With businesses gradually returning to operations since the pandemic, owners are faced with a ‘new normal’ that is continuously evolving. How should you go about preparing and managing a safe back-to-work process for your staff and workplace?

Prime Minister Scott Morrison recently announced 10 principles to guide employers in preparing and implementing practical measures to ensure compliance with WHS duties.

What does this mean for your business?

As the pandemic situation continues to evolve, employers should take steps to control risks both in the short-term and plan for the long-term.

Physical changes in the workplace such as signage, floor markings, screens, social distancing and sanitisation procedures should be addressed for the immediate and short-term, as well as the development of a workplace response plan should an outbreak occurs in the workplace.

For the long term, businesses will need to adapt to further changes in the overall design of the workplace environment. Companies will need to identify areas where contactless technology can be implemented, long-term work from home policies, as well as measures to address the mental health of employees with specific reference to COVID-19.
