Workplace Health and Safety planning and COVID-19

Posted on 15.05.2020

All Queensland employers have obligations under Work Health & Safety legislation and must take action to protect workers and others at the workplace from the risk of exposure to COVID-19 so far as is reasonably practicable. All employers should put in place their own plan to respond to COVID-19 and to any directives issued by Queensland Health. They should consult with their workers on this plan and display it. This is an internal plan that does not need to be submitted to Queensland Health.

It is recommended that you follow the advice from Workplace Health and Safety Queensland when completing your internal plan to respond to COVID-19: Workplace Risk Management

COVID-19 Management Plan Template for Group Based Outdoor Activities

As a service to the outdoor industry, the Outdoor Council of Australia has prepared a template (“COVID-19 Management Plan Template for Group Based Outdoor Activities“) that presents a series of headings and questions that outdoor operators should consider when developing their internal plan.

The COVID-19 Management Plan Template for Group Based Outdoor Activities draws on the work that was invested by the OCA in the OCA Framework for Rebooting Outdoor Activities, which was released on 8th May 2020.

The COVID-19 Management Plan Template for Group Based Outdoor Activities has been produced to assist organisations in planning for resumption of group activities in a safe and considered way. This template is intended to be used as a general guide, and assist organisations to cover the appropriate issues. Your organisation may have additional issues that need to be included in your Safety/Risk Management Plan.

Please note that this is not a template for a COVID SAFE Plan, which has a technical meaning under the Queensland Roadmap to easing Queensland’s restrictions.

 

Thank you
