COVID Safety Plan

Every workplace must have a COVID risk mitigation plan to help protect the health and safety of workers and others, e.g. customers and visitors.

  • A COVID health and safety plan provides
    COVID health and safety guidance for
    employers to manage low to high risk activities
    during COVID

COVID is Changing the Workplace

The COVID pandemic has fundamentally changed how people live and work and will continue to do so for years to come.

 

  • PCBUs deconstructed jobs into 'component tasks' to examine which tasks can be performed by persons operating remotely instead of those needed at the workplace to reduce coronavirus spread.

 

In some instances working from home during COVID has become the norm, but for others, business continuity during COVID means returning to the workplace under a business COVID operational plan.

Health and Safety Obligations COVID

The person conducting the business or undertaking at a workplace has work health and safety duties for
managing the risk of COVID.
 
Workplace Health and Safety have prepared a COVID plan and risk assessment to assist with COVID 19
workplace compliance.

 

How to Reduce COVID Risk

COVID Safe plan legislation prescribes those persons who conduct a business or undertaking at a workplace must manage potential hazards and risks in relation to COVID 19 by:

 

  • Using a COVID app to collect the appropriate COVID contact details of persons other than workers, e.g. patrons per COVID legislative requirements

  • Advocating workers and other persons to observe physical distancing, e.g. physical distancing floor stickers

  • Coronavirus cleaning and disinfecting your workplace where there is a risk of COVID on surfaces frequently touched

  • Providing handwashing facilities or hand sanitiser for use by workers and other persons at the workplace

  • Notifying visitors verbally or by way of COVID 19 workplace signage to not enter, e.g. COVID safety plan in effect sign, if they are exhibiting any COVID symptoms

  • Having a COVID business plan in place that details how you, your workers and other persons, e.g. patrons, will stay COVID safe

  • Operating under a COVID safe checklist that outlines the COVID safety requirements for the business
