COVID-19 SWMS and Procedures

Under the Work Health and Safety laws, employers have a duty to provide a safe working environment for workers, that includes identifying risks and implementing control measures to reduce potential harm.

Within the current climate, exposure to COVID-19 is considered a risk, as death may result.
PCBU’s must therefore do everything reasonably practicable to keep workers safe.

Control measures to reduce the risk of infection may include:

  • Maintaining Worker and site hygiene
  • Social / physical distancing
  • Keeping workers up to date on COVID-19 information
  • Providing adequate facilities and equipment for workers
  • Maintaining a safe working environment

It is the responsibility of all employers and site personnel to minimise the spread of COVID-19, alongside the usual site safety measures.

To assist Principal Contractors, SiteBook is providing a free SWMS for COVID-19, and a COVID-19 Procedures Guide for Construction Workers.
