Our principles of a COVIDSafe workplace
Vaccination is recommended for all workers but no longer mandatory
Consider physical distancing and density of people indoors
Face masks are optional for all workers
Close contacts who test negative must wear a face mask when out of the house
Practise good hygiene
clean and disinfect high touch surfaces
Make soap and hand sanitiser available for all workers and customers throughout the worksite and encourage regular hand washing.
Keep records and act quickly
Support workers to get tested and stay home if unwell
In the event a worker discovers they were infectious with COVID on their shift inform other workers of the exposure.
Consider enclosed spaces
Ensure adequate ventilation indoors.
