High Risk CovidSafe Plan: All metro Melbourne work-sites need one NOW.
Under Victoria’s current Stage 4 restrictions, construction is considered a high risk industry.
All work-sites staying open across metropolitan Melbourne require a High Risk COVIDSafe Plan in addition to a COVIDSafe Plan, and they must be in place now.
Please check the construction-specific Guidance and template on the Business Victoria website here, and ensure each and every one of your work-sites staying open in metropolitan Melbourne areas is meeting the requirements in line with Stage 4 restrictions.
This is critical for industry and community safety, and to do our part to make sure the stage 4 lockdown is no longer than 6 weeks.
