Safework Australia has updated its website to provide guidance across a range of industries to assist with COVID-19 prevention. These include a range of industry groups such as cleaning, mining, delivery drivers, warehousing and education and training providers.
The Safe Work Australia updates 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.
