HVIA members are encouraged to take proactive steps to keep their workforce safe and to ensure business continuity, following recent warnings by the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee and the Chief Medical Officer, Mr Paul Kelly.
Whilst there is no mandate yet, HVIA was invited to attend a briefing this week by the Federal Government’s Emergency Management Australia taskforce and in turn is urging HVIA members to consider measures aimed at slowing the spread of the Ba4 and Ba5 Omicron subvariants.
This may include:
- Working from home if it is feasible
- Strongly encouraging mask-wearing in the workplace – particularly if inside
- Reminding employees to physically-distance and stay home if symptomatic
- Supplying hand sanitizer
- Supporting the rollout of the booster program.
