Maintain your COVID-19 Safety Plan

Under work health and safety laws, all employers or businesses must manage the risk of COVID-19 to workers and customers.

COVID-19 Safety Plans show what actions you will take to minimise the risk of a person with COVID-19 entering your workplace and spreading it to other people. 

Notify SafeWork NSW

When a worker contracts COVID-19, SafeWork NSW must be notified if that person requires hospital treatment, or if they die.

Comply with rules and public health orders

Employers and businesses must comply with NSW public health orders and follow the business rules
