COVID-19 information for workplaces


Safe Work Australia has published new work health and safety guidance for COVID-19.


Guidance on managing risks from COVID-19 is now available for:

· Gyms and fitness centres

· Beauty salons and day spas

· Cultural institutions

· Cinemas

Please note, restrictions have been in place for these industries. Restrictions are being relaxed in different jurisdictions at different times. Businesses must only operate to the extent permissible under the public health directions in each state or territory they provide services.

Certain activities may not be permissible in your state or territory at this time and therefore some of the proposed measures may not be relevant to your workplace.


New information has also been published about Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Systems. It includes information on managing risks to health and safety from HVAC systems, for example, when restarting systems that have been temporarily shut down.
