GUIDANCE AND TEMPLATE FOR PERMITTED INDUSTRY EMPLOYEE TRAVEL IN VICTORIA

As details emerge regarding how Permitted Industries can operate under stand 4 restrictions, two things are known.  Such businesses will need to create a “COVID19 Safe Plan” (see next story) and ensure that employees understand their responsibilities and if required to travel to work at a Permitted Industry, workers must to carry a Worker Permit if they are going to travel to and from work.

The Victorian Government has detailed eligibility requirements and provided a template permit.

VICTORIAN BUSINESS ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE A COVID19 SAFE PLAN COMPLETED BY 11:59 ON 7 AUGUST 2020

Business Victoria has provided guidance and templates for developing a COVID Safe Plan.  The Department of Human Health Services provides more detailed information regarding COVID19 prevention measures to be taken in the workplace, for example business continuity planning, Personal Protective Equipment, social distancing and cleaning to name a few.   This information may also be of interest to members in other states who are seeking to update their COVID19 emergency preparedness procedures.
