Safework Australia updates COVID-19 advice for managing workplace risk
Safe Work Australia’s website has been updated to provide a central hub of work health and safety (WHS) guidance and tools to help Australian workplaces manage the health and safety risks posed by COVID-19.
The website gives users easy access to guidance that is directly relevant to their specific industry. It includes guidance about physical distancing, personal protective equipment, cleaning, workers’ compensation, how to conduct risk assessments and design emergency plans, as well as providing case studies to help explain how to manage the risk of COVID-19 in the workplace.
Go to COVID-19 Information for workplaces and filter the content using the new drop-down menus to find information and resources tailored for:
• employers, small business and workers
• the industry you work in, and
• the health and safety topic that you would like information on.
You can also use the search bar to find specific COVID-19 WHS content or browse through the information for your industry.
Safe Work will be updating their information and guidance as the COVID-19 situation evolves.
