Quayclean Australia CEO, Mark Piwkowski, said his staff delivered exceptional results in keeping players, officials and spectators COVID safe during the recent Border-Gavaskar cricket Test series between Australia and India.
Quayclean was responsible for managing cleaning, waste management and presentation services at three of the four Test match venues, namely Adelaide Oval, the Sydney Cricket Ground and the Gabba.
Despite government crowd limiting restrictions at all three venues, a total of 138,531 patrons attended the Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane Test matches.
Piwkowski said he has received excellent feedback from venue managers and health officials after each of the Tests.
“I am thrilled with the praiseworthy comments, both in writing and face-to-face, that I have received about how our staff managed the Test cricket venues,” said Piwkowski.
“These comments come on the back of the great results our staff achieved at venues during last year’s AFL and NRL seasons.
“Our staff carried a heavy responsibility throughout the Test series to ensure all three venues were hygienic and surfaces were free of COVID-19,” he said.
Piwkowski said senior Queensland health officials described the work performed at the Gabba Test as “brilliant”.
“It is very gratifying to hear such comments. Health officials worked closely with our team and said each worker treated the Gabba like their second home and that they approached their work with a sense of pride,” said Piwkowski.
“They also said staff viewed COVID safety as a priority and were motivated to deliver a COVID safe event,” he added.
At each of the Test matches, Quayclean staff conducted regular touchpoint cleaning of all surfaces such as handrails, door handles, light switches and lift buttons.
Staff also performed deep cleaning of toilets, seating bowl and concourse areas after each day of play.
