleagues experiencing the psychological impact of the pandemic, and we continue to provide extra online resources to help people manage their physical and mental well-being.
