Specialised Health Risk Assessment for Workplaces

Purpose

This guide is to be used by employers or self-employed persons to assess the potential risk of exposure to COVID-19 infection and control measures at all workplaces. (SARS-CoV-2 virus is the causative virus of Covid-19).

Objectives

  • to identify and assess the potential risk of exposure to SARS-CoV-2 virus at screening and testing facilities and workplaces
  • to identify control measures (or the absence of control measures) and assess their effectiveness to reduce the risk of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 virus from recognised and unrecognised sources of infection in a workplace
  • to inform the management and employees of the risk of potential exposure to SARS-CoV-2 virus and additional controls that might be required.

This guide serves as a departure point for employers, self-employed persons and appropriately qualified persons to guide their COVID-19 Risk Assessments. This content must not be regarded as the absolute content of a Risk Assessment, rather it is the minimum requirements.
