Employers have a duty of care to do what they can, within reason, to protect staff from COVID-19. These include communicating the Department of Health’s hygiene and self-isolation guidelines to staff and knowing which of your staff has a higher risk of serious illness from contracting the virus.
Working from home and in the workplace
Introducing work-from-home setups wherever possible, varying shifts/breaks or flexing hours to reduce staff contact and splitting up offices, and holding meetings online to reduce physical proximity will all help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
These workplace resources, provided by Business Victoria, cover all aspects of hygiene and advice of business change of operation due to COVID-19 (coronavirus).
