As COVID-19 restrictions begin to ease, many businesses and their employees are preparing to return to work.

APSCo Australia is delighted to welcome back Brianna Cattanach from Workplace Risk at Gallagher to assist your business with its workplace health, safety and risk considerations.

The risks associated with exposure to COVID-19 will differ from business to business depending on a range of factors including the nature of work, geographic location, business size, workforce demographics and clientele.

Some considerations may also include (but not be limited to):

  • Employee mental health
  • The current rate of COVID-19 cases in the local community or region
  • The current Public Health Orders (PHOs) for your area and how they apply to your business
  • The latest advice from authorities on control measures
  • How prepared is your business if there is a case of COVID-19 in the workplace?
  • Do you have workers that fall within a vulnerable worker category?
  • What are your current cleaning and disinfecting arrangements?
  • What employee communication and support mechanisms are in place?
  • Do changes to the business made as a result of COVID-19 change the risk?
