We understand how unpredictable and busy your working life is at the moment. COVID has certainly changed the landscape.
Workplace Manslaughter
Posted July 22, 2020 | Category: Safety Blog
The Victorian Government reminded everyone on the 1st July that Workplace Manslaughter is now a criminal offence in Victoria with tough new laws. Minister for Workplace Safety Jill Hennessy said “If an employer’s negligence costs someone their life, they will be prosecuted and may go to jail – that’s now the law.”
Have Your Mask Ready
Posted July 22, 2020 | Category: Health Blog, Safety Blog
WorkSafe, Emergency Management Victoria and Victoria Police have made it clear that they will crack down hard on businesses flouting the new mask rules. The latest figures show that about 80 per cent of Victoria’s COVID cases since May were the result of workplace transmission, including private-sector aged care. A new Victorian directive, from midnight on Wednesday 22 July, means that people in metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire will have to wear a mask. Regardless of whether your staff are able to be socially distant from each other, they will need to wear a mask at work if there is more than one person on site. An inspection and enforcement blitz will be carried out in workplaces across the state.

Facemasks: to wear or not to wear, what type, what are their capabilities – here are some facts for you. Firstly, there is great sense in the official policy (as per the ABC Website) that “face masks are not recommended for healthy individuals, but essential for health workers and sick people”.
Effective Cleaning and Disinfecting
Posted August 13, 2020 | Category: Health Blog
Cleaning is an essential part of disinfection because dirt and grime can inactivate many disinfectants. Cleaning reduces the amount of dirt and so allows the disinfectant to work. Removal of germs such as the virus that causes COVID-19 requires thorough cleaning followed by disinfection.
Working from home
Posted July 22, 2020 | Category: Health Blog, Safety Blog
A Swinburne University survey conducted in May this year shows that three out of four managers believe their staff will do more remote work after the pandemic than before it.  A hybrid model of office and remote work will mean that you’ll need to have in place an effective ‘working from home’ strategy and the associated policies and procedures.
Covid-19 Noise
Posted June 16, 2020 | Category: Noise Blog
Exposure to noise in the workplace can induce hearing loss, which may lead to communication difficulties, social isolation, and reduced quality of life. COVID or no COVID, you are still required to provide a safe work place in terms of noise and Worksafe still expect compliance with relevant legislation and regulations as normal. In fact, WorkSafe is still visiting sites and issuing fines so you have no room for complacency. Whilst you are still required to comply with legislation and regulations, social distancing has changed the way that both Occupational and Environmental Noise Assessments have to be conducted.
