Employing local workers in agribusiness and commercial fisheries during COVID-19

All businesses must manage the risks of COVID-19 in their workplace.

If you only employ local workers who are returning to their permanent residence after work each day, you still need to manage the risk of COVID-19 under your work health and safety obligations.

You should have a workplace health and safety (WHS) plan (PDF, 180KB) in place that explains how you intend on protecting yourself and your workers from exposure to COVID-19. All businesses must also follow any relevant Public Health Directions.
