UTAS COVID-Safety Plan

The University must ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of workers and other people. This includes having measures in place to eliminate or manage the risks arising from COVID-19.

Safe Work Australia introduced new regulations regarding COVID-19 which the University must comply with to keep our staff and students safe from Coronavirus.

The new Regulations outline the Minimum Standards required by all businesses to manage the risks of COVID-19 in the workplace. This involves having a COVID-Safety Plan (PPTX 2.7 MB) in place by 15 June 2020.

The plan outlines the identified risks, control measures that provide how the University will resume normal business operations and demonstrate compliance with the new COVID-19 Regulations.

Use the COVID-Safe Plan Checklist (PDF 206.7 KB) to implement the University’s COVID-Safety Plan for your spaces and activities.
