General COVID-19 safety plan

Resources and guidance for developing a COVID-19 safety plan if your business or industry does not have a specific safety plan.

COVID-19 Safety Plans and COVID Safe registration

Having a COVID-19 Safety Plan in place will help you fulfil your obligations under Public Health Orders to minimise risk of transmission of COVID-19.

We have developed COVID-19 Safety Plan templates for many specific industries.

If your business does not fit within one of these specific industries, it is still recommended you have a plan. Having a COVID-19 Safety Plan in place will help to protect your staff, workers, customers and visitors.

Complete the plan in consultation with staff, then share it with them.

Businesses and organisations 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.

Have an up to date plan at your premises at all times.

Your COVID-19 Safety Plan

You can either:

  • use the provided COVID-19 Safety Plan to address the checklist of matters
  • keep using your existing plan, if you have one, after making sure it includes all the items in the provided COVID-19 Safety Plan.
