National guide for safe workplaces—COVID-19


Safe Work Australia has developed a new guide to help businesses decide how to manage the risk of COVID-19 in the workplace.

The National guide for safe workplaces – COVID-19 is now available on the Safe Work Australia website.

The Guide provides practical guidance for work health and safety (WHS) duty holders about how to work safely during the pandemic.

It can be used by any duty holders under the model WHS laws who have a role in managing the risk of COVID-19, including persons conducting a business or undertaking, persons with management or control of the workplace and officers.

The Guide aligns with and complements Safe Work Australia’s more detailed COVID-19 information for workplaces.
