Tasmanian Government releases COVID Safe Workplace Guidelines
The Tasmanian Government has released the COVID Safe Workplace Guidelines for the Forestry Industry (the Guidelines). The Guidelines set out what employers should do as they continue, or seek to resume, business operations. By following these Guidelines, workplaces will be able to show their compliance with minimum standards determined by Public Health, and with the requirments of the Work Health and Safety Act. This will help keep workers and other safe from COVID-19.
The Guidelines are intended to work with, and indeed heavily reference, the forest industry-endorsed COVID-19 Recommended Practices for Tasmanian Forest Industry Operations - which detail how to put guidelines into practice relative to each sector of the forest industry.
