All businesses and organisations must conduct a COVID-19 risk assessment and implement measures to mitigate identified risks of COVID-19, to keep staff and other people within the setting safe. COVID-19 risk assessments and safety plans (if you have one) should be reviewed regularly.
Resources are available at WorkSafe Tasmania.
Preparing your business for COVID-19 cases and outbreaks
Once you have conducted your COVID-19 risk assessments, you must put in place measures to mitigate identified risks of COVID-19. You may choose to document this information in a COVID-19 Safety Plan, or in a Case and Outbreak Management Plan that captures how your business or organisation will respond to a confirmed case of COVID-19 in your workplace or setting.
Preparing for and managing COVID-19 in the workplace
Your response to a confirmed COVID-19 case linked to your business or organisation will aim to protect other people and continue your normal activities as safely and soon as possible.

COVID-19 transmission is a risk to workers and other people in Tasmanian workplaces and employers still have obligations under the Work Health and Safety Act 2012 to keep their workers, contractors and visitors COVID safe.
