Under WHS law, all employers or businesses are required to assess and manage the risk of COVID-19 to workers and others in the work environment.

To understand the risks to workers and other persons, employers must consider the risks associated with COVID-19 in the context of their workplace, including the physical layout, the work carried out at the workplace and interactions between workers and other persons who attend the workplace.

Employers are then required to implement reasonably practicable control measures to manage the risks of COVID-19 specific to their workplace. Visit SafeWork NSW for more information.

These COVID-19 Safety Plan template outlines actions you can consider taking to minimise the risk of a person with COVID-19 entering the workplace and spreading it to other people. 

There may be other actions you take to manage the risk of COVID-19 in your workplace, based on your specific environment and hazards. It’s up to each workplace to identify appropriate control measures and to comply with WHS law.

Employers should consult with workers in developing their COVID-19 Safety Plan and share it with them when it is finalised.

Fill in your business details and select your business type.

You may need to review current NSW Health guidance on the following areas before completing your plan:

Following your risk assessment, outline the actions you will take in each section to manage the risk of COVID-19 in your workplace.

Once you complete the COVID-19 Safety Plan, select the print button to print the plan or save as a portable document format (PDF). 

Remember to keep a copy of your COVID-19 Safety Plan on your premises.

It’s important to monitor the evolving rules and restrictions and keep your COVID-19 Safety Plan up to date. 

Employers should continually assess the health and safety risks to their workers and others in the work environment, and implement control measures as required.
