Creating a COVIDSafe Plan
From 11:59pm on 13 September 2020, it is mandatory for every Victorian business to have a COVIDSafe Plan.
To ensure compliance, random spot checks are underway in metropolitan Melbourne and will commence in regional Victoria from 29 September 2020.
Your COVIDSafe Plan must set out:
- Your actions to help prevent the introduction of coronavirus (COVID-19) in your workplace
- The level of facecovering or personal protective equipment (PPE) required for your workforce
- How you will prepare for, and respond to, a suspected or confirmed case of coronavirus (COVID-19) in your workplace
- This plan must demonstrate how you will meet all the requirements set out by the Victorian Government. Some higher-risk industries or workplaces have additional requirements of employers and employees.
Businesses must review and update their COVIDSafe Plans routinely, especially when restrictions or public health advice changes. Organisations with multiple worksites must complete a COVIDSafe Plan for each worksite.
