Safe Work Australia updates regarding Covid-19 and the workplace.
Safe Work Australia has been updated to provide a central information hub of work health and safety (WHS) guidance and tools that Australian workplaces can use to help manage health and safety risks posed by COVID-19. The website gives users fast and 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. Users can go to COVID-19 Information for workplaces to find information and resources tailored for the Construction and Building Industry.
