Coronavirus (COVID-19) Workplace Risk Management

A coronavirus (a type of virus) identified in 2019, SARS-CoV-2, has caused a pandemic of respiratory illness, called COVID-19. 

It spreads from person to person in a similar way to the flu:

  • From close contact with an infected person
  • From touching objects or surfaces contaminated by the sneeze or cough of an infected person and then touching your eyes, nose or mouth

COVID-19 can cause symptoms similar to the flu including fever, cough, sore throat, tiredness or shortness of breath.

It has caused millions of deaths and hospitalisations across the globe and has quintessentially changed how businesses can function.

  • Measure that are required to be put in place to minimize COVID-19
  • Compliance to Work Health and Safety laws
  • Self-quarantine methodology

  • Proactive risk management with personal protective equipment

It doesn’t matter if you’re a worker or someone who is responsible for workers, you must identify and manage work health and safety risks including the exposure to COVID-19. Businesses should also plan to response to cases of COVID-19 at work.
