For Employers and Employees

  • If your employees are unwell, they must stay home.
  • Ensure employees with symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) get tested and stay at home until they receive the results (https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/where-get-tested-covid-19 )
  • Plan contingencies for a potential increase of staff absences because people are self-isolating, self-quarantining or staying home because they are unwell to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
  • Develop an infection control policy and plan for what to do if staff arrive unwell at work (e.g. identify an isolation room or separate area).
  • Display coronavirus (COVID-19) education materials, these can be downloaded and printed from the Resources section on this page.
  • Minimise staff movements between areas and cross-over between shifts.
  • Provide adequate facilities or products (such as hand sanitiser, where available) to allow employees and others who enter the workplace to maintain good hygiene practices.
  • Provide appropriate personal protective equipment, including information or training on why the equipment is necessary and how to safely use it. 
  • Consult with Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs), employees and contractors about the actions you are taking to control risks associated with coronavirus (COVID-19).
  • Socialising among workers has been responsible for some transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19). This includes carpooling, huddling together at meal breaks or smoking in groups without physical distancing, and sharing items such as cigarette lighters and cutlery.
  • Workers should physical distance by keeping 1.5 metres apart from their work colleagues at all times and avoid sharing items such as phones, desks, offices, or other work tools and equipment.
