What is a COVIDSafe plan?
A COVIDSafe plan supports a business to protect its staff, customers, visitors and the community. You can find out more about COVIDSafe plans on the Victorian Government's Coronavirus website. These plans prepare a business for a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 in the workplace. You can find out more about confirmed COVID-19 workplace cases on the Victorian Government's Coronavirus website.
Every workplace is required to have a COVIDSafe plan that is regularly updated. Random spot checks are taking place across the state to ensure compliance. Failure to comply can result in an on-the-spot fine of up to $10,904 or up to $21,809 for serious offences.
You can use the COVIDSafe plan template(PDF 110Kb) to create a COVIDSafe plan for your workplace however you do not have to use this specific template.
