Latest guidance on COVID-safe workplaces and transition planning (News)

16 October 2020

As COVID-19 restrictions ease across Australia, Comcare has developed guidance to help employers support workers as they transition back to usual workplaces.

Employers must follow local conditions and the relevant state and territory restrictions as part of their transition planning. The plan should be tailored to meet relevant industry or geographic circumstances and respond to changing COVID-19 risks as restrictions change over time.

Transition plans should also consider the following:

  • Risk management in an evolving environment
  • Worker mental health and wellbeing.
  • Maintaining a COVID-safe workplace
  • Transitional arrangements for workers based on individual circumstances

This latest guidance also includes a list of resources for further COVID-19 information and restriction updates. You can also learn more about how to safely transition workers back to usual workplaces
