Pandemic Planning

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, it is important for businesses and organisations to review their approach to the situation, to ensure operational readiness and mitigate any risks to workplace health and safety (WHS).

All employers should now have a pandemic plan that includes revising and updating the following:

  • Policies and procedures around infection control, including how you will prevent and manage an outbreak

  • COVIDSafe Plan

  • Workforce plan and business continuity plan

  • Regular communications and updates with staff and key stakeholders

  • Employee support services

Workplaces in the healthcare and aged care sector are under particular strain as staff, patients and clients are at greater risk of contracting COVID-19. We have seen COVID-19 outbreaks in aged care and heathcare facilities, causing a crisis around workforce planning, not to mention health and safety.

WorkPlacePLUS is available to assist you with pandemic planning, including updating your WHS and infection control policies, and strategic planning, including updating your business continuity plan. For more information, please contact us today.

Our response to COVID-19

At WorkPlacePLUS, we are committed to providing exceptional HR support services within a safe workplace environment. The health and safety of our clients and team is our highest priority.

Please be advised that, based on the most current health advice by the Government and the World Health Organization, we may ask our consultants to seek alternatives to visiting client premises when conducting our support services. In particular, we may ask our team and clients to use email, telephone, and teleconferencing where possible.

It is also worth noting that, even under Victoria's recent stage 4 restrictions, the team at WorkPlacePLUS was permitted to provide critical employment services on-site that could not be delivered online. WorkPlacePLUS operates a COVIDSafe workplace.

We will continue to update our approach as information becomes available from the World Health Organization and various Australian Government agencies, and we will notify you of any significant changes to our approach.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
