The COVIDSafe Squad by the Victorian Chamber

COVIDSafe

The Victorian Chamber is here to help Victorian businesses. In these challenging times, it is critically important that businesses follow the Victorian Government’s COVIDSafe rules.

This means fewer cases, fewer lockdowns, and a faster return to normality. Following COVIDSafe rules is good for Victorian businesses and our community.

What is the COVIDSafe squad?

We are mobile teams of COVIDSafe advisors who will be visiting businesses of all sizes and industries between now and the end of June 2022. Our goal is to let businesses know what they need to do to achieve and maintain effective COVIDSafe practices.

We are not inspectors; we are not from the government; we are not here to issue fines. We are here to help.

What does a COVIDSafe assessment involve?

If you agree to participate, our team will ask you a series of questions about key COVIDSafe topics, such as your COVIDSafe plan, your check-in system and your physical distancing arrangements.

Our teams will give you practical, helpful feedback on how effective your current practices are, and advise where any opportunities for improvement might be.

Do I have to participate?

No. Participating in a COVIDSafe assessment is completely voluntary.

Are my responses confidential? What information do you collect about my business?

Information we collect about your business is confidential and maintained according to the Victorian Chamber’s privacy policy.

We report de-identified data to the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions (DJPR) on how businesses in different local government areas (LGAs) are performing in different COVIDSafe areas. We do not identify individual businesses.

Where else can I go for support?

The Victorian Chamber has a dedicated COVIDSafe helpline where you can and get expert advice on any COVIDSafe related question that you have. You can contact the COVIDSafe helpline on 03 8662 5365.

Victorian government also provides information, tools and templates to businesses that are available at the following links:
