Health advice to protect resources employees from COVID-19

COVID safe management plans

Every workplace must have a COVID safe management plan that demonstrates how you will meet all requirements set out by the Chief Health Officer. It does not need to be submitted for approval but should be made available when requested. You can use the Work health and safety plan for COVID-19 (PDF, 191KB).

How to isolate – coronavirus (COVID-19)

Ensure you are aware of the isolation requirements for any employees who are diagnosed with COVID-19. These are detailed in the Chief Health Officer's direction – How to isolate.

Safety measures to protect employees

The following safeguard measures are encouraged across the resources sector.

In camps

  • Infection control in kitchens and food preparation areas
  • Suitable accommodation for self-quarantine
  • Social distancing in camps, including for recreational activities and outdoor sport
  • Limiting movement of employees from camps and into the broader community
  • Ban on 'hot bedding' to limit contact between employees
  • Cleaning rooms thoroughly between uses, including changing and washing linen

On transport

  • Avoiding close contact during transport, including reducing the numbers of people travelling on buses and aircraft
  • Thorough cleans between passenger loads getting off and those getting on
  • Temperature testing at airports for passengers boarding aircraft
  • Ensuring people with symptoms do not travel and immediately isolate and seek medical advice
  • Reducing FIFO and DIDO during the COVID-19 to minimise the mass movement of people
