COVID-19 Safety plans for agriculture
This plan should be read in conjunction with the COVID-19 Safety Plan for agriculture.
This plan is specifically for employers who are obtaining services from a Victorian resident as a critical service agriculture worker.
These Victorian residents are permitted to enter NSW under a critical service (agriculture) permit.
The requirements in this COVID-19 Safety Plan are more stringent than in the COVID-19 Safety Plan for agriculture.
In this plan, employer means the head of the organisation employing the permit holder or, if the person is self-employed, the person who has engaged them to provide the service.
COVID-19 Safety Plans and COVID Safe registration
Having a COVID-19 Safety Plan in place will help minimise risk of transmission of COVID-19 on your premises.
Complete the plan in consultation with your workers, then share it with them.
Agriculture businesses and farms should also consider the benefits of registering as COVID Safe.
Keep your plan up to date
You may need to update the plan in the future, as restrictions and advice changes.
You will need to have an up to date plan at your premises at all times and be able to show it to an authorised officer if requested.
Your COVID-19 Safety Plan
You can either:
- use the provided COVID-19 Safety Plan to address the checklist of matters for critical agricultural workers resident within 100km of NSW/Victoria border
- keep using your existing plan, if you have one, after making sure it includes all the items in the provided COVID-19 Safety Plan.
Things to note:
Register as a COVID Safe business
If you've completed your COVID-19 Safety Plan, you can register as COVID Safe.
