COVID Response Plan
The COVID-19 Response Plan details the policies and practices necessary for the employer to meet the Government’s ‘Return to Work Safely Protocol’ and to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace.
The plan will give an overview of key areas that employers must assess to ensure compliance with the protocol and to minimise the risk to workers and others. All workplaces, including those with customer-facing interaction or areas where workers share a workplace, are required to develop a plan. The plan needs strong commitment from management and workers and should be developed and put in place in consultation with workers. Consultation with workers’, supervision, clear direction and information for customers and clients is key in ensuring the success of your COVID-19 Response Plan.
The plan is a live working document and it should be reviewed on an ongoing basis and amended to take into account new guidance and/or changes.
