Sensible COVID workplace rules welcomed


Release Date: 3/06/2020
The TCCI has welcomed the announcement by the Attorney-General yesterday of the Government’s decision to use the sensible approach of regulating COVID-19 safety in workplaces using Public Health Directions, and the provisions of the existing Workplace Health and Safety Act.
 
“This is a welcome and sensible decision which will help keep workplaces safe from COVID-19, without over-burdening business with red tape or creating regulatory uncertainty,” Chief Operating Officer Colleen Reardon said.
 
“It is important to note, this is the approach which has been adopted in every other state or territory.
 
“There is a wealth of information the Government has made available to help make workplaces COVID-safe, including templates and detailed sector guidance. I am confident that Tasmanian businesses will do the right thing – as they have been – and do everything they can to follow the rules, and keep their employees and customers safe.”
