COVID-19 Ready Business

COVID-19 spread is emotionally challenging for many people, changing day-to-day life in unprecedented ways. All sections of society – including employers and employees – should play a role to protect themselves and each other and help prevent further spread of the disease.

 

WHO is providing advice and updated information on COVID-19, and on how employers can protect their employees, what measures they should take in the workplace and other related factors.

The model Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws require workplaces to take care of the health, safety and welfare of workers, including staff, contractors and volunteers, and others (clients, customers, visitors) at your workplace.

This includes:

  • providing and maintaining a work environment that is without risk to health and safety

  • providing adequate and accessible facilities for the welfare of workers to carry out their work, and

  • monitoring the health of workers and the conditions of the workplace for the purpose of preventing illness or injury.

SpeakEasy Teleprompt is committed staying up to date with current practice, and to eliminating the risk of exposure to COVID-19 as far as is reasonably practicable.

 

SpeakEasy Teleprompt will undertake to protect workers from the risk of exposure to COVID-19 by, for example: 

  • considering working from home arrangements 

  • requiring workers to practice physical distancing  

  • requiring workers to wear PPE where required or mandated

  • requiring workers to practice good hygiene (e.g., through workplace policies and ensuring access to adequate and well stocked hygiene facilities)

  • requiring workers to stay home when sick, and 

  • cleaning the workplace regularly and thoroughly.
